Thrift Store Vanity Makeover With Blue Metallic Paint

It’s Thrift Store Challenge time-my favorite! I gave my daughter’s drab and tired thrift store vanity a makeover with shimmering blue metallic paint and she loves it!
 
This is definitely my new favorite blue! You’ll see the gorgeous sheen in the photos below.
 
 

I received product from DecoArt used in this post, however all opinions and love for this paint is 100% mine. This post contains affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Please see my full disclosure here.

 

Thrift Store Vanity Makeover

Here Is The Before:

Here is the shimmer I was talking about. This is a new product from DecoArt called Matte Metallics in Sapphire and I’m in love!
 
I seriously have to make something mermaid with this color. It’s perfect for that!
 

One of my favorite brushes to use is around wax brush as it really gets in all the corners and holds the paint well.

 
 
Nothing like a before and after photo to really show the difference:

There was little to no prep work for this vanity. I just wiped it down and lightly sanded it. Then I gave it two coats of the gorgeous matte metallic paint letting it dry in between.

I do plan to change the knob out with a glass knob as I really think that will add to the elegance.

You can get the cool Mermaid makeup brushes from Amazon
here. My daughter absolutely loves them!

I hope you enjoyed this thrift store makeover and will check out the other projects linked below.
