Monday at My Home

Happy Monday Luvs!

I have been busy working on my vanity after all your wonderful suggestions last Monday!

I decided that I definitely needed a mirror, I mean no vanity is complete without it! I found a very cute and affordable mirror at my favorite store, the Goodwill, for $12. I also found a cute vintage silver tray and a blue and gold floral box. I have been searching for a stool at a few Goodwill's but could not find any. I about gave up until my sister called and said that when she was at their rental property she found a cute little stool in the garage! I was so excited! All it needed was a couple coats of paint and some new fabric! The other items that I used I already had. I am so proud of the finished look and I am even more proud of how much the whole makeover cost... $30! Yay, that always feels so good when you can do a lot with just a little!
Hope you love it as much as I do!

The stool was a gift to you. What a fun reminder that God is personal and sees even incidentals:)

Gotta say though, with that picture of Evie, you didn't really need anything else to make it adorable.

Oh wow. You really restored that stool. It looks brand new and very chic. I love the small vanity. Your vanity barely takes any space at all. It gives me hope that I can one day have my very own vanity! Have a great day!

I had my desk growing up at home and have no idea where my Mom got it. So sorry! I just recently painted it white!
