Spring has Sprung

Remember this tired old girl??

Well look at her now!

The hardware is original to the piece

We custom mixed a pale Duck Egg Blue
highlighted with white

A bit of Coco really brings out the pale blue

After refinishing the top
back to wood
we stenciled the sweetest little bird

As luck would have it
I just happened to have
the most perfect fabric
to recover the bench...
It's French Laundry
and it's soft, nubby, and lovely

This poor bench...
Removing it's layers of fabric
was like a trip through the past four decades

It had it's original pale blue velvet
covered with hunter green chintz
followed by 1980's brushstrokes fabric
before finally being covered
in a dark mauve sheet!

The original mirror is in great shape
and the original dividers are still in place...

Love Love Love this vanity!
I would probably repurpose it as a desk
and stash pens and such inside
but it would def work as intended, as well!
