little vanity

here is a cute little vanity I picked up. Britt has mentioned a few times she would like one so I kept my eyes open and found this little cutie

and below the inspiration photo but not sure about the distressing

 all apart and washed
 top with stain penetrating
 wiped and first coat of white
nearly done
and done.. note Grandma Stolz's chandelier in reflection

actually it is not done, I want to get a darker wax or try a treatment to age it a bit and we need to find a stool. The fellow threw in this old stool and we had one with legs that broke so thought perhaps I could combine to make this but really a simple vanity stool might be best

1957 dining set

I picked this dining set up as an alternative to the farm table. I love the style of it however the chairs have me hesitant to refinish and not sure if I should paint it. It may be on hold for a bit.

Once I got it home I saw Mrs and Mr Harold McCurdy 1957 on the one chair, I am sure this table has been part of many wonderful family dinners.
