I have to admit that I promised my hubby, my family, AND myself that no more furniture was to enter into my possession until I cleaned out my workshop. BUT…. (there’s always a but, right?) pieces just have a way of finding me and beckon me to purchase them. Is it my fault they’re feeling unloved? tsk. Enter in this vintage dressing table…
With a mirror of 42″ diameter, solid wood construction (it was heavy!), and a fab flair, this gorgeous piece wanted a new home. (This one is much like my painted lady
, zinc vanity
, and industrial vanity
My client lives in the southern part of the U.S. and wanted a showcase vintage dressing table for her room. She said red and we did RED!
My oldest daughter and I had fun staging this one!
Licorice Stick gloss red to be exact. Only minor sanding and a bit of veneer repair was needed as prep work.
Confession time: I am typically not your average electronic device user and put off owning a cell phone f.o.r.e.v.e.r. BUT… (there’s that but again!) I had to invest in one for my business sake and it has really made things easier. For instance, I went to purchase the fabric she requested and it wasn’t in stock. Took a picture of another very similar fabric and sent her the picture. It was either that fabric or wait 2 weeks to get the table. She responded in minutes and said, “go ahead!”. Whew. Normally, I would have driven a half hour home, corresponded in email, and then headed back to the store. Aaah…so much better.
I love the fabric I found because it adds that added punch of contrast to the vintage dressing table, don’t you think?!
Here’s a look at the befores and afters…
Isn’t it fun?! I love what I do and that my client fell in love with it.
If you’re interested in a custom piece, just send me an email or head to my shop a let me know what you’re looking for.
I’d love it if you would pin and share my vintage dressing table makeover.(because it’s fun!!)
