A Little Girl’s Vanity- Modern Makeover

What little girl wouldn’t want to have a vanity of her own? There is something so grown-up and chic about sitting at a vanity and applying makeup, adorning oneself with jewelry, or simply brushing one’s lovely locks.

My five-year-old is a girly-girl for sure. So, when my sweet neighbor, Debbie,  offered me her old vanity for only $25, I had to jump on the opportunity! With just a little bit of chalk paint, some elbow grease, and fun fabric, the vanity was like new.

I hope this inspires you to bring an old piece of furniture back to life!

With chalk paint, you do not have to sand or prime your furniture. The paint sticks to almost any surface.
