Oh Vanity!

So I have a pedestal sink in my bathroom. Love it but it is not very functional when I am trying to get ready in the morning because of the limited countertop space. I usually end up dragging all my stuff over to the tub area and sitting on the floor to put my makeup on. This worked fine for awhile (although still a pain) until miss gwen started to pull herself up and had all access to my stuff. Jacob suggested that he make a vanity for this awkward spot in our bedroom that we weren't sure what to do with anyway. I showed him a picture of what I wanted it to look like and then he and the kids went to work! The great thing about this project was that it cost next to nothing because we used items we already had and most of the wood was used from leftovers of previous projects! I LOVE my new space and I actually look forward to getting ready in the morning. Ava is particularly fond of this space as well since the bench has room enough for two (she often keeps me company)!
