Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures created another farmhouse-style beauty with Vanilla Frosting!

Hey y’all,

Today I have a makeover of a vanity. It started out in pretty rough shape. It didn’t have the mirror that came on it, there was some peeling veneer on the sides, and the wood was so dry and it just needed help. Sometimes when you get a piece of furniture you know what you’re going to do with it then when you start it, but it doesn’t go as planned. Well this is how this one started out…

As you can see it has some places that needed help. So once I sanded down the places that needed it and got it as smooth as I could for painting, I added two coats of Vanilla Frosting to get good coverage.

After that on the inside of the vanity and on the sides there was small indents that were still kinda messed up, so I decided to use textured wallpaper on the insides and on the sides of the vanity.

After that I distressed the whole piece very heavily for an old, worn look, like it came right out of a barn!

Then I used natural wax to finish everything off! I love how this turned out and how the textured wallpaper gives it just a little extra pop for a little charm.
