Something about this custom-painted vanity makes me hear that Meghan Trainor song “Me Too”!

Do you know this song??  If not…. you need to look it up and LISTEN!  It’s a super sassy, feel-good song that makes you want to dance in front of a mirror!

……. “if I was you, I’d wanna be me too”….just a catchy little phrase.

This vanity did not start out with such confidence.

It was dank, dreary and droopy…. wah… wah…

I saw the 8 long spindly legs as rather “sexay”…. and I wanted to play them up!  I didn’t want it to be just ANOTHER painted vanity!  I wanted a show stopper…. a gaudy… almost tacky (almost is a key word here)…. show stopper! I LOVE the brand Consuela…. and I own more of their bags than I care to admit.  They are sassy…. gaudy…. and usually over the top.  I chose one of my own Consuela bags as a guide for this piece!   So without a real plan…. I just started laying down paint….starting with those legs!

The very first thing I did was to cover those legs in a soft buttery paint called Rebel Yellow by Dixie Belle.  This served as a nice back drop for my oversized leopard print.

In the photo below you see the bag that inspired me to add the leopard and polk-a-dots!  I ADORE POLK – A -DOTS!  It’s as if I never out grew them!!!  Anyone else???

So let us talk about those words…..

Who wouldn’t want an original custom painted vanity with those words to greet them every morning?

I know I’m not going to hear them from anyone else in my house….. I may as well provide them for myself right??

The large Consuela bag inspired me to add the crazy colors of purple (Amethyst), hot pink (Peony) and coral (Flamingo).  The top right and left of this piece are painted in a the beautiful blue of a Tiffany box… and this paint is actually called Mermaid Tail.  As for the little roses….. I went full out traditional Honky Tonk Red and Tree Frog Green.

I used my favorite Guilding Wax in Gold to embellish the detailed carvings.

You may wonder how I came up with the angled design on the drawer fronts…. and I really can’t tell you! I would just stand back and stare at this piece…. wait for a vision… and then go for it!  I did not make one move that I questioned… or had to redo!  I went with my gut and enjoyed every minute of it!

I couldn’t let this painted vanity go without adding the black and white checkered pattern.  If you have followed me for any length of time you have probably noticed that I love black and white.  There is always a way to work it into a design….. and is often a very good idea.  I may use it in stripes, harlequin or checks.  It really finishes a piece with a bang!

So here she is…. she looks good…. and she knows it!!! (cue the Meghan Trainor song)

Let this before/after comparison below sink in for just a minute!

Its a lot to take in….I know!  LOL!

It’s not for the faint at heart….. it’s for the confident, quirky, fly by the seat of your pants kinda woman!  I like to pretend I am that!  Even if it is just through my funkified, fancied-up painted vanity!

I hope she speaks to at least a small inner part of your soul!

    Thank you for consistently demonstrating the integrity of the true artist…you don’t allow conventional thinking to interfere with your vision, and the world is a much richer place as a result. This vanity expresses the joyfulness of spirit that we all yearn for, but so seldom experience. It’s a gift – thank you.
