Now, for a round of before+after. :)
I finished painting this Vanity last night.
It is vintage. The veneer on the sides was chipped, and it had gotten a bit scratched up, and dusty. I have been feeling adventurous in the color dept. due to my unusually reserved choice in paint colors for the "studio" (creamy white), and had a sudden need for more mint in my life. :)
It was a dark chocolate brown color.
To create my mint, I got a quart of a darker green called "Irish beauty" which is a sort-of Kelly green. Then I mixed it with some cotton white paint to create the shade for the furniture.
I ended up with a much more intense color than I had first planned on (I was going for a muted off-white version), but in the end, I really like the result.
This is a very tall piece/I couldn't quite get the whole thing into the photo.

I hadn't really noticed all of the lovely and ornate details until I started sanding and painting the vanity.
The middle drawer. I love all of the hardware from this piece.

I have more furnishings I am working on, and will post pics of when I am done.
