A few antique pieces re-loved and new Jeanne d'Arc Hat Boxes.

I've been working on a few projects for my booth spaces.  
This antique 1940's vanity has great bones, but the old dark stain just wasn't what we modern day vintage lovers are looking for.  So, with the help of some Faux Real Mineral and chalk paint, in the color Grigio, I transformed this pretty girl.
This antique vanity now takes center stage...
 I distressed it and dry brushed some white to soften the finish.
It's in my shop space at Fancy Flea 2 waiting on a new home.

My next project was another 1940's antique wardrobe.  Again, it was the dark stain that was typical for furniture produced in that era.  I painted it with Faux Real Mineral and Chalk paint in the color Bella.  I used a dark wax to soften the color and distressed it in various places.  It's also in my shop space at Fancy Flea 2.
 Coming soon to my Etsy shop, Jeanne d'Arc Living Hat Boxes.  These hat boxes are custom made in Denmark and they are stunners!  Let me know if you'd like to pre-order because quantity is limited.
Okay, that's it for now.  Everyone have a lovely week.

Beautiful paint colors- I especially love the vanity. I have never tried this brand of paint. If I did not own stacks of hat boxes, I would certainly want a JDL one - fabulous.

The vanity is just like mine! and if I lived near you, I'd buy the wardrobe! You did a wonderful job on both pieces, Sissie!

Those furniture pieces look gorgeous!!!!! I would love that armoire in our bedroom. We have an Ikea one in there now and it's just too big for the space.
