Vintage Vanity in "Old Ochre"

I just finished working on a vintage vanity. The mirror was not with this piece when I got it but she is full of character and charm all the same. It could easily work as a little desk or a pretty mirror could be hung with it to maintain the use of a vanity.

I painted this piece using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I went with the color "Old Ochre". I really like this warm neutral color. The hardware got a coat of "Pure White" ASCP.

 Since I forgot to snap a before picture...
We can jump right to the after.

This desk will be going to the  Lucky Star Market with me. (Click on that link if you want more info about that.) I've mentioned before that "Old Ochre" looks great paired with a crisp, clean white. I also think that it mixes well with blues and greys. I added a few pops of blue in the accents and loved it.

Lots of potential for this pretty one...
