Vanity take one

I say "take one" because I have yet to finish the stool and mirror for this piece! I am so excited with how the actual vanity turned out though, that I wanted to share it today! Also, because it was a gift for my Wunkie princess and was used for the cupcake spread for her "Cupcake and Tea" party! :)  I will get to that post, I promise!  I had to use my friend's camera since mine died five minutes into the ordeal! -__-  So, when I get the pictures from her, you will get the magical Tea party post from me! hehe...Ok, so the vanity!  It started out like this as I shared in this post!





Wunkie and I went back and forth about the color.  She, of course, wanted it to be pink...I wanted antique white with pink hardware...well little Miss Princess won...sort of! ;)

I painted it in Glidden's Driftwood Grey, which was free since they recently did a free quart promotion, and I added the design on the top in Benjamin Moore's Whispy Pink.  I also painted the fronts of the drawers in Whispy Pink! :) Here is a closeup of the top:

And here it is with for Wunkie's party!
I think this last picture is the one that demonstrates the vanity's true color best.  Lighting is a bit off in the other pictures.  I am in love!  More importantly, the Princess is in love! ;) P.S. The party was a complete success!

**Update:  I forgot to mention that the vanity was a CL find for only $75!  I think I mentioned it in the original post...but yeah...$75!!!! :)
