I'm finally posting again! Since I've been on a long vaca, thanx to this nasty sinus infection & freakish cold weather, I've been slow to post. But I'm back now! So down to business already.
Remember this image I posted before?
It was my inspiration pic for changing this vanity. I pulled it out of my garage. It used to be in my little girl's room before we moved. Due to lack of room it got shafted.
Damn cheap tape screwed me. Actually I screwed myself. I didn't smooth the tape down again after letting it sit so long. But definitely never use cheap painters tape. It left blue sticky residue on my stool :o( See how clean cut the stripe is at first? Then came the nastiness. Ughh.
How pretty right? Uhm not so much. I though maybe later I would go back and clean it up some. But I figured oh well, lesson learned. NO CHEAP PAINTERS TAPE. EVER!
Though I tell you what. From faaaaar away you can't tell. And that makes me happy.
I ordered a knob ($1) off of eBay to go on the vanity. I'm just twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to come in now. I also bought the ring pull knobs (set of 20 for $15.99 after shipping) for my desk and dresser.
As you can see I wasn't happy with a bald faced drawer. I painted some little leaves that looked like the leaves on the trifold mirror. Now I'm a happy girl again. Only thing left to do is poly-wipe this baby. Glossy or satin? I'm thinking glossy! I'm waiting until I finish my desk and dresser to decide on glossy or not. But glossy is where my heart is right now.
Here is a couple other views. I think it fits perfect with my room.
