Hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods...............it's not as warm here as I'd like it to be :(
John says - Funny that the silver dresser never sold?
Suzan says - Well sometimes it happens
John says - I thought that one would fly out the door
Suzan says - So did I
( I never listed it..................couldn't do it )
Suzan says - Well since no one wants it I think I'll use it for the bathroom vanity downstairs
John gets a horrified look on his face - picture this with his British accent please
" A BATHROOM VANITY??????????????????"
" IT'S A DRESSER !!!!!!!! "
" YOU'RE COMPLETELY OFF THE WALL "
" IT'LL LOOK RIDICULOUS "
He's serious too..............dead serious...............thinks it's absolutely ridiculous.
Dressers are to put clothes in -
They can't be used as Islands or Buffets or VANITIES - they're meant for clothes.
John says - Why don't you ask your readers what they think of the idea - because you don't listen to me
Suzan says -Half the bloggers out there have dressers for vanities !!!
Suzan says - Sandy ( a friend of ours ) has one and you told them you loved it !!!
John says - Well theirs looks like a vanity
I can't win - I keep trying and I. JUST. CAN'T. WIN.
If everything goes according to plan ( but you know what they say about that right? " all well laid plans
As economically as I can.
And part of that plan will be using this dresser
as a vanity.............
It already has a fitted glass top - so would just have to have it cut out for the drain
I'm thinking of going entirely white - floors - wall tiles - and perhaps have a chandelier instead of regular bathroom lighting - put some glam in there :) and a couple of wall sconces to match
Love these ones from Thomasville -
And I could always add a little drama with shades
I'd love to up the ante and include a towel warmer while I'm at it -
(If anyone is looking for instructions on how to turn a dresser into a vanity - this is a great site
for it ! http://houseandhome.com/design/custom-vanity )
A lot of you will remember this dresser ( I did it over a year ago ) but for those of you that don't here's what it looked like when I picked it up............
and if you'd like to see the first 2 transformations you can see them HERE lol - because this one was
Once - Twice - Three times a lady.................finally painted with Modern Masters Pewter - just brushed on with 3 coats of water based polyurethane for protection
Have a wonderful day all -
I'm scurrying to finish a custom job - will try to post photos tomorrow :)
