A Newish Vanity

I have been kinda MIA for a bit.  Why?  Well I have been making like  "Dexter" and plastic wrapping my closet/laundry room.  Kinda like his kill room but for other intentions.  Soon I will post about it...not the killing of course, just the building part of it. And yes, flies have died in the making of this room!
  Anyways, back to the vanity!
It's just paint and legs but here she is....
BEFORE

This came from my Grandma  :)

The top has seen better days.

A secret compartment....well it used to be a secret.

A home for dust.


DURING








A nut is epoxied into the hole and left to set.

AFTER

I decided I wanted it counter height so I added legs.  I screwed them in to  the epoxied nuts.

I used some fantastic wallpaper I scored from Lowes!  Got it for 2 bucks!


Just in case I ever inherit the Queens Crown Jewels.  Don't wanna leave anything to chance;  a lovely red velvet home for them!  And yep, that's real "belvet"   For my sister.




I haven't staged this piece.  It will be in the exact place that it is, except the "Dexter" wrap will be gone, the floor will be finished and maybe, just maybe there will be baseboard.  But that's another episode, so stay tuned for the new season starting this fall.    That means the floor will hopefully get done in the fall....baseboard to follow.  But I will share what's going on above the floor very soon!!!
Cheers.
