Vintage vanity

Like i may have mentioned in another post, I have been very busy painting all Spring and Summer.  I have had a lot of custom orders.  I picked up this vanity along the road.  I was out shopping "alone", which is a very rare occasion.  The kids were home with the hubs, and on my way home I spied this vanity along the side of the road.  Luckily it was less than a mile from home, and since I was in the car, I rushed home, grabbed hubby and the truck and went back to pick it up!

One of my followers immediately asked me to hold it for her.  She came over, we talked color and she wanted it to look old.
I got to painting.

Then the sander came out, and my own mix of "dark" wax.
And it was delivered!

Coffee table transformation

I have been busy, VERY busy! My following on facebook has been growing, and painting furniture has kept me busy all Spring and Summer.  I'd say I need a vacation, but I love what I do.  The other weekend I ran out to a yard sale and picked up this haul!  Luckily I had my hubby's truck.

In the middle there is a coffee table.  A few months ago I turned a low sitting coffee table into a padded bench.

SOOOOOO, since I already turned a coffee table into a bench, I needed another challenge. I had some kitchen table legs hidden in my shed...and started the tear apart of the coffee table.

After my black, I thought it still needed something else...a little dry brushing maybe?

Now I have already had offers on this table, but I think I may keep it!
