One of my favorite things to do is browse Pinterest. A couple weeks ago, I was doing a quick paint job on an old vanity I was going to use in my craft room. I had no idea what I was going to do with the mirror. I thought maybe a chalk board or maybe I would not use it at all. (I apologize for the lack of pictures. I wasn’t planning on starting a blog when I started this project.)
Browsing Pinterest for ideas to organize my craft supplies, I came upon this idea for organizing paint.
Then, it was like a lightbulb went off in my head, and I had a perfect way to use the mirror for the vanity. I already painted the base with a pretty blue chalk paint. I needed my husbands expertise to attach the mirror to the rest of the vanity.
My husband added a metal bracket to the bottom for me to use as a shelf. He than measured where the nails would go. I painted the mirror frame with the same paint used for the base. After it was dry, I had fun and added the paints.
I used clips for the tubes. I had a K-Cup holder I was going to throw away, but decided I would use paper clips to add paint too. The shelf holds liquid watercolor. (It really is my favorite watercolor). I have gesso and acrylics on the frame.
I ran out of binder and paper clips, so one drawer holds more paint. My glue gun is in another. I have more room to keep myself organized.
I am so happy I was able to find a new purpose for this pretty vanity I was given by a good friend. Every time I look at this I smile and it make me happy.
