Thanks to cousins Ella and Avery my grand daughter Clara Jane inherited their old vanity, or "banity" as she calls them.
I re-did it this morning in a shabby-chic style to go with her adorable, folk-artsy bedroom.
I wiped down the old piece, (lots of red lipstick smeared here and there) then Kilzed it. I painted it a Robin's Egg blue, then antiqued the finish with my trusty walnut stain, and gave it two coats of polyurethane so our little Diva's new shades of lip gloss can be wiped away with ease. I finished the stool with the same shade of blue and added a warm orange floral center with highlight to go with all the sweet birds and flowers that decorate her room.
All of Clara's princess gear will fit nicely in the big drawers...I started her out with a set of play pearls. Every Princess should have her own "banity."
The old vanity with a coat of Kilz started---great to cover all the lipstick stains and fingernail polish.
Princess Clara's refurbished vanity---let the beauty begin!
While I had the paint out, I gave these mini school chairs that I picked up for $5.00 a fresh coat of paint and a sunflower each too, of course---Skylar's going to put them out in her backyard for her mini's~perfect for toddlers.
