The vanity

I got this vanity off craigslist (love that site)!  It was sitting in someone's basement, and had water damage around the bottom.  I have seen exact vanitys selling at consignment shops for well over $170.  This one needed a little help, but I had someone that fell in love with it and wanted me to paint it in a Moroccan theme.  Not knowing much about that theme, I set out on a search.  The first thing I found was the new material for the seat, and went from there.  As I was waiting for the material to be shipped, I started sanding, glueing, and painting this piece.  Here is the before.

Moroccan theme...huh!

With cabin red paint I mixed some black, and some more black to get my 2 colors, and bought a little pod of yellow for the accent stencil. There is a large round mirror, but I kept it in a secure area, I didn't want anything to happen to it. I did use the material in all the drawers, but I forgot to take a picture.  It was picked up today, and I think she LOVED IT!
