Dainty Vanity

I have a weakness for vanities.  
This vanity was in pretty good order.  It is a rare day when you purchase an older piece of furniture that is in perfect shape.  There are always nails missing, drawer guides lost, chipped veneers.

A little bit of fabric to tidy up the hanky drawer

The vanity is painted a soft white and lightly distressed.

The hardware is original and in perfect condition.  
The hanky drawer handles remind me of 
butter scotch candies.

The bevelled mirror is in excellent condition.

I have been busy painting furniture...and I will be posting pictures later this week.  I just thought I would share this idea.  This is for everyone that forgets to water their houseplants.  Create a small vignette with your plants with a pretty container.  I use a wine bottle.  Just keep it filled with water.  When you pass by, the water is already there so it only takes a moment to water your plants.  Add some liquid fertilizer during the appropriate season.  Easy Peasy.
