I started by just making a 12" square from 1"x4"s, (from the pallets) attaching some legs, (from the pallets) and attaching a top. The top was just part of an old TV cart that fell apart, but I kept the pieces just in case I could ever use them. Then threw on a couple coats of primer, then paint.
|See? It's very small but fits the area perfectly.|
I built a little shelf to put under the mirror for added storage as well. I can put my brushes on the shelf and a basket, that I painted, under the shelf for odds and ends.
When I was a little girl I took piano lessons for a time and my mom bought me a piano stool. Although I only played for a short time, I kept the stool all these years. My brother always loved the stool, so he had it in his home for a few years. A couple weeks ago I was there and asked if I could have take it back and they were okay with that. I asked my mom and brother if they minded if I painted it white, to go with my project. They both objected vehemently. So, as you can see, it sticks out like a sore thumb. I know it is mine, and the ultimate decision is mine, but for some reason it's important to them to keep it in it's original shape. And I'm nothing if not accommodating.
Although I'm 54 years old, I still like girly things and this makes me feel like a girl. And I'm single so can have my room as girly as I want it!
