I have a new Vanity!!!
Ok, like most things I own it isn’t “new”, just new to me. I received this desk as a hand me down gift from Mr. Smith’s aunt.
The sewing machine from it still works by the way.
I got it sanded this spring but work stopped as soon as the heat hit and we were off running around the country.
I finally got around to working on it in earnest these past couple of weeks.
The verticals supports and panels weren’t sanding out as well as I liked so I opted to paint them.
The top and the drawer fronts however were a glorious grain so I decided to stain them as close as possible to my bedroom furniture.
We (my mother and I) lined the drawers with contact paper to protect them from the cosmetics that will go inside.
Beemer helped too
The hardware that was in the desk to begin with matched our furniture pretty well so I just cleaned it up and reattached it.
Before I set up my inordinate amount of makeup on the desk I placed a plastic sheet (it’s actually from a poster frame) on the desk to prevent makeup getting embedded in the wood grain.
I finally got to take all of my makeup out of bins and put it in real drawers in a proper vanity.
And yes that is a mechanics stool.
