|I'm flippin' off the camera with the wrong finger.|
On to a lady named Vonda. Today we are going to visit Vonda of Antiqued With Love based in Gilbertown, Alabama. When Vonda decided to purchase this vanity after seeing it advertised for sale she was too late. Another person had offered to buy it. As luck would have it, that sale fell through and Vonda had it in her possession.
The vanity had it's issues but nothing that Vonda hadn't seen before. She decided to do a paint/stain combo on it. She sanded it down, primed it, and painted two coats of Valspar Signature Latex Satin in Lovely Bluff on the body. Then she distressed it and dark glazed it to give it an antiqued look . For the top she stained it Java gel stain and then sealed it with polyurethane.
This color combination really looks good on this piece. See for yourself...
Beautiful. Let's look at a couple of more pictures...
Alas, this vanity sold before she even finished it's transformation so if you were hoping your honey would buy it for you for Valentine's Day, you are out of luck.
Speaking of Valentine's Day, it seems like just yesterday that my own honey and I traveled all over the countryside looking for a vanity table to redo for me as a Valentine's Day gift. It was one of our first flips together. When we were finished, my husband wanted to be sure I would always remember how much he loved me, if I ever felt like clobbering him with the chair. (Would I do that? Hehehe...no.) He wrote me this sweet message on the bottom of the chair. We still laugh about it and I have yet to pick it up and swing it at him. We completed that flip four years ago today! It's a sweet memory and I'm grateful for the hard work that went into that.
Even more recently, as our vanity table now has it's own little alcove to sit in. Yes, we measured the vanity and planned the closets my husband built on either side of it. (You gotta love living in an old home that literally only has (had) one closet in the entire house.) Forgive the picture, it's a hard room to photograph with a cellphone.
Let's talk about Vonda again. You've seen her work here before. (Get your flip in so we can see your work here, too!) Three times previous to be exact! (See readers, you can submit more than one flip and be featured more than one time!) We saw her sweet Owl chest of drawers.
And another vanity table...
and a beautiful china cabinet. She takes a lot of pride in her work and it shows.
Thanks so much Vonda for sharing your gorgeous vanity! You can find Vonda on her Antiqued With Love Facebook page. Let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'!
Three flips down, two more to go this week Will yours be one of them?
See you tomorrow!
