I know it is only September, but if you are going to be making presents for Christmas, now is the perfect time to start!
Last year I made my daughter a play vanity.
I used the stash of wood my father-in-law gave me. I measured and cut the wood.... (this is the same stash of wood that I used to make my narrow cottage end tables)
In case you are wondering about the plans for this build, I got them off of my favorite site Ana White, you can see the plans here. From the pile of wood above, this is what I ended up with...
I added the support between the shelves with my kreg jig. The top moulding is a half inch too short, but I was on a free budget with this present and this was the only moulding I had. It works! My sweet little girl never even noticed.
You can also see the spackling I used to fill in the cracks. The wood was a little warped since it had been sitting in a shed for years.
Now on to priming...
See my headboard bench in the back ground? I had built it first then the vanity and choose to prime at the same time. What you can't see is the snow on my driveway...what was I thinking...Brrr!
I cut some fun vinyl shapes and slapped them on.
And Viola! Pretty Princess Vanity...
My daughter LOVED it!
mirror I redid for her.
And one more shot of our Pretty Princess...

Lots of love,
I will be linking to these parties.
