I found this generic vanity set on CL a while back. The price was right so I took it home. Did you ever go check out a CL find and then decide not to buy? I don't know maybe it's the sucker in me but I feel like once I've taken the ride and I meet the person happily waiting for me to make the purchase, it's like the deal has been sealed whether I want it or not. Please tell me, I am not the only CL sucker out there.

I pulled out my BM paint swatch book. Love this thing especially when you want to mix your own paint concoction. I wanted a a turquoise color but more on the green side. I chose colors close to what I was going for and mixed them into the white. Simple and will save you both a trip out and money buying custom colors.
|Yup, I've got tons of paint from my decorative painting days.|
I changed out the fabric on the stool. Fairly easy if you use the old fabric as your template and a staple gun.
Here it is painted, distressed and glazed. Not lookin' so generic anymore. I saw the perfect knob on hobbylobby.com....white ceramic with touches of black. Sadly there aren't any here in Jersey. Thinkin' about ordering it but for now the glass knob I had on hand will have to do.
|I used spray adhesive to line the drawer with the same fabric as the cushion. I am telling you, once you try this your bottle of mod podge will be collecting dust in the corner.|
Happy Christmas to all my blogging buddies!
