When Shanna of Restoration Redoux first saw this vintage vanity, not only was it really dirty, it had been spray painted brown. A free find from Craigslist, it had definitely seen better days.
Luckily, Shanna is no stranger to furniture makeovers, and could see the hidden potential in this piece. Shanna tells us, “I cleaned it up and painted it with a metallic silver paint. I then used an antiquing glaze to give it a bit of an aged look. I spray painted the hardware a metallic silver and coated the vanity with poly.” It definitely took some effort, but when you see the vanity now, you have to admit it was really worthwhile.
