I was so excited to run across this old vanity.

and Mama always taught me to never judge a book by it’s cover.

Or a vanity.

My tools of choice, when stripping.

Mr. reFresh’s toothbrush and a plastic scraper.

Stained the top.

This was the most exciting part for me.

Most of the time I don’t find stuff with great tops.

This one is pretty great!

I used a sanding block and distressed the mess out of it.

Applied clear and dark wax.

I used a small paint brush to put dark wax around the duck egg blue, in the crevasses.

That was his old toothbrush.

And he loved that he was able to contribute to the makeover.

Even if it was through an old toothbrush.

We had some fun on Facebook, the night I did this piece.

Laughing about the toothbrush.

  6. Maybe Annie Sloan should start making toothbrush tools in complimenting chalk paint colors? The Duck Egg Blue Reach Toothbrush for DIY’ers. Use it on your teeth, or on your furniture.

    Nice of the mister to sacrifice his old toothbrush — who knows what other uses he could’ve found for that bad boy? ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hey Debbie,

    It looks so pretty! Check out my newest post. Your stump table is on of the my features. As always, thanks for the inspiration and great ideas. You ROCK! Glad to know your husband got a new toothbrush.

  10. Just beautiful! I have a similar style vanity I’m pulling apart at the moment. Been in my too hard pile for too long because the top front edge was badly broken. So we took the whole top off (harder than it seems with a piece so old), cut it in two and in the midst of making 2 small bedsides out of the drawer sections. Looking forward to finishing this never ending saga. She better look good. Already a fan of yours on Facebook. Very nice to read your blog. Thanks.
