Painted White Desk

This was one of those projects that seemed to take a little more time. It all started when my husband broke the antique mirror to this vanity. I was so sad! The mirror was in perfect condition.

Around here, we transform things. I decided to make it a desk and save the broken mirror for another project.




I started to paint the details in blue but really didn't like it so I decided to change it to white.






Much better! Sometimes you just have to experiment to see what you like. I only changed the top pulls and left the bottom original.




I dry brushed over the top of the pull so the details could show up more. I upholstered a little bench to go with it and brought it to the store!

The little mishap turned into a little gem! (and saved my husband) LOL


And if someone wants to hang a mirror over it, I think it could still be a cute vanity! Now it is ready for some love notes for Valentines!

Available at La Vie En Rose Cottage in Nashville, Tennessee.

So cute! I liked the blue details but white is pretty as well. The seat is fun with it.

That's gorgeous! I love how you try new things and then just adapt if they don't work out! Thanks so much for sharing at my party!
