Since the beginning of the year I have been trying to finish off the rooms in my house. I have been in this house for 5 years and realized that most of the rooms are kinda half decorated. So most of the posts on my blog are me trying to make my house a little more polished! When decorating, I like to use items around the house I already have to make a different look somewhere else. Repurposing something I already have into something new and unique that I will love for many more years to come.
So lately I have had my eye on my daughters vanity in her room, I know not good snatching from the kids, lol! But, I bought her a vintage metal vanity a year ago and never got around to painting it until now. So she was happy. I wanted a nice simple table for my entryway. I had a black table there there before and it just seemed to make the room darker than it already was with the paint choice I used (Benjamin Moore Kingsport Grey). So I robbed her of her dainty white vanity. I then cleaned up all the nail polish & make up that had accumulated all over it. (Hey she’s 10). Then I got some 150 sandpaper and got to work shabbin up the edges and making some nice holes in the paint. I really need to invest in a sander as it was tough sanding on a factory painted piece of furniture. So a little elbow grease later here are my results. Shabby Repurposed table.
So much lighter now at the front door. Super simple makeover and it didn’t cost me anything!
