I picked up this rough looking vanity at a yard sale.
The main mirror was missing, the wood looked terrible, and the drawers were full of dead stink-bugs. But I could see that at one time it had been quite sweet and I wanted to make it nice again. It sat in the basement for a while as I tried to figure out how to save it.
I really didn’t need a vanity but I did need some very skinny nightstands. And this vanity was absolutely perfect. I figured I would need to cut the middle part away from the two sides but I was able to simply unscrew all the pieces and was left with two perfect nightstands.
I decided to paint them a deep smoky gray blue color. I kept the original hardware but gave it a quick spray-paint and glaze treatment.
