Finally...the vanity.

I had scoured Oxford for a vanity table or desk to use as a make up table in our new master bedroom.  Make up tables remind me of my grandmother and I had the room in our new house to have one of my own.  I finally found one and Kevin bought it for me for my birthday back in January. 
It was white with some blue poking through.  While the colors were great it did not go with the master.  One weekend while Kevin was away with softball, I got to painting.  I have been obsessed with spray painting and I found the perfect color at Home Depot.  Three cans of spray paint later I had this.
I added the mirror from Goodwill and the re-covered piano bench street find.

The make up brush glass was a dollar store purchase.  The cream colored bowl was a wedding gift gathering dust.  I found the lamp at Goodwill for $3.99.  The tall planter was originally a fire engine red, repainted flat brown.  I bought the flowers at the dollar store and arranged them in a small square vase.  Lastly added the "happily ever after sign".

                                                                            I created the tray from the sheet 
                                                                           music of the first song Kevin and
                                                                           I danced to.  The little stand was
                                                                                                                 from my mom.  And I found the
                                                                                                                 silver container at Target and
                                                                                                                 filled with moss.

I have been using the table all week now and love it.  I like being able to sit down to my make up.  I feel like a proper lady, too.
