Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures refurbished this beautiful antique vanity with a little help from Cheesecake and Lazy Linen to give it a light, airy look. Come read all about how she achieved this style!

Hey y’all it’s Olivia again, Today I am going to show a make over of a vanity that was given to my mother from my Grandma. It has never been painted but it was pretty rough with veneer coming off the drawer and a lot of scratches through the years. I think the vanity is pretty close to 100 years old!

I would have loved to keep it the deep stain color but it was time to be updated. So I sanded the drawer to make the raised places from the veneer smooth before I started painting it.

I choose the colors Cheesecake for the base of it and for the mirror and used Lazy Linen on the drawer. It all relieved to coats of paint and was heavily distressed in places where natural wear would have been make it have that old feel again.

The piece was finished in natural wax.

I wasn’t worried about the dings in the wood that just helps add to the charm and leaves the history of the piece there and still lets it be old with new paint added to it!

I also left the knobs original to the piece they were already the perfect color and just needed a little dusting off. What do y’all think about the makeover?
