Another Vanity

I just bought another vanity but this one has a beautiful bench.  It is another piece from Strathroy Furniture Company.  This company always made good quality furniture.  Some woman buy clothes, my thing is furniture.  

I see this set painted a warm white, just lightly distressed.

It looks rough, but it is a very sturdy bench

You're so Vanity

This little vanity was in pretty rough shape when we brought her home.  People seem to get used to having a piece of furniture around and forget to take care of it.  

What good looking legs!

 This is what she looks like now.  This pretty vanity has been brought back to life with sanding, glue and paint.  The vanity is solid wood-no particle board here.  The mirror is new; the original as too deteriorated to save.  The side mirrors are hinged to adjust for view!

She is 67 inches tall, 44 inches wide and 18 iches deep.

Getting Organized

I sold this repurposed window today. When I got this solid oak window frame it was in really bad shape.  It had screen stapled to the back...I don't think that it ever held glass as there were no grooves around the edges.  It is the perfect size for a chalk board/bulletin board combination.  A drawer cup holder is a perfect chalk holder.

I understand the new owner is really going to get organized!
