my cousins and i used to sit at our grandmother's wheat-colored waterfall vanity exploring the drawers filled with lady-making goodies. my favorites were the mini-lipstick samplers; they were so darn cute! never was a chastising peep heard from our grandmother as we likely smashed lipsticks into the their lids and plopped items any which place after our experimentation. oh, the patience she had to let us have such fun at the expense of her make-up organization.
snifffffffffff.... if i close my eyes i can still smell her perfume lingering around her vanity.
a whiff of it sailed by me last summer when i spotted this vanity on craigslist for THIRTY DOLLARS. no, it's not a waterfall vanity but it brought me back my glittering grandmother and her elegant vanity. perhaps it was the honey-warm wood or golden goodness of the hardware....
you can see the areas on the top and below pre- and post-sanding.
then came the glam... the golden glam a la rub 'n buff....
do you like the artsy integration of the golden lacrosse ball? you can thank frick and frack for flipping that into my scene.
at least it missed my head.
okay, what do you think? love? hate? disappointment? i can take it. really. it won't shatter my memories of my dear grandmother or anything. really.
and don't you think her tootsies need some glam, too? how about a 1 inch dip in gold?
your turn, now. lemme have it.
