Hot Pink Vanity

When I found this little vanity, it already looked pretty darned cute!

I sanded it, filled hardware holes and drilled new ones. 

At Home Depot I found a hot pink paint/primer called..."Hot Pink," and sprayed it on.

After distressing, I brushed on some black RL glaze, getting in the nooks and crannies.
  Then I wiped away most of it, leaving a sweet antiqued look.

This little message was hidden on the inside of the vanity~  :)
Just a bit of black paint took care of that!

Wipe-on poly was the perfect way to finish it off and give a nice bit of shine and protection~

At Hobby Lobby I bought some more of this fun zebra fabric that I have used before~

All of the drawers and little compartments were lined with the fabric, using Mod Podge~
Once the fabric was in the drawers, I also brushed a coat of MP over the top of the fabric for extra protection.  I figured some lucky girl is going to have lots of makeup and things stashed in there! :)

Before~

Hot Pinked!

Lots of fun surprises inside~

I can just picture this full of make-up and fingernail polish!


The  top left drawer (shown) holds rings, and the top right one has a bunch of small compartments for earrings and necklaces~







Hobby Lobby zebra knobs~ just one was the perfect finishing touch!
The little black knobs are also from Hobby Lobby.

I recovered the bench cushion, too.  It's really easy to do...just lots of staples!


Thanks for dropping in!!! :)
