Vanity and Dresser Set


Beautiful painted Antique Dresser and Vanity made by Basset painted in a Cinderella/Tiffany Blue. I was getting a little worried when I started painting since it was looking really sky blue but when I got the glaze on it turned out perfectly. I did a lot of distressing and glazing to bring out the gorgeous details of the furniture. Wood tops are stained a dark reddish brown --the color is Kona by Rustoleum. I can't say enough about how great this stain is. It soaks into the wood quickly and evenly. Both pieces are coated with a protective finish. I used Minwax satin polyurethane on the tops to protect the wood and Minwax Paste Wax on the paint. Quality Solid wood pieces with dove tail drawers and origional hardware. I am in love with the long legs on casters on this set.

Vanity measures 44 inches wide x 18 inches deep x 31 1/2 inches tall Mirror is removable and measures 40 inches tall
Dresser meaures 34 inches wide x 46 1/2 inches tall by 20 inches wide.
