More chalk paint magic!
I had looked at every garage and estate sale, asked every hoarder friend (of which I have many!), and checked out every antique store...twice...when there it was.
The perfect size. The perfect shape. The perfect dining room buffet, just waiting to be rejuvenated into the perfect bathroom vanity.
And I was just the woman to do it!
So once again I pulled out my Annie Sloan Duck Egg Chalk Paint and performed Annie Sloan magic.
Since it was going to be used in the master bath, I made sure it got a GOOD waxing, first with clear wax, then with dark wax, then with clear again.
I needed, of course, the perfect sink for the piece. Really, I needed TWO sinks. I had to get twice as lucky with the sinks but with the help of the gal at my plumber's supply house, I got these two beauties, which are discontinued models. Isn't that always the way it goes? She really came through for me.
The shower curtain is a Wal-Mart cheapie but I love it. It ties together the the chalk paint colors and the flooring. Don't hate me for going to WM this once!
Next post? Lighting for this room. You won't believe it!!!
No, not these lights. You'll just have to stay tuned!
