Reinvented- Vanity for Little Girl's Room

"My name is Jimmy, I will take what you gimme."

Have you ever heard that saying? If you haven't, that is pretty much my theory for accepting people's stuff. Especially from my in-laws. It is sometimes very beneficial that have in-laws that purge all of the time!! (Living in a beach condo with limited storage makes you that way!) I am lucky enough to benefit from that.
Why am I telling you this? Because with a little bit of hoarding, reinventing, and love, I made this for my daughter this weekend.
Outdoor wicker side table, wicker mirror (securely in place) and purple jewelry box all from my in-laws. Then the white wicker lights I got from Target years ago (75% off) that I have only used once until now. The chair was apart of a child's table and chair set that was getting a little too small.

This was this side of the room before... (Kinda boring)

Here is her special vanity and dress up area now.

This beautiful bow organizer was made by her Aunt Lauren. I didn't realize how many bows we had until I tried to put them all on here.

I decided to make her another bow holder I found from Mommyto2. This frame was from my in-laws (I've had it for about 3 years), and the ribbon and material stuff I had in my craft boxes.

This new addition/ reinvention of furniture cost me $0, and normally that would send me over the moon, but that is not what is making me happy. I am thrilled to do something so special for my Fancy Little Girl and that she loves it!!
Helping make my little girl dream!!
Today I am participating in Reinvented. Her slogan really fits the bill this time!!

WOW, seeing how grown up Lawson looks makes me sad. The vanity and whole reinvent idea is masterful and you know that Lawson is in love with her new space. How very thoughtful and loving of you to do such a special thing for your little girl. I love you! MOM

I love the colors you used. Very girly! Thanks so much. We love bows at our house. Okay maybe I do, and hopefully my daughter will too when she's old enough. Right now I force them upon her.

Oh that is so sweet.You put that together perfectly, and your daughter obviously loves it! My 13 yr old is purging all her girly stuff in favor of "hippy" decor - it makes me so sad, but she's gotta do her thing. Ah well, they grow so fast, enjoy the girly stage!

The vanity area is awesome! I bet she is just in love with it too. Just as an FYI: Lawson has mentioned to me several times that the vanity is missing something... real makeup, "you know like grown ups use!" She's adorable. Also, the picture of her looking at herself in the mirror brings tears to my eyes. The kids are growing so fast. I feel blessed to be a part of their lives.
