Vanity Table Makeover

2 Hours
This was a $10 yard sale find that we gave a makeover too. My daughter wanted a vanity table that she could sit and get girly n pretty at and apply lip gloss and perfume before school. Also great for littler girls that want to play dress up with friends too. We had been searching and most were $150 for a new one.
This was a $10 Yard Sale find and we gave it a makeover
We're on a budget so we kept looking. We were out yard sale-ing and found this one priced at $20 and my husband talked them down to $10 since it was later in the day. It was in bad shape. It was cream with painted flowers and pretty beat up as you can see the before. When I showed L she was sooo excited.
My teen daughter has a purple n black room so we painted it black
We sanded it and with a little time and love transformed it into this great teen inspired Vanity table and stool. We printed out some black n white art work for the picture frames on the sides, she drew and A for her name on one and added a photo of our dog too.
To go with her room
For the stool the seat was easy to unscrew and I had the zebra fleece scrap from pillowcases I had made her so we just stapled it on and screwed it back on.
We added some printed art to the frames
It has been transformed to a cute vanity table that she uses daily and looks cute in her room. It is one of our top pinned makeovers on Pinterest too. She has fun and sometimes I see her boa draped over the edges too.
We added some scrap fleece for the bench
Last week we made a Lucite tray for it with chevron fabric so she had another option for perfumes (see that post). We all want to look pretty and feel girly right?? - Lots more on the blog, feel free to stop by. Have a great day, Lisa.
