desk makeover

waayyy back when I was a teenager, I was given this vanity that was my great grandmothers. I used it for years as a vanity, but it has been sitting now in my basement for years.
Time to fix it up.

enter dad and a lesson on sanding..

some sweet little lamps found at super store ( $10 each! ) that will look lovely when it's done.

It will get a second sanding this weekend, but in the mean time I'm getting a feel for it-

( AND, a huge thank you to mom, dad, jared, kevin, karen + terry, oh yeah and I think Ryan put in a few screws too.. for all your help with the basement!! xo )

Hi Michelle, thanks for the sweet comment! The lamps were purchased here in Canada at Superstore or Loblaws. Thanks xo
