I found this vanity/dresser at a thrift store and knew it would look perfect painted white with some extra shabbiness. Its drawers were perfect (which is rare for me lately), and it was really in perfect condition.
Here is the before:
Here is the after:
To get the look I painted it with two coats of my DIY chalk paint (I will be posting my updated recipe soon!). I then distressed all the details and edges for a soft worn look.
Here are a few close up pictures of the distressing:
I waxed it with clear wax and buffed it for a soft shine. I love my DIY chalk paint, because it’s so easy to work with and it is SO much cheaper than name brand chalk paint. I do tend to use name brand every once in awhile, because I do love it. I’m planning on doing a comparison series soon!
Have a great weekend!
