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.

Isn’t it awesome?

She’s VERY meticulous with her pieces, if I’m “type A”, then she’s “AAA”.  You should feel how soft the finish it!  Can somebody say butta?

We dropped her off to our Shizzle Design booth at Not So Shabby in Holland, Michigan.  Check our availability page here for updates.
