A couple of weeks ago, I shared on 2nd Time Around some of the painted furniture that some of the vendors at the antique mall had painted. I wanted to try painting a piece, but was not sure of my ability to do a good job and sell the piece. I’ve painted furniture for myself, but when you are painting to sell you want it to be perfect.
So, one day I was at a local thrift store, and saw this cute little vanity. Sorry I don’t have before pictures, but I’ll do my best to describe it. The vanity was solid wood, pine, and had yellow flowers stenciled on it.
I chose black for my first project. I distressed the edges just a little with sand paper. I was not really pleased with the paint finish-I wanted it to be perfect- but decided to sell it as is. I took it to my booth, and had an offer on it the first day! I accepted her offer, and the piece has been sold!
So, now I’m going to have to look for another small piece to paint! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by!
