You may or may not remember Eloise the vanity. Let me refresh your memory.

Not only did Eloise sell, but there were bidding wars! And we’ve since had requests to have a vanity “re-finished” exactly the same as Eloise. My mom (who else?!) snatched up this little vanity at the thrift store, and thought we could work some magic on it. We sent the client the ‘before’ picture, she liked it… and we got busy with our aqua paint and glaze!! Here’s the before:

And another piece of furniture out of the garage!
