A New Old Vanity Set for the Grandie Girls’ Room.
I have been waiting and excited to share this post for a while. July was full of watercolor paintings for #WorldWatercolorMonth and then there was Cookie Week last week, so I am finally getting around to sharing my latest home project.
I am blessed with the great fortune of having wonderfully generous friends and relatives! My most recent “gift” is a beautiful antique vanity set from my cousin, Rob.
This vanity set was his beloved Mom’s and was a wedding gift to her.
It still has writing on the bottom of a couple of the drawers with names and dates.
So you can see it is at least 84 years old since it is dated “January 12, 1935.”
I adore it so much! Not only because it is beautiful, but because of the special-ness it holds as a family heirloom.
I chalk painted it up and reupholstered the chair to match the rest of one of my favorite rooms in my home – the grandie girls’ bedroom.
You may recall what the room looked like a few years ago when I shared it here after learning I was going to be a first-time grandma to a baby girl.
The room has evolved since then, and is now shared by two grandie girls. Oh the joy of listening to them during a “nap” break recently chattering away until one, and then the other, fell asleep, but not until many books were looked at and laid all over the floor with a few pillows and dolls tossed about as well.
It is now filled with wonderful “hand-me-downs” from generous friends and relatives – cherished pieces that all have special meaning! But most of all it is filled with the joy and love that only comes from being a grandma – my favorite name in the entire world!
Cheers & Hugs,
