This cute little vanity started as an old painted orange, flip-top desk with square legs. I changed the legs added some applique's, crackle paint, trim and an old shaving mirror. Under the glass I printed off some vintage postcards I found on the Internet. It's really a darling little piece!
I picked up this wash basin (looking around discreetly) shhhhhh..... out of the garbage of an antique market that was closing down. It was just outside with the trash! Just lying there! I felt sorry for it. It needed a home. It was so .... unloved.
I needed a base and tried a few different things on it, but I liked the way this old set of carriage wheels looked with it.
I picked up the wheels at an outdoor country market sale. I think I paid a dollar or two for them.I added some foam in the bottom and arranged some very natural looking flowers in it, then placed a piece of glass on top.
Sorry.... no 'during' pictures... this post was from the days when I just took befores and afters!
Yes.... the hideous shed roof has finally been redone since this picture. FINALLY!
