The wood siding was dry brushed with General Finishes Snow White and the grey area of the bookshelf was sealed with 2 coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Flat.

This ole gal was so sad and missing a mirror. With lots of luck one was found and now "Isn't  she Lovely"❤The entire thing was cleaned and old finish sanded off the top. Vanity and mirror painted in General Finishes Driftwood then white washed in in pure white and wiped off but left in crevices. Then the bling begins!!! Foil adhesive applied randomly on edges, legs and designs so that the silver leaf looks like it is peeling off. Amazing!!!!

Drawers lined in gray velvet  , a surprise...
