Three Mirrored Make Up Table
Saving the Family Furniture
Another Before and After
I remember sitting at this make up table
ever since I was small child.
I would dig through the drawers
to sort through all the treasures
stashed away there over the decades.
When my grandmother passed away
I knew I had to have this table.
My husband was against the idea,
the furniture isn't spectacular, just regular stuff.
He agreed, for me.
And agreed to fix it all up while he is between jobs.
More sanding, planing, clamping, gluing and painting.
Securing the decorative pieces.
I did make a mistake though.
I wanted it to look a "little distressed"
I didn't realize it wouldn't look that way
with a fresh coat of oil based paint.
The top, although completely painted,
is rough since I didn't have him burn off all the paint.
(example of the knobs that match the dresser HERE)
But no matter, it will have a quilted table runner,
and probably a glass tray in the middle,
for all the dressing up my granddaughter, Taylor,
will do since this will be in her room at our house.
The mirrors can be positioned straight across
or curved in (as in the first photo).
Now we need to move them upstairs,
rearrange her room (here)
and remove her little kitchen/table and chairs
that she had when she was very small.
It will be a pretty re-do for
a pretty eight year old.
