Who loves furniture makovers? I do! I do! I showed you our revamped hutch last week, and now it's time for a non-kitchen related makeover. For someone who doesn't wear makeup regularly, a hair and makeup station seems like a waste of furniture, but it's nice to have a place where I can keep all my supplies organized and sit down comfortably to doll meself up when I'm feeling girly. My hair and makeup station consists of an old (70's) beat up desk, its matching old beat up chair, a generic-looking stool, and a generic-looking mirror...
The old beat up desk and the stool before.

The desk and the chair belonged to my mother in law. She didn't want them anymore and she asked me if I wanted them (knowing that I like to upcycle things!). Do I want it?! Gimme! I knew what I wanted to do with them right away - hand me the white paint! I have a thing for white furniture with dark hardware. Behold the makeover...
I love my new hair and makeup station! Even if I don't use it daily, I still enjoy having it there just looking purdy. See that little mirror on the desk? That used to have a gold finish, but I painted it aqua. The little plastic drawers on top of the stool used to have grey knobs, but I painted those as well. Perhaps I should have taken a picture of the stool so you could see it better. It has white legs with a dark walnut seat. Look inside one of the drawers!
The drawers were unfinished inside. I painted them white and covered the bottoms with shelf liners. Wanna see the fabric I used for the chair?
Swoon! (it's from Hobby Lobby)
That's it! I hope you enjoyed this furniture makeover! Let me know if you still want to see more - there is one more cool makeover that I could brag about! :)
Today's duck photo goes out to Christina! What's wrong with this seemingly sweet picture though?
Oh no! Curly is having an Alien moment!

UPDATE: Looks like I'm on YouTube now. I made a few cooking videos. Let's see how long that lasts. They are ASMR-friendly videos with no talking or background music, only cooking sounds. ASMR videos have helped me cope with anxiety, so I thought I'd try to make my own. If you're one of those people who don't experience ASMR, then the videos might seem a bit... *odd*.
