Vanity Makeover

I've been drooling for months over all these beautiful repurposed vanities made out of vintage furniture. I was trying to find the best fit for my tiny half bath. Then I ran across an adorable Sewing cabinet on Pinterest. I thought a sewing cabinet would be small enough for my tiny space.  I shared an inspiration picture on my Facebook page and a sweet lady shared that she had one for sale! Thank you Mariah!!

 

 

I just loved this Vanity made from a Vintage Sewing cabinet from : This Old House via Pinterest.   Here is the before picture of the Sewing Cabinet that I purchased,

I had it for over a year and I actually almost sold it ,as I had given up on finding the time to repurpose it, (Gasp) So glad my husband talked me into keeping it.   I decided since my new wall color was Benjamin Moore -Gray Owl, that I want to use a dark gray. Also being a high traffic area I knew Amy Howard One Step paint would be perfect. So I chose "A Good Man Is Hard To Find". One of my favorite colors!

I had to have some storage so I decided a large basket could do the trick

Here is one last inspiration Picture I found on Min Lilla Veranda Blog Via Pinterest. If you like the authenic chippy look, you may even want to consider Milk Paint over Chalk Paint for your furniture. We have both at the shop and will be glad to explain the difference. We can also help you choose the perfect color for your project.
