ART DECO VANITY

Around two months ago we bought this piece and many others at a thrift shop that belongs to a Methodist Church here in our community.
This beautiful Art Deco vanity was in need of much love to became a Gorgeous Piece...



Art Deco furniture has geometric and angular shapes, zig zag forms and bold outlines...
How to bring this piece back to life without kill the essence of the style?

 
Here is a "before" picture
 
 
My decision was so hard. I decided to keep the round top in wood, showing the beauty of the grain honoring the exotic woods were used in the early years of the 20th. century...
 
 
 I painted the rest in Antique White, my own chalk paint recipe. Working with the distress to highlight the geometric details and shapes.
Also changed the hardware for the most unnoticeable set I have in hands.
 Remember: Don't kill the style!



I love this Vanity!!
Has elegance, style and luxury...
 

Hope you fall in love with it!
 
Thankful! Jacqueline
