From So So to Soooo Fabulous

The master bath vanity was new, but very plain Jane natural maple. And No No No plain Jane for me. I used some deglosser to take off the top sheen,which I don't think works that well.. so a little fine sandpaper all over, wipe down and clean..time to paint. I used a colonial cream for the base and the cabinet doors, 2 coats. Then a watery blue for the trim. It was sky blue until I antiqued it, yup 2 coats, I sanded it off in spots for the worn look. I then antiqued it with a minwax cherry stain. I got out my trusty paint brushes to add some small floral and leaf pattern. I added some spattering to age it more. I was aiming for a French country hutch look, by adding more wood appliques, and trim the finished look is just the thing I wanted.

  1. Suzie it turned out beautifully! And looks extremely expensive. Hats off to you! I wish I could paint like that.
