I made these vanities as Christmas presents for my grandaughters. They are made from poplar and birch plywood. I gave my vanities two coats of primer and at two two coats of an oil based white semi gloss paint. Lots of protection for many years of playin dress up!
Patty added “rub on decals” butterflies to the left one and daiseys made with a hard foam stamp with paint on it. Arianna like butterflies and Gabby like dasieys.
I included a pic of me squating next to it so you can scale the size, if you’d like to make your own, you can see how I made mine here:
Thanks for looking!

Having three daughters myself, I can imagine your grandaughters were quite excited to get these! They look fantastic. Did you incorporate some sort of storage in the bench as well?

Good looking project. I have two granddaughter that are 7 months old. This gives me plenty of time to get both ready by Christmas. Thanks again for the ideal.
