From Rough Vanity to Sweet Nightstands

I have had many projects planned and with my recent push to get the garage cleared out, I’ve finally gotten some long overdue furniture projects completed. And took the time to take the necessary photos as well.

This piece I picked up a while back at a thrift store. I had gotten the two sections separated and that’s where it stayed for quite a few months. I actually was able to get a special boost from completing the outdoor bench from school desk chairs, as it provided me with the two additional legs that I needed for each cabinet.

Once I attached the legs, I got a whole new energy to complete the project. Taking a queue from the existing appliques, I glued appliques to the drawer fronts – initially to hide the previous hardware holes – and found the perfect glass knobs.

I then did a quick sanding of both cabinets and legs and launched into the priming and painting. I used a beautiful shade of off-white, more like a creamy vanilla color. With a couple of coats, the cabinets had a beautiful finish, but something was missing.

I had this unique spray paint leftover from working on the carousel horse (soon to be showcased) that had a glimmer of pearl glitter and using that over-sprayed both cabinets. It was just the trick. I attached the knobs and the piece was set.

I am thinking that this would be a perfect compliment to any little girl’s room, couldn’t you just imagine these flanking a big canopy bed?
