The Vanity is Complete

Finally! It only took several months, but I finally finished the vanity project. Perhaps finished is a little misleading, though. You may notice in the picture the sides where the mirror comes down are a bit knicked. This was because after everything was painted, there wasn’t enough room for the mirror to come down, so we had to use a plane to narrow the area a bit. We still need to work on that some more, and then touch-up the paint… but for now, it is fine!

The stool was a clearance find from Target for $8. It doesn’t match perfectly, but I was hoping the continuation of the color and fabric would tie it together. Ideally, I would have liked the chair that came with the vanity but the person I purchased it from misplaced the chair. I am pretty happy with it… it’s much better than the black folding chair I was using before. I do have to turn it sideways before I can slide it underneath, but it has a handy storage compartment underneath which is currently holding nothing but air. The paint is not perfect either, but after spending so much time on it I just wanted to be done with it.
