Why I love Paint! Paint can fix anything, make almost anything beautiful again, can change a room, a feel, or a style. Such an inexpensive way to redecorate, I say Paint everything before you throw it away.
This beauty of a dressing table is very vintage, looks almost handmade from the type of wood, the drawer sliders very rustic, can't tell so much from picture but when drawers are out you can see the hammered nails, the craftsmanship of each piece of wood.
A good friend was going to throw this away, she was almost embarrassed to ask if I would want this little treasure. SIllY girl!
Look how beautiful it came out, I didn't even sand it, just painted it, lightly distressed it, and added some polyurethane to coat it and a darling vintage dressing table/vanity..
My bit of advice for the day- if ever your thinking of throwing something away, a tin, piece of furniture,cowboy boots, old sign (really anything) AT least paint it, just to see how it would look, you just never know what beauty-charming detail you missed until you paint.
some little kid boots from goodwill, painted white-added red flowers and a cute 4th of July decoration.
