Glamorous Vanity

A gift from my sister, this vanity sat in my garage for six months while I was working on other projects and pondering how  to transform it.  Initially it was going to be a silver metallic, but a friend showed me a new bronze metallic paint color.   It’s always fun to try something new!

It was missing four out of six knobs so new hardware was needed.  I think of hardware as furniture’s jewelry or accessory.  It’s a place you can try different styles to see which one you’ll like best.

I had this fabric and thought it would look perfect on the vanity chair.  To make the vanity have a little “zing” to it, I painted the mirror in black, playing off the fabric.

Whether in a bedroom or bathroom, this vanity will add some personality to the room.  This piece is for sale at the Plaid Rabbit in the Village of East Davenport, 1018 Mound Street.


Donation for Blue Devil Athletic Foundation

For the past couple of years, I have donated a piece of furniture to the Blue Devil Athletic Foundation for their annual Dinner Auction and Dance.  My son currently attends Davenport Central and it’s my alma mater, and he plays tennis like I did for Central back in the day.


I decided that this would be a perfect piece for the event as it is so versatile. The chalkboard labels can be changed at anytime, so it could be used in a kitchen, an entryway, a bathroom not to mention in a child’s room.

There are side handles that can hold umbrellas, canes or other tall items while the bins hold items for members of the family.


It’s narrow so it won’t take up much room in a bathroom and the side handles can hold washcloths or hand towels.

There are some many possible uses for this unique piece.


If you’re interested in this fun piece of furniture, come to the Blue Devil Athletic Foundation Dinner Auction and Dance on Friday, November 14th at the River Center.
