How can I get this distressed look on the vanity?

The Shabby Nest
According to the Lettered Cottage website, this particular vanity was purchases as is. However, there are some great blogs out there that deal with refinishing furniture and can offer some good tutorials on such. Try checking out Miss Mustard Seed blog or The Perfectly Imperfect blog. Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sailboats have great lines and I love how they look in simple rooms. In this room, the clean lines of the little boat are a great contrast with the elegant mirror.
Model boats and cottage furniture can give your guests that beach getaway sensation.

Shells are right at home within the nautical style of A Lettered Cottage.
