i just recently moved from a 1 bedroom house to a 4 bedroom house..so what do i do?! get more stuff of course! my great aunt asked me to come over and help her move some things out of the basement to be thrown away..one thing caught my eye. a vanity! i've always wanted one. my great aunt said i could have it because the family members that were living with her ruined it.

i gladly hauled it back to my house, a different state.
this is what the vanity looked like when i got it



the mirror had marker, stickers,,even candy stuck on it!


with a little help from my boyfriend. the vanity transformed into this!





it comes with a little stool but i havent even started on it
and hopefully eventually ill get new handles for the drawers

What a difference! I love the little touches of color, and the 'Atomic Pin up' detail. Great job!
