OK, here I go again with my latest revamped project.

I found this vintage vanity set in a charity shop two years ago
and I had planned ever since to revamp it but I haven't really
got around to it until now.
I was meant to use pictures of Marilyn Monroe but she didn't
really do it for me, she's too glamorous and, believe it or
not, plain for this project.
So I used my old faithful Bettie Page and it turned out to be even
more sexy and kitschy than I first thought.

This project was very easy.
I just removed the green plastic backsides and added the two
laminated pictures of Bettie.
(The picture was scanned from the book Bettie Page -
The life of a pin-up legend, by Karen Essex and James L. Swanson,
page number 124.)

The result:


This is how it looked before the makeover:

Thank you darling!  Smiley

I know, I'm terrible...
But in this case Bettie worked better than Marilyn.
