It is a season of transformation! It has been so fun to be creating so much, and I am LOVING all these transformations of space, place, crafty things, furniture, boots, and clothes (and SO many other things that are coming out soon!). One of my latest projects was this DIY upcycled vanity for my daughter's room. I can't get enough of this process of making something colorful and unique to share with my commUNITY.
As you know we relocate a lot, and with that comes continually making the space our own. In doing so, it forces ALL the creativity out of me to think of ways to keep my home, my home — a colorful, vibrant, safe place filled with love, fun, coffee, glitter, kids, and dog hair
while also keeping these projects as really easy and inexpensive as I can.
This DIY Upcycled Vanity for my daughter's room makeover is just one piece to the bigger project of a total room makeover. All that we used was spray paint, foil, and fun.
Let's do this babes!
To start, let's see the "before" of this vanity — not bad, but also not great.
But now we are about to bring it to life!
What I Used for DIY Upcycled Vanity
I didn't need much for my DIY upcycled vanity. Here is everything I used:
Vanity- we had this for awhile now!
Toothbrush/tools for applying foil
How I Created the DIY Upcycled Vanity
Sometimes it is as simple as adding a fresh coat of paint and a little shine (aka: gold foil)
I think I am going to foil everything now; it was SO fun and satisfying to use and create with.
First, I lightly sanded the entire vanity, then cleaned it off and gave it a coat of paint,
I used painter's tape around the mirror and a razor to scrape anything that got left behind.
ColorShot makes it so easy to spray paint all things. I love this spray paint, and the color Island Girl is my daughter's FAVORITE color!
Once the vanity was painted and dried, I decided where I wanted to put the foil accents. I used the foil adhesive in the places I wanted foil. It is important to use foil adhesive because gold foil can tarnish if using a water-based adhesive. This is also why it is important to seal it with sealant specifically for foiling as well. The gold foil from Artist Painting Studio goes SO far and you can just keep using it over and over until the sheet is empty. So satisfying when you use up an entire sheet!
This DIY Upcycled Vanity was a fun start to the total room makeover and an important piece in my daughter's room! I love how it turned out and I am excited to reveal the final room transformation
