Refinished Desk to Vanity!

I'm outnumbered. My husband and three little boys and all the boy things that go with them. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I need some serenity and some girl space just for me! So I'm in the process of claiming my bedroom as the girly zone!

The sweet chair in the previous post needs something cute to snuggle up with at night, and I need a place that isn't a teeny tiny rental house bathroom with no counter space to do my hair and makeup.

This little desk looks perfect to repurpose into my vanity!

It's cute and small

But this color isn't doing it for me.

And there's some water damage to the particle board.

Nothing a nice wide piece of trim can't cover!

I really need to get better at taking photos of the refinish process. But here's the finished result! Complete with a  nice large mirror that might be just a bit too big... 

Shazam!
I'd like the vanity up against the wall to the left, but the mirror is too tall. I'll come up with a solution and show you later. 

Chair says "Hey sexy, what's shakin'?"
Upcoming bedroom projects include painting that hideous yellow, replacing the light fixture with a ceiling fan, curtains, and some more furniture refinishing. Stay tuned!
