You're So Vain/New Painted Vanitiy Table

Our new vanities are a bit too tall for putting on makeup.

The chair was continually in the way.

I ended up doing my makeup with stuff perched on the edge of the granite. It wasn't a great situation. 

A few weeks ago I finally got serious about a solution. 

I found this dressing table at a local antique mall and 
it was a pretty good match for our existing furniture but 

I wanted something I could paint. 
Check out what I've been pinning here.

A two toned effect ties it all together. 

 This isn't the mirror that came with the vanity. This one mimics the lines on the headboard. It's a better match for the room.

The little junky dresser got a coat of paint as well. 

This little dresser was a $40.00 flea market find when I was fresh out of college. It's been moved around this house more times than I can say.  
 The white paint has made me fall in love with it all over again.

Not sure if I like the details on the drawer fronts or not. 

 I can sit, spread stuff out and then stash it away in drawers when I'm done.   
I love it.

  3. A great solution! I do love the detail on the drawers!

  4. I love your new makeup table. It's beautiful.

  5. Your new vanity turned out lovely - really love the wood top with painted bottom. I had to smile when I saw your makeup mirror, I have one exactly like it, have had it for a zillion years, & still use it daily - it's amazing that the bulbs have never blown out.
