I have always wanted to have a proper vanity in my bedroom but never thought I’d get to actually have one. Our previous apartment was a tiny cottage with a tiny bedroom to match. When we moved into where we are now I was so excited to realize there is plenty of space for a vanity. I did not plan to buy one this soon but sometimes you come across something too good to pass up. I found this beauty in the basement level of Park Street Antiques here in Alameda. I saw it a while back but swear that the price was drastically different before. Recently I was at the shop admiring it again and noticed it was actually a great price. Of course I obsessed over it that evening then raced back the next morning so I could buy it. They even knocked some off the price so I paid an even better price than I imagined. It cleaned up really nice. One major selling point for me was the matching stool with green upholstered cushion that is hinged so more can be stored in the seat. It has already been so nice having a full length mirror again. No more standing on a stool in the bathroom! Now my next search swill be for a lamp to go on the vanity. Something to look for at the next antiques faire February 3rd!
