Remember my $20 thrift store desk I found last week?
I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it, until I saw this Crate & Barrel LaSalle Black Vanity Desk.
My little thrift store desk was a similar size to Mr. LaSalle, and I instantly knew what I had to do.
Check out my little guy's new look!
He's so sassy now.
And I'm smitten. When I first spotted this desk in the thrift store, a lightbulb appeared in my brain. I knew EXACTLY what I could do with a desk this size....make a bigger, better vanity than the one I was currently using. Just to jog your memory, here's the last vanity I was using. It was cute, but ultimately just too small!
Teeny weeny vanity, I RELEASE YOU!
Now you can see how much better my upgraded version is! I made a few changes, too. I moved the whole vanity setup to a different wall (over closer to the bathroom door, which was a bigger wall) and then I also added a few other favorite ugrades.
I found a GIANT old wooden mirror at the thrift store and painted it Sherwin Williams Sea Salt blue (same color as bathroom). I added another one of my ribbon-trimmed drum shade lamps. Then, I also decided to bring my favorite thrift store chair makeover into the mix! It's so much comfier than my little dinky stool I was using. All combined, my 8 million thrift store creations make one AWESOME vanity/dressing table!!!
I will go into great detail about how I transformed this desk in my next post (since it was a slight-debacle-that-took-3-days-but-ended-up-perfect). So, stay tuned!
Also, stay tuned for a closet update soon!
And an update on the side room!
It's really starting to come along!
That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by to check out the new vanity!
