I picked up this old vanity from an estate dealer.... It was a mess! The handles were broken, it was beyond filthy, and gouged.
I stripped it, filled in the holes, sanded it, stained it, added legs and lights. Also I redid the broken celluloid handle parts with some polymer clay

Well I would never have thought of using an old vanity this way, but it looks great, and very useful.
