{Pink Vanity}

I found this piece at a garage sale this summer, one of the coolest garage sales I've been too.  The guy used to own an antique shop that went out of business.  I scored some awesome things, most of it I will be selling at Fallow Field Farms Marketplace Sept 17th!  
This piece is one of them.

It started like this.  A little dirty and a little sad if you ask me.  It wasn't meant to be black!  Didn't it know it was meant to be a little girl's primping table?  The nerve.


After painting it a very soft pink I distressed it to let the black show through.  I kept the original hardware and spray painted them oil rubbed bronze, love that stuff now that I finally found it!!

I originally thought I would put on an amazing awesome antique mirror that I got at the same garage sale, but I couldn't make it work, bummer!

Oh well, it still looks cute without it.....right?

For all you locals out there, I'd love to meet my blogging 'friends' in person!!  Come on over to Fallow Field Farms Sept 17th!!
