DIY Custom Vanity

IMG_1507With the summer season comes a ton of free time for DIY projects!  I have almost a million (hardly an exaggeration) ideas and all the time in the world to work on them.  This project has actually been in the making for a while now.  It all began when I spotted a beautiful solid wood desk at our local mission.  Thirty five dollars later and she was heading home with me!

IMG_1055This feels like it’s becoming a trend, but I forgot to take a proper “before” photo.   I did manage to snap this one of a couple of the drawers before painting.  I have a couple of during shots as well listed below.  I used the same chalk paint that was used for my Entertainment Center.

IMG_1054Here it is before adding the drawers. I painted two coats of the Americana Chalk Paint mostly with a foam roller and a brush in the detailed areas.  This paint is extremely easy to work with and a little goes a very long way.  I only needed an 8 oz. container to cover this entire desk.

IMG_1278The above is the desk before my brother kindly attached the mirror.  This was a mirror that was originally attached to my bedroom dresser.  It was mounted with the frame that held it to the original dresser and some additional screws for added support.  I also changed out the knobs with cute yellow zig zag pulls from Home Depot.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the result of this project.  Look out for a post on how I organized the drawers (still working on it).  I still haven’t painted the mirror frame as I haven’t decided if it would look better white or silver.  I thought I would paint the chair to match!  What do you all think?  Leave a comment below!
