Emma’s room is a bit smaller than I would like. And as such, sometimes it looks a bit cluttered.
This Vanity Table, while fabulous, is one that adds to the clutter.
I think it gets lost and looks cluttered because the Ivory color blends too much with the walls. Looks drowned out. This weekend I decided to paint it and therefore am going to show you the results of Emma’s…
Painted Child’s Vanity Table
You don’t have to live with something you don’t like, nor just get rid of it. You have other options.
It didn’t take but a day, in between playing on the internet, watching a little TV and finishing up some long over due projects, to complete.
And Emma loved the results!
I started off with the stool and unscrewed the cushion from the frame.
Then I had to remove the mirror from the table itself.
All that was left was to paint.
I used a sponge, for the most part. But for the more difficult areas, I used a small paint brush.
It took 3 coats of paint (as you can tell what it looked like with only 1 coat above).
Once dry, I finished it off with a clear semi-gloss coating.
But I only coated the top because I really prefer the more matte look, but needed something to protect Emma’s table from her make-up and just her rough and tumble nature.
A little secret…I used some that we had around the house, which made that even easier.
Of course, you have to assemble everything back together once it has dried.
But then you have a new piece that no longer adds to the clutter, instead…now pops against the wall.
BTW…you can see I also painted the wood frame that belongs to Emma’s hamper.
Helped to add that pop of color as well.
Stay tuned for the complete Tour of Emma’s Room to come soon.
In the meantime, I challenge you to re-do a piece that no longer fits within your design instead of replacing or just living with it.
