Nightstand/Vanity

 This past summer Erik and I taught summer school. The school we taught at took us by a thrift shop we didn't know existed. We found this lovely table for $14!! The blue wasn't that awesome, but seriously..$14!? I really wanted a vanity as the nightstand on my side of the bed.
I love that a soccer  ball somehow got into this picture. The desk had two drawers. They are perfect for storing all the junk I need handy (hair ties for my crazy morning hair, phone chargers, etc.). Well anyhow, we sanded it down and went to Sherwin Williams to pick out a color. We ended up with "Ice Cube." It is a nice white with just a hint of gray.

Thanks to Mom's help it was done before it got too cold to dry oil-based paint in our garage.

I always love looking through the knobs at Anthropolgie but I finally had a reason! I found these adorable mercury glass knobs for my vanity. Next step: venetian glass mirror (that isn't $500) to go above it!

  1. I love this. If you tire of it, please let me know! I like it white...but I really loved the original state, too!

  2. The blue was pretty fun but didn't match our bedroom palate. It also had this funky old contact paper in the drawers. I should have taken a pic. $14!
