So excited to share with you my latest furniture makeover (just finished it this week!!), thanks to DecoArt's GORGEOUS new AmericanaDECOR Metallic paint. I'm obsessed. For a little background - this vanity was given to my mom from her parents as a Christmas present when she was in 7th grade (!!!), so the fact that she gave it to me means so much! Not only is it loaded with sentimental value, but I seriously love everything about it! I have a weak spot for swirly furniture, and the fact that it is so little makes it fit perfectly between the two windows in our bedroom. And I love it even more with it's fresh finish!
Here's how it looked before the Metallics makeover!
It's obviously adorable, but needed a little lift. Here's how it turned out after a couple fresh coats of paint & a new fabric courtesy of Calico in Short Pump, VA (site here).
SO CUTE RIGHT?! Need more convincing on why you should paint your next piece of furniture with DecoArt's AmericanaDECOR Metallics? How about the fact that it's super easy and dries really really fast?? Check out these
3 Simple Steps to Your Dream Vanity Table
using DecoArt paints and some fresh fabric! Let's start with your supply list:
Step 1 - Mix Your Paint
Stir it, shake it, just make sure there's no dark splotches of pigment, you want a nice even coat!
Step 2 - Paint your Vanity
No sanding required, just make sure the surface is clean. All you'll need is a very small dose of patience while the paint dries between coats. Since I am one of the most impatient humans on the planet, I was thrilled with how quickly it dried! Roughly three coats later and viola!

Step 3 - Paint your Glass
The glass was the only part of the vanity that really showed any wear. But it was super easy to update!
AmericanaDECOR Chalky Finish paint to the rescue!
I'm a fan of the whole "shabby chic" look, so I used my 2" brush and just swooped my the paint around to look like little waves. Ben gave me a huge compliment when he saw it for the first time, saying that it looked to him like it was a thin sheet of marble! Woohoo!
And you're done! Simple right? Once your paints are dry, you can always switch out the fabric on your cushion for an easy update!
