A Makeup Vanity Transformation Using Chalk Paints

Refinish your old vanity into something elegant and beautiful easily!  A few years ago, I bought a makeup vanity from Raymour & Flanigan. It’s one of my favorite furniture stores in this area. After much abuse from being careless and having a makeup obsession, I decided to give it a makeover!

I’ve refinished a few pieces of furniture before but never used chalk paints on any of them. You can see them here and here. I was excited to see what all the chalk paint hype was all about and figured my battered vanity would be a great place to start.

This was the mess that was my lovely vanity. I am so thrilled the way it turned out and I saved loads of money not having to replace it!

You can easily freehand a lot of the detail work too when you use Chalk Paints. It really makes refinishing so easy!

I wanted to add something colorful and fun to the top so I decided to use stenciling. It worked out perfectly!

These are the star decals I used. They made such an amazingly different and really added a designer look to my vanity!

I thought the bench would be nice in a two-tone which blended all the color elements together nicely.
