Vanity Makeover

This is the vanity that my friend Toni and I found
at a garage sale for $10.00.  She wanted
it for her daughter's bedroom.  I told her
I would refinish it for her and have it done
by Grace's birthday!


I first sanded the vanity.  It had a pretty good shine on it that needed to come off!
I then used a primer on it.  I probably wouldn't have had to...but the piece was
old and you never know what kind of stain was used or if an oil based paint
was put on it.  When in doubt....prime!



I found these decals at the Flower and Craft Warehouse...
a craft store in our area.  The decals are new from Me and My Big Ideas.







Yesterday was Grace's birthday and I dropped her vanity off at her house.
Isn't she CUTE?!   She's so sweet....and like most
girls her age, she loves all things pink.  I was so anxious for her to see it.
And...I think she liked it!





I think the vanity looks awesome in her room against her pink wall!



My next project.....vanity's sister!
She was $10.00 too !
Another great find!

Wow Kerri! Again I am amazed. I would love to watch you work on a piece sometime. I have so many projects I'd like to work on, but I'm always a little unsure of how to go about it. Better yet, I'll just send all my unfinished projects over to you! :)

What an amazing job you did!
It looks so great and if Grace is anything like my older two, she will spend hours sitting there!:) The dresser is another great find! Are you doing that for Grace as well? Can't wait to see your next project.
Enjoy the day

That turned out great! I KNOW that is a lot of work. What a good friend you are. My night stand project won't be very fancy. It's just going to be black. Boring.
