Old World Drexel Heritage Vanity/Desk

I couldn't finish this piece of furniture fast enough I was SO excited about it! It's a solid wood Drexel Heritage Vanity Antique that was in pretty bad shape and needed some love. I often (like daily!) meander over to European Paint Finishes because EVERY single piece of their furniture is A.MAZ.ING - and totally inspiring.  When I found this vanity, I immediately thought of this desk they posted awhile back - GORGEOUS. I was inspired to try something similar, and entered new territory - Old World Style.  Here's what I came up with!

Without mirror

With mirror.

You'll have to bear with me as I took A LOT of pictures.
Here are some close-ups.

Contact me for arrangements.

Original hardware with patina.
Beautiful scalloped detail carving around the desktop.
Beautiful ornate decals. Complete solid wood throughout.
Model numbers on the back of each seperate piece.

Dimensions are 48" long x 18.5" deep x 30" high to desktop
                                                                            x 73" high to the top of the mirror.

Have you ever tried to take a picture of a dresser or vanity with a mirror?
It's hard! :-)

Well...remember the before I posted awhile back:

Once again, I'd love to keep her.


Enjoy your weekend,
and head over to enter the GIVEAWAY with Kayla J Photography!!!
