I Need Your Opinion

A few posts ago I mentioned this worn, sad vanity/desk.  It belonged to my great-grandmother, and was passed down to me by my grandmother.


It is in desperate need of a makeover!

Here is where you come in...

I need opinions.

I am, at the very least, indecisive.

I can NEVER make my mind up about anything.

I mean, it takes me fifteen minutes to decide which color nail polish to buy.

This is a whole piece of furniture.

I can't just wipe it off and start again (at least not without a huge amount of effort).

Here are a few of my ideas...

(feel free to add your own)

I was thinking that I could stencil a quatrefoil design on the top like this talented lady did.

Maybe paint it gray with white quatrefoil

and this...

Amy Butler Midwest Modern II Fresh Poppies Linen

lovely fabric upholstered to the seat?


Paint the entire thing a distressed white...

Swavelle/Mill Creek Indoor/Outdoor Faylinn Teal

With something like this beachy coral print on the seat?

But wait...

Another option, and a tad off the wall for me...

Paint the desk a pretty light blue...

Alana Matelasse Kiwi

With this floral on the upholstered seat


a light GREEN paint on the bench!

And the last option...

Plain ol' gray desk...

With a little white bird stenciling in the corner of one, or both bottom drawers...

Dwell Studio Vintage Blossom Dove

with this pretty print on the seat?

Decisions, decisions!


Have a fantastic weekend!


P.S. All fabric is available at!


  1. I am loving the beachy theme....but that just maybe because I am so ready for winter to be over...;-)

  2. Oh man they are all beautiful!!! You chose some wonderful fabrics and colors! I am partial to the beach theme as well but that is me. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these. i can't wait to see what you decide! :)

  3. I am partial to the quatrefoil design, as you can imagine (hehe!). By the way, thanks for linking to my post -- so sweet of you! :) If you do end up going with that design, I would love to feature it on my blog.

    I love all of these fabrics. You have really great taste! Can't wait to see what you choose!

Exploring the Upper Peninsula...and a Few Yummies

I am going to make this short...because I am desperately trying to be more intentional with my time.  Spending less of it on my phone or com...
