As a teenager I sat at this vanity bench to apply my electric blue eyeliner (on both upper and lower lids, of course). I rolled my hair with hot rollers and sprayed more hairspray than I care to remember. I contemplated my teenage life and tried to figure out the girl whose reflection stared back at me daily.
Years before my mother and aunt sat on the same vanity bench in a room they shared. Oh, how I would love to know all the secrets this little bench holds. It's a little wobbly and probably not as comfortable as it once was, but the memories are comfort enough.
Our vanity bench has had a good life and served the women of my family welll, but a little girl who has a tutu dust ruffle needs a little something more.
This was my first experience with spray paint . . . . but it won't be the last. I was able to transform this piece for around $10. The fabric was on some crazy super sale at Joanne's for $1.19, I splurged on the trim and spent $5.34 and the spray paint was $3.44.
I did this after the kids went to bed. Honestly, it took me longer to gather all the materials in one place than it did to complete it. I'm going to attempt a makeover on the vanity soon, but for now I'm very happy with how this turned out. I hope my little girl will be, too.
