A Lovely Vanity…

   In the middle of my bedroom “re-do”, that is on hold until I pick out a new wall color, I came up with a fantastic idea for our master bathroom. We have a walk-in closet in our bathroom with lots and lots of storage, which is somewhat unnecessary for our little family of two. My idea is to remove a few of the shelves in the closet & put the vanity inside. I am so excited for this reveal! A makeup vanity in a closet.. My own little space to get ready everyday.. Can’t wait to show you! In the mean time, I found the perfect vanity, and by perfect I mean it fit in the closet.. nothing else was perfect about it.. until now….

This is the vanity that will be in the closet… I’ve fallen in love with this powder blue vanity. Here is the vanity before….
I had to fix the drawers, and there were a ton of little flaws in the wood that needed to be fixed, & it’s still not perfect, but I like things like that. I fell in love with the legs on this vanity… Other than the perfect size that’s why I chose this vanity.
To achieve this color I layered many different blues and greens. I am really happy with the final color, it’s exactly how I wanted it. A somewhat “Powdery Blue Green”. The color reminds me a little of Tiffany Blue, perfect for a girly vanity.
The mirror has a lot to be desired. Since this is an antique, the mirror has seen better days.
I decided to keep the original hardware. I felt it looked best & being painted the blue color they blend in nicely.
Hope you all enjoyed my Makeup vanity “makeover”.  & Thank You all for all the wonderful birthday wishes  this past friday. My weekend was wonderful, my amazing friends here in NC & all my friends and family back home in MI made my birthday wonderful even though the hubby was out of town. What have you been working on this weekend? Go link up your projects on Liz Marie Blog Facebook! I would love to see what you are working on… Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!
