Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.
My sweet darling 5 year old daughter is one of my greatest joys. For several months she has been asking me for a pink dresser. I’m happy to say that I finally found her a beautiful wood vanity that was in need of a major revival.
Below you will find the steps I took to transform this beat up brown vanity into a beautiful pretty in pink vanity for my daughter.
Sanded down entire piece, including drawers. Wiped off debris and dust with tack clothes.
Applied 3 layers of pink paint to entire piece, including the drawer sides and one top coat of clear Minwax water based polyurethane in Satin finish to add extra protection.
Lined drawers with old story book pages, using Mod Podge .
Taped off sides of drawers to add a 3″ turquoise strip sides of drawers.
Drilled new holes for new hardware. This time, the drawer pulls covered up the old holes, so no wood filler was needed.
I finished this project in 2 days time, and had it all set up in my daughters room for her to see when she got home from school today. She was so excited , she even started jumping up and down. Success! 🙂
Here are the after photos, enjoy!
I am really happy with how this vanity turned out, and even happier that my daughter loves it! Her room is finally starting to look like a bedroom!
Thanks for reading, I hope you all have a wonderful night and weekend!

What type of paint did you use (latex, etc….glossy etc…spray or brush…) thanks.
Hi Nancy! I use a satin finish paint, and brush. 🙂 I jump around with my paint brands, but typically buy my paint at Menards. 🙂
