DIY Dresse to Vanity Conversion post from Cajun at Blooming In Bedlam

Friday, September 5, 2014

I feel very blessed to be able to share this post with you. Cajun over at Blooming in Bedlam took an old dresser and flipped it into a Vanity. She did an amazing job. Think I can get her to do one for me?

I love a good furniture refurbish. It is always a good thing to repurpose something to better use. This maybe isn’t the most convenient project you could take on because it does require some power tool and construction experience. Consequently, it scores a bit low in the the Bedlam department, but the results are so wonderful I had to share it.
Last Thanksgiving (before the blog was born) I was enjoying some brainstorming with my sister-in-law. Being a mom of three, she was stumped at what to get her youngest teenage daughter for Christmas. She mentioned wanting to get or make a vanity to help free up the bathroom. We girls do love to groom. I mentioned my friend, Brandie over at Fresh Furniture, who always has interesting pieces just waiting to be customized or refreshed. She didn’t happen to have any vanities, but she did have a little dresser needing some love. It seemed perfect for some awesome diy pinterest customizations I had been wanting to try. Normally, I would wait for Fresh Furniture to find the perfect little piece (because she has amazing taste and is ALWAYS my #1 source for unique furniture finds), but the Christmas Clock was ticking. Thus, the DIY Dresser to Vanity Conversion was born!
Here is what we started with. Really sweet, right? But not exactly a vanity. I needed to make this primp-perfect stat!

Let’s look back at her evolution before the final reveal.
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I very much wanted to keep this little gem when she was all finished. Who wouldn’t?
See the appliances all tucked away below?
