  1. I am going to paint my bathroom vanities this year too! Same reason! I am thinking of Old White with dark wax. I'm taking a painting class tonight, excited to learn some new things and gain confidence to tackle bigger projects!

    1. old white is my favorite color. i use it often!
      make **sure** you mix the dark wax with the clear before applying it... the dark is dark. i mean, dark. i'd start with a 3 to 1 ratio of clear and dark respectively. so, 3T clear to 1T dark..if not less dark cuz you can always add TO but removing after it's applied isn't as easy. :)

    1. the vanity's base paint is done.. whew!
      now comes a bit of decorative paint, very
      understated. just enough. hoping for a steady hand.
