Just Add Paint ~ Cabinet Make-Over

A few years ago, I was looking for an antique vanity for my daughter’s room.  I ended up having to drive out of town to pick-up my Kijiji purchase, but when I got there I found out she had a second vanity, a dresser, a little cabinet and bench.  She was really wanting to get rid of the stuff and if I remember correctly, I got everything for around $60.  I don’t remember the exact amount, but it was cheap.  I took all the pieces and sanded, repaired and painted them over time.  Here are the original pieces.

I actually still have one of the vanities (not in above photos) that I have not yet completed.  The little cabinet (on the left in the last photo) was not an antique, but was old and built well.  I painted it out and used a dollar store stencil to decorate the top.  It now sits in our kitchen below our menu board.  I love the finished look and the cabinet virtually cost nothing as it was thrown in with my other purchases.
