I found this vanity from Target at a garage sale. It was a boring cream color.
After two years of not using it for its intended purpose (it was being used as a bedroom catch-all), I gifted it to my five-year-old self-proclaimed princess.
We added some L-brackets to the mirror for safety and painted it her favorite color - bright, sunshine-y yellow. I finished the drawer in a key lime green to give it an extra punch.
Boring? Not anymore...I just hope her make-up choices as she grows up are a little more tame!!

An ordinary white vanity from Target (but snagged at a garage sale for 1/3 of the price) turned into a colorful princess vanity.

Lulu, my daughter, really loves her vanity, and I am so excited that my intense weekend of spray painting was worthwhile! Honestly, I'd NEVER pick these colors, but that's what being a Mom is all about - trying not to stifle her creativity so someday she can blog on here in my place!

Thank you kindly for your words of encouragement!!! Posted: 8:02 pm on May 23rd
