09 Nov Mississippi Mud Vanity Re-purposed out an Old Sewing Cabinet
My sister came across an old sewing machine cabinet a while back and immediately fell in love with it.
Being the left-handed seamstress that she is, she appreciated the fact that it opened up double wide so you have two sides for your fabric.
Because she’s all set up in the upholstery department, she thought it would be cool to transform this piece creating more of a vanity by combining it with a vintage oval mirror and chair that she had. It’s hung REALLY high in the store because that’s where the studs were in our booth and the mirror is quite heavy.
She chose CeCe Caldwell’s Mississippi Mud as her colors of choice for this piece and worked her magic on it.
The edges were distressed to bring out the beautiful shape of it, then all the paint was sealed with a generous coat of Clear Wax.
After the clear, she went over the drawers in dark aging wax to add a little contrast. No, that’s not two different colors, it’s just how much the color changes when you leave the aging wax on for two minutes.
Reminder ~ Not So Shabby has Relocated. Our new store is at 2975 West Shore Drive Holland just East of US 31 and North of Felch.
Cathy and I will be there Friday night to meet you and have made up some pretty neat CeCe Caldwell’s Gift Baskets ranging from the….
We’ll also have a limited supply of round wax brushes for sale
both in 1-1/2″ and 2″ sizes
along with all the other standard CeCe Caldwell’s products.
Have a wonderful weekend! I know there’s been many hard time endured by close friends and I’m praying for each and every one of you!!!
