So my part of this story starts with my finding the vintage vanity at Wausau Pickers in Wausau Wisconsin. I fell in love with the vanity and wanted to rescue it from it’s sad neglected state. So I bought it and brought it home and we refinished it in a pearl metallic paint and added a new full length mirror. It is gorgeous I have to say. The day after I put it up for sale I was contacted by Patty. Her sister Peggy saw my post and showed her sister Patty the picture. Patty loves it and wants to buy it. So Patty buys the vanity and we get to talking. This vintage vanity is almost exactly like the one her mom had and her sister Peggy use to use when she was a teenager. Patty use to sit and watch her beautiful sister get ready in front of it. Patty didn’t know what happened to her family vanity. She bought the vintage vanity that we refinished because it brought back lovely memories for her. Patty was so excited she talked to her brother about it and he said he thought the one their sister had was in his garage. It had been there for years. So Patty and Peggy decide to ask me if we could look at it and decide if it can be saved. Today we delivered the vintage vanity that I bought and we refinished to Patty today. She says it is gorgeous and she is very happy. It means a lot to her to have one that looks like the one she grew up with. Then we went to Peggy’s house and looked at her family vanity. It is in very sad shape and needs a lot of work but I am willing to try to bring new life back to it. It is very similar to the one we did so if we can save it the sisters will have sister vanities. Peggy’s vanity will also be done in the pearl metallic color with silver knobs. I just hope we can keep all the details. This makes me so happy saving old pieces and giving them a new life and new home with people to cherish them and maybe pass them down through out the years. Patty has a new grandchild coming so you never know if another little girl will grow up into a woman in front of the vintage vanity we rescued. The Vintage family vanity had 7 layers of paint on it. Termite damage and an animal nest in one Drawer. The mirrors were all damaged and one mirror had kiss prints where Patty had kissed the mirror as a teenager. One applique had to be replaced. We repaired as much as possible and painted it in the pearl metallic with silver wax on the details. So the vintage family vanity is finished and delivered. The picture at the top is the finished vanity. It turned out amazing and both Peggy and Patty love it. I also framed the kiss mark that was on the old mirror and gave it to Peggy. It was really lovely meeting Patty and Peggy and their husband’s. They are all very sweet people. We are very happy we could save this family treasure.
