French Vanity in a new milk paint color!

I found this vanity that a lady was selling as a set. I've been on the lookout for one just like it so I could try out this new color called, "Gypsy Pink" from the Real Milk Paint Co.
I saw it on another vanity similar to this one and thought it looked gorgeous! 
 I did sand the top down completely. In other parts, I didn't so I used the bonding agent.

 I mod podged some fabric on the sides and painted the bottoms in "Radiant Orchid". 
 Yes, this really is the color! More like a fuchsia than pink. 
 I used a tung oil and paste wax to finish off the paint.
 I did a lot of coats. Probably should have sealed or primered the wood first. 
Know where I can find a matching stool???? lol 


  1. So gorgeous! I really like the extra touch of the mod podged fabric on the sides. Such a beautiful end result.

  2. Seriously, this piece is fabulous! I must find a piece to paint this color, it's just so beautiful! Hopefully I can find the paint locally...
