I got this waterfall vanity a few weeks ago, and spent a lot of time searching Pinterest for ideas. These are pretty easy to find, but not so easy to find in good condition. This one had been spray-painted black who knows how long ago.
The veneer itself was in pretty bad shape. And the mirror has some de-silvering issues in places as well, but I figure these are more useful in a girl’s room, and hopefully whoever she is, she won’t care about such things. (She’ll care about pretty knobs, right?)
I could’ve just gone all white and been done with it. That was tempting, but I still have that gleam in my eye and that newbie desire to make everything special. So, this lovely harlequin dresser from Art is Beauty became my inspiration. I tried this on a little plant stand for myself a while back, and it seemed like a great way to add pizazz. But man, did it take a long time!
Here’s the result!
Photographing mirrors makes for a fun time!
She’s still a little beat up, but so much prettier. She’ll be off to Belmont in the mornin’! (Or not – turns out there’s a festival in Belmont this weekend, and the whole downtown is blocked off!)
