Before/After Old time vanity

This image gives me a mixed feeling. This exact vintage dresser/vanity is something I see on craigslist ALL THE TIME( like the one above, is on my local craigslist, mostly for under $25, they are usually the original wood, and hideous, so seeing it all fresh in white makes me give it a new appreciation, although I doubt I'll go buy one. I do love a big mirror though...(image from Domino Mag)

  1. I actually have a vanity very similar to that one. Can I make a few suggestions? They usually are real wood with venear over them. I know mine was well cared for for the most part however the veneer is already buckling. Check out undersides, especially in the middle. Also, my chair had to be redone a million times because it keeps getting more and more wobbly.

  3. I love this look! Do you sand it first and then paint with what kind of paint? Ohhh and do you have advice on making wood look antiqued?
