Oh La La Vanity!
Vanity Makeover Step-by-Step Process:
Here is the full process and products I used to achieve this makeover! This vanity was a custom piece from a bomba** coffee shop owner in town and I was so excited when she said I just want it white, you do whatever else you want to it!

CLEAN AND PREP:
- Removed hardware, mirror and compartments inside
- Light sand to pull off chipping paint
- Cleaned entire piece with Simple Green
- Let air dry
- Painted three coats of Country Chic Crinoline Clay All-in-One Paint
- Let dry completely after each coat (24 hrs)
- The 3rd coat I added a little water by taking a spray bottle and gave the vanity a little sprit of water and on my brush as well (Watering it down helps the paint glide on easier and cover any brush strokes from the previous coats.
- Distressed with 220 grit sanding block. I like to get a shoulder workout in!
- I sanded the edges, the drawers, and under the handles until I revealed some of the wood underneath. Especially on the legs to pull out the detail of the curve.
- Removed dust from distressing using Simple Green.
- I really wanted the inside to have a pop to it so with that I order these floral napkins off amazon and decided to decoupage the inside of the drawers and vanity!
- To decoupage you will need to pull off 2 of the the plys of the napkin, leaving only the decorated ply. Usually napkins are 2 or 3 ply.
- Grab some mod podge and lightly cover the surface in which you will place your napkin on.
- Lightly place your napkin onto the surface, grab some plastic wrap and start pressing down- working out all the air bubbles and lines.
- Let dry 48 hrs
- Cover with a clear poly or top coat.
- For the hardware, I used the original hardware and added a gold shimmer to them with testors crafts gold leafing paint
