Nothing gets me more excited than when Fall is in full effect and I get to start going dark with everything. When my sweet friend and beauty Blogger Chelsie Birks approached me about decorating her new downtown Dallas high rise apartment, I was thrilled because I knew two things, she loves anything bold, black and brass. This was a perfect client fit for me, of course.
It's the thrill of taking something old and making it new again that really gets me going. When she showed me her grandmothers antique vanity as a possible piece for her space I knew instantly that we HAD to use it, but she needed a new look and style.
This was the perfect time for me to take part in Valspar's Rehab Project. Since they are deeply rooted in color, I wanted to try out their new line of furniture paint in one of my favorite Valspar colors, Old Kettle Black.
Chelsie wouldn't have been able to use the vanity in the original condition, as it was a little rough around the edges. The paint glided on with ease & because its specifically made for furniture makeovers, it came out exactly how I wanted. It's a soft off black color and in the matte finish came out to look perfectly finished. With a hint of gold spray paint on the hardware, now this beauty has been given life all over again. Now, Chelsie can put her on make up in ultra glam style, just like her grandmother did.
It makes the perfect backdrop for all her fabulous shoes.
I am a huge believer in self love especially in the home. This vanity is the perfect example of a place to create a morning routine for yourself. Put on your favorite robe, light a beautiful candle, put on your prettiest perfume, sip your coffee and get yourself ready to start your day. Your home is a reflection of your soul, so breathe some new life into your soul. . .
