This vanity started out white, then someone painted over it , sort of, with beige, then I came along and bought it and let it sit for a few weeks…

I bought the chair separately but it fit into the kneehole perfectly. I have a beautiful ikat patterned fabric that has a bit of purple and lavender so I chose to paint the vanity purple…it’s PURPLE alright.

This vanity was given to me by a very generous friend. It so happened another friend was looking for a piece of furniture to use as a diaper changing station in the nursery of her soon to be born baby girl. This was one of those times when things just fall into place because she loved the idea of using it!
I got to work stripping and sanding and I painted it to match some furniture she already had. I used white as a base color and cement gray as the top color then sanded it again to let the white show through. After all that I added a shelf using molding attached to the inner sides and used wide base molding to make the shelf. I painted that to match and waxed the whole piece with Annie Sloan Clear Wax. I then added the carved wood decorative squares to dress it up a little and then added the knobs. Can’t wait to see it in the nursery!
