Vera Bradley Vanity
I shared this project yesterday at Finding Fabulous. I thought I’d repost it here in case anyone missed it!
At Value Village, this beauty stopped me in my tracks.
I had no idea what it was at first, I thought maybe a Spinet desk. Once I lifted the lid, it became clear.
A phonograph. My first thought was, “I love this.” My second thought was, “How can I transform it into something beautiful and useful?”
I stood there staring at it for a full minute and then it came to me…a vanity.
So I brought it home, cleaned it up and removed all the parts from the inside.
All that remained were these gaping holes. Not pretty.
So I cut some plywood to fit the openings and covered them in this happy Vera Bradley fabric.
Meanwhile, I painted the inside and outside of the vanity-to-be in my favorite PARA melamine oil-based black paint.
I bought a mirror from Dollarama and added some green and pink bling for a touch of glam.
Now before I show you the “after” let’s talk about the vanity chair.
I found this vintage vanity chair at a garage sale last summer. Poor thing has been in my garage waiting for the right project to come along. Today was its lucky day.
I spray painted it with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch in glossy black. Then covered the seat in Vera Bradley fabric and some suh-weet pom pom fringe. Cause everything is cuter with pom pom fringe. I think I need that on a bumper sticker!
I replaced the knob with a glass one, popped the fabric covered plywood into place and hung the mirror…
a phonograph-turned-Vera Bradley vanity!
Have a great weekend!
