Avery's Vanity

I snagged up this vanity from Goodwill with Dawn in mind.  I knew she was moving and her daughter needed some new furniture, and sure enough, she wanted it.  Look how hideous is was, though!  

I nicknamed it "The Beast"  Because it was so hard to strip.  I don't usually have to strip things when I use chalk paint, but when there's peacock feathers decoupaged all over the place you do.  I would get so annoyed I'd work on something else for awhile and come back to it.  It had such potential though.  I forgot to take a picture of the inside after I finished, but I painted the inside grey.
 Here's the after:  I used Old White over Paris Grey.

It turned out so soft and feminine!
