The Vanity

_MG_6742-1
I have a thing for antique vanities. We used to have quite a few, but we downsized but selling/giving away truckloads of furniture to Fairly Honest Bill in Portland before we moved to PA. We kept a couple, but they’re living on the third floor. So the other day when I saw the neighbors on the corner having a yard sale, the first thing I saw was the antique vanity. It had a glorious large round mirror off to the side. “We don’t need it.” I said to my daughter who was in the car with me. We didn’t…not really.

“Bedtime Rituals”

But I wanted it. I wanted it so much that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I drew out a quick sketch for my next painting, which just happened to have that vanity in it._MG_6816-4

So when my Mother went out to pick up lunch, and came back immediately to tell me about a piece of furniture we needed, I knew she was talking about that vanity. I said, “It’s the vanity, isn’t it?” She said, “IT’S ON THE CORNER, FOR FREE!” I jumped in the car and we drove up the hill to the corner and jumped out. They couldn’t sell it at the yard sale, so not wanting to bring it back into their house, they put it out for free! It’s beautiful. It’s not in perfect shape, the veneer has seen a much better day in some spots, but I honestly don’t care. The drawers are solid and the mirror is amazing. =)_MG_6803-3
