Sea Glass Aqua Vanity

HELP ME! OK, that said as I sit here fooling around on a Friday night w/ my blog layout. Yours all look so nice and mine is lacking. I finally figured out the collage thing but how do I make them smaller....not so in your face. They are so in your face, you know what I mean???

This was a  great CL find. I picked up this and a 1930's dresser w/ tiara mirror. Somehow we managed to squeeze all of the pieces into my Pilot. It wasn't easy but somehow we did it!

Placing the mirror into the vanity nearly killed me. I can't believe how heavy this thing is. I finally got wise and removed the hinges then placed the center piece in and reattached the sides.

I painted it a pretty shade of aqua that I mixed up from some oops paint then glazed it in charcoal to tone it down.

I listed it in my Etsy shop and hope it moves quickly unlike the buffet that you can see in the first pic that has long overstayed its welcome.

What a beautiful vanity in a great color! And that mirror is awesome! It looks really really heavy! Hope you'll come by and share at our Be Inspied party every Tuesday!

You have great sized pictures. Bigger is better. Love the colour on your vanity.

I am playing around with my blog layout as well. I wish I had kept the name of the sites that I read about how to make those changes but they were lost when my laptop was stolen. When I want to make a change I usually google something like "how to make a blog header with Photoshop". I hope that helps.

Oh, I almost forgot, love the vanity.

Love your vanity.....the aqua color is so soft and feminine.

And, your blog looks great to me, but then I've only just begun myself.......started on Jan. 31.
