I bought this set unfinished several years ago and painted it up for my little sweetie. She is now making noises about wanting a more mature room, so it may go in the attic soon. Sad

Since I removed all the trinkets on the surface to do some cleaning this morning, I thought I'd share it for posterity before it is retired. I am not really artistic at all, but I was happiest with the bench and the painting around the mirror. Most important, she used it lots and still uses it when she thinks no one is looking.

Sorry the photos are a little dark and shadowy. The family camera is off on a trip, so I used my cell.

Awww, that's darling. I love that she still uses it when she thinks no one is looking. How sad that it will be retired.

It's so adorable! I've always wanted a vanity but I never had room for one, or the money. I think they are wonderful. You did an awesome paint job!

It's very cute. You might suggest to your daughter that you could "update" it by repainting it white, possibly with a little antique or crackle effects to give it a "shabby chic" look . . . or else save it for future grandbabies Wink
