Before and After – Pink Vanity Table

This is great! I am doing what I love doing, and others pay me for it. Who would not love that?

This is yet another DIY that I have been commissioned to do! Why not?!

My lovely sister-in-law mentioned that she wanted to do something with her girls (my nieces) bedroom. She mentioned she had some old furniture there already and an old bed and lots of pink carpets and curtains.  We talked about a few ideas, and decided to start with the girly vanity table.

The piece itself was a beautiful quality vanity table. It was covered with stickers, but that came off quite easily with some sanding.

Sanding the table and then a coat of undercoat lifted it up and definitely covered some imperfections and covered well its real age.

Initially, I picked a lighter pink, but after some deliberation, we settled on the hot pink, which I made by mixing some of the colours I’ve already had.

Some hand-made tulle flowers have done a good job braking up the solid colour beautifully.

I did have one problem with painting the mirror. Even though I’ve used duct-tape, some paint has leaked under the frame and looked very messy. I had to improvise a little and using a glue gun, stick a ribbon all along the inner edge of the frame. Ended up looking intentional and beautiful!

Very girly!

Zara Home had a large selection of handles, and these ones stole my aspiring designer heart!

Little touches make a big difference.
