We had this vanity dresser since I can remember. I don't really appreciate it that much then, and even let my brothers have it for years.
But I had my eye on this for a while (those details on the frame are sooo pretty). Thank goodness our house prettify project got me the chance to grab this for my selfish self.
The plan is to 1) put another drawer on the middle, 2) level the top, 3) replace the glass door, 4) paint, 5) replace the mirror, and 6) put new knobs
I don't take credit for the carpentry work, thank you carpenter for doing that for me. But I did spackled, sand, primed and painted this thing. I know that's the easy part, but still... I'm kinda proud you know.
Bought this faux glass knob (plastic, in short) at Ace hardware, and painted the vanity the same teal as my DIYed nightstand. (actually I painted this first then the nightstand after)
Here you'll see a little of what's going on in my room. (I have no choice, it's a big mirror!) Yes my room is done but it's still not complete. I'm sure you know what I mean. (room checklist: vanity stool, 2 lamps, another night stand, and a huge SO ON...)
You can also see how my not-sticking-with-the-moodboard curtain purchase came about. I don't hate it, but I'm NOT in love with it either. It's a pretty print, not just what I'm going for. I'll probably change it even though I told myself otherwise.
Back to the vanity, here's a side by side...
Oh by the way, the vanity is in the same room on both the before and the after photos.
Another "before and after" by itself don't you think?
Another oh by the way, can you spot Larry? :)
