I finally scratched my itch to start working with wood and although I’ve made my workbench and shop stool, this is my first project with a finished coat.
I made this makeup vanity table out of pine, finished with a Glossy black Stain and Poly in-one for my amazing bride. It’s not showroom quality, but I am very pleased with how it turned out. I even got to have my first go-around with a little 6.5” planer, which I’ve never used.. was awesome!
I actually was going to frame my own mirror for it, but found a black medicine cabinet on clearance for $19 and just bolted it right up. Now my wife has more room to put all her “stuff” as opposed to the bathroom, bedroom, living room, dining room, other bathroom.. well.. you get the idea :) I even threw some extra pieces of pine on the sides with hooks for her to hang her hair dryer and curling irons and stuff. Eventually, I’ll find a piece of glass or acrylic to fasten to the table top and put pictures of the kiddos and family underneath. There is a stool I made with it not pictured.. very simple; just 4×4 legs to match the table with a cedar seat pan. Needless to say, momma is happy!
Feels great to have a finished project under my belt and can move on to the next idea.. A wall-mounted cabinet for my Fly Fishing gear!
