Vanity makeover

{BEFORE}
So from these raggedy old legs came this pretty little feature , I especially love taking what once was an eye sore and for very little money ~$3~ in fact and turning it into a feature. {AFTER}



I am now moving onto the tub skirt , what will it cost ~$20 or $30~ your guess is as good as mine , I will try to do it for as little as possible , I love a good challenge.



I am also thinking of a soft greyish linen shower curtain , wouldn't that be pretty and maybe a band of blue linen on the bottom.

A little at a time.





I should admit , this is not completely finished I still need to fill gaps with caulk and finish paint it .
I will maybe put in a shelf for a couple of baskets or perhaps a nice round basket for laundry ?? we will see.

Ok, I have to ask...what's in the tinfoil? pizza? Yumm :) (Oh yah, the vanity looks great - I get distracted by the thought of pizza)

the tin foil was not pizza sorry , no snacks while doing projects , I used it to wrap my brush from one use to another so I wouldn't have to wash it , usually I use saran wrap it works much better .

Awesome idea! I wish I had thought of this in our old house because I had a vanity just like that and it really makes it look special!

Hi there, well it took me so long to re-find your blog, but I am glad I did!! My old blog crashed and died a nasty death but I do hope you will stop by my new one at some point! Not sure if I got to mention that I saw you on t.v. thought you did a great job and well of course your house looked wonderful!!

Susan said...

it looks great....but i must admit i miss the shabby chic on them. :( i loved that pink and the chippy paint! but they look absolutely fabulous now!

SweDaisy said...

Great legs! LOL
They really do look like they were always there. I like the idea of a laundry basket. Very practicle. Quick question, I know you said you got the round mirrors from Superstore, do you remember when? They are exactly what I have been looking for to go above my bed. I need three but can't seem to find any.

Take care,
Lisa

I love your bathroom! I need to do some sprucing up in my master bath too.

On another note, I am hosting a Bloggy Cookie Exchange on my blog, www.cakescraps.wordpress.com , and I'd love it if you'd join in! Everyone could use new recipes for the holidays, right?

Norma said...

how do you do that? the thought of doing anything like this myself sends shivers down my spine. massive fear of failure anxiety!

That is a clever little vanity space, it looks custom now.
