French Style Hollywood Glam Style!

Another French provincial....Really??? Yeah I know. I'm pretty darn sick of doing
them myself! But I got such a killer deal on this one I figured what the hay. 
So,,,,Your typical '70's style....

It was part wood and part MDF laminate.
I gave everything a light sanding and used a wood sealer. I wanted the paint to stick! I used
Ben Moore's satin paint, not chalk paint this time. No distressing on this one. 
For the silver I used Martha Stewarts metallic paint. She has many shades and the paint is great! 
I used the middle color on the bottom of the dresser. "Thundercloud". The rest were used on the mirror
you will see below. 

I saw another blogger do one in white and dip the bottom in gold. I thought I would try black

and metallic silver!  And use my mosaic skills! 
 I had left over mirror from another project. Had just enough to do both of the doors. I had given the door one coat of black and waited until I was through grouting (below) to do the second coat.
I used unsanded charcoal grout and applied with a rubber spatula thingy. 
 I had to spice up the insides!
 The drawer fronts got some fabric applied with Mod Podge underneath and then a watered down version on the top.  Let dry and sand off the excess.  Very easy!
Some orange paint on the inside doors gives a nice jolt of color!
I found that solid wood frame on CL and re-did it in silver. I just have to find a mirror to fit inside. 
I love it! And it goes great w/the dresser!!! 
But, I'm not keeping it  :( 

This baby is for sale!!!
