Upcycled Vanity

I am finally back in my groove in doing projects after taking a month off. I’ve been working overtime trying to setup and maintain my blog that I needed a small break. I did not know how much I would miss doing projects until I finished my little monsters desk.

 

I found this little girls vanity by the dumpster about two months ago. We find a lot of goodies every time people are moving. I kept trying to figure out what to do with the vanity, a lot of ideas kept coming to mind but nothing seemed right. Until my little monster kept getting into my desk and my hubby’s desk every time we were not around. The best way to use the vanity was to make a cute little desk for my cutie.

The first thing I did was remove the mirror which I will use for something else later. Then I had the hubby cut the legs to were it would be comfortable to be used by my little monster.

After sanding I painted the desk blue and covered the inside of the drawers with a cute fabric with spaceships on them. I used modge podge on the drawers to glue the fabric. I also changed out the hardware to make it more modern.

We place his desk in the middle of my hubby’s and my desk so we can watch him play while we are both working own our projects. He loves to play with the drawers and his blocks. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Till later!
