French Gray Vanity

Found this on CL and happily the woman selling it was only 15 minutes from me. Love the legs and scalloped edges. I used ASCP in Paris Gray, distressed it and glazed in charcoal. I'll tell ya, I am loving not priming or sanding.

It had a cracked leg issue. I used these clamps and they are amazing for legs, mitered edges, anywhere there's a kooky angle.
The clamp is called Maestro and I love the new detail sander I got for Christmas too....Genesis. Perfect for getting into routered edges.

Sadly it's not real wood but it is still pretty.







How's that for a little picture over load??

Happy little side note...I listed this in my Etsy shop and it sold in a few hours... more room in the garage means guilt free CL pursuing in the AM!

Linking up here...

It turned out so gorgeous! I did an exact one a long time ago, but I painted it hot pink and added zebra fabric inside. Yours is lovely!
