HOW TO MAKE A FRENCH VANITY




The beginning of my week started with rolling an art deco vanity into my workroom.







The plan was to take it apart and make a pair of nightstands.
 I even took some photos of different angles to show you how
 I was going to do it, thus this sideways before photo.
I hummed and hawed for a while before committing to the
 deconstructions because I really liked the pair of drawers in
 the middle. It's an unusual characteristic of these pieces.





I had the right size legs to make it tall enough to sit at and I
 could reused the wood that was originally on the bottom to
 make new back legs, so I choose to save it. Below, you can
 see the faded area where I stole the wood from to make the back leg.



She's been painted in a creamy white and soft pink. I have a
 very specific recipe for the pink if you want to use it. I started
 with a quarter can of ASCP Old White, a single drop of
 Emperor's Silk, and 3 drops of Coco. ASCP are very strongly
 pigmented especially the red so be cautious.
