Traditional Vanity Set With Mirror

Vanity set with mirror – If you wish you could go through your morning beauty ritual sitting at a vintage vanity; you don’t have to spend your days scouring the yard sales and antique shops. Instead, you can make your own vanity that looks authentic worn. All you need to turn your current vanity into a faux vintage is a bit of hardware and a propensity for destruction. With these, you will be able to knock down and build your time pristine vanity in a ridden, shabby chic dream.


Look up your furniture. Use your originality to create notches, dents, cuts and abrasions that naturally accumulate on wooden furniture over time. For example, whip your vanity set with mirror with a chain, smack it with a hammer or scrape it with some old keys. Rough up vanity with a power grinder. Your grinding need not be exact; Inaccuracy, in fact, is the key to giving it a worn look. Sand away any lacquer and most of the paint, and while you are still on, cross some areas with a coarse abrasive paper by pressing hard with the power grinder. This does not only endure the color, but the wood itself.

Paint furniture. Again, you don’t have to be exactly in your painting, especially since you will paint over it when it dries. Don’t worry about angles and twists. After the furniture dries, paint it again with a contrasting color. For example, if you painted blue before, paint white this time. Buff the paint with steel wool to expose the different layers. This gives your vanity set with mirror the look of having been painted, repainted and worn down over the years.
