Louis Blue Vanity $225

I finally tried a new chalk paint color, Louis Blue.  It is a very purplish blue but I like it.  This vanity had a few issues.  The top had separated from the base so the previous owners put 3 very large nails in the top.  I removed those & filled the holes.  There is also a crack in the center but it is still very sturdy despite that.  I decided not to fill the crack with wood filler, I think it adds to the charm of the piece.
Here are the only 2 before pictures I have.  I know I took some of the front but I guess they were eaten by my camera :(



Here it is after.  Unfortunately (or fortunately) my daughter can't manage to squeeze this into her bedroom so I am selling it.  She would keep almost every piece if I let her!  It measures 42"W x 17"D x 67"H with 16"W leg opening.  $225

  2. That looks really good! I've never even tried chalk paint before but hope to someday. I have their paint chart and really liked that shade of blue on the chart. It's nice to see what it looks like on a piece of furniture now. I'm popping over from the Met Monday party!
