my DIY make up table ..

TADA!!  here it is...I finally got around to doing a little photo shoot of it...
it was quite a labor of love...and really hard to keep it hidden in the workshop while I worked on it!



It started as an old vanity from the thrift store...I just used the legs and drawer with the skirt and added a new top...

 the top has a mirror base to it then a glass shelf where the trays slide under, making all her make-up clearly visible and easy to access!


 and I had alot of fun filling it up with all new make up and accessories...


 she was so shocked when she removed the paper I had draped all around it with a bow on top...I thought she was going to pass out! lol.... she made my Christmas when she said...
"this is every girls dream!"




 We had fun making these two jewelry boards with black burlap wrapped over simple foam board...
it was the perfect touch to the table in her room...



What do you think?? Every girls dream or was mom just trying to relive her teenage years?
lol.... okay...maybe I was just a little!


I'm thinking sign giveaway coming up next post...just a few days from now...
thinking Farmers Market sign to celebrate it's over 150 etsy hearts it's gotten!
woohoo!!
See you then!

Beautiful, Paula! I think it was a little of both! : ) What girl, no matter what age, can resist a vanity table. I love the way this looks ~ sparkly, glam and functional {although the sparkly and glam are always the best part!}.

Victoria said...

Oh, over 150 hearts on one of your signs...wow, that's a lot! But they're so lovely it's understandable:)

It is every girl's dream! Will you be my new mom?

You did a beautiful job!

My farmer's market sign is doing a tour of duty over my mantle while my BD and breakfast sign awaits a new spot in my foyer. You are EVERYWHERE in my house! :-)
