When I found this cute little vanity, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do with it, even though it no longer had its mirror. I had purchased Dixie Belle Flamingo and fell in love with the color and thought it would be perfect with gold accents. I also wanted to use Prima Poppy Gardens transfer mixed with Prima Gilded Home and Nature. I did an accompanying jewelry box with the same transfers and gold gilding wax.
The jewelry box was sanded and painted. I then added the polka dots in gilding wax after making a stencil with my Silhouette machine. I did the drawer sides too, just for a little surprise. There were only a few knobs left, so I ordered these pretty ones to replace them. I layered a bee and the word LOVE over the Poppy transfers. It was then sealed.
After cleaning and sanding the vanity and stool I used a product to help the paint adhere to the pieces, since they were still a bit slick. After painting I added gold details to the top and added gold to the legs that makes it looks as though they were dipped in gold. I used Poppy Gardens and Gilded Home and Nature transfers once again. I layered a butterfly over one of the poppies and used a crown and the word ROYAL transfer in the middle. On to the stool, it needed to have the seat fabric replaced and then I added a transfer to the seat. I waxed over the transfer to help make sure it was protected. Since a vanity does not get hard wear I am pretty sure it will hold up just fine. Vanity and stool legs were sealed and now it is waiting for my daughter to claim it.
