Decorating a vanity- with shower curtain hooks

Sounds crazy, doesn't it?  What do you mean decorate a vanity with shower curtain hooks?

I'll show you.

This vanity is a pretty ordinary waterfall vanity.  I wanted to make it a little more elegant and shabby.

I like how this one has some curves to it.

I decided to add some detail.  I looked through my collection of possibilities, but came up short.  Then I saw a bag of shower curtain hooks with beautiful roses on the ends.  


I cut off the hooks and glued the flowers where I wanted them.

 After painting it white and switching out the handles for some clear glass ones.  She is all dressed up and ready to go!

Isn't it pretty?

Are you ready?

Boring beige to Boho Chic!

This is something I've been wanting to do.  I finally tackled it and am so happy I did.  I turned a boring beige chair into a fun and vibrant Boho chic chair.

I did not take pictures of the journey this time, but I'm sure you can still appreciate the before and after.
