Before & After...Vanity Tray Makeover

Hello friends and....

I hope you are all doing well. I'm actually feeling pretty lousy today and came home early. I was able to get a half day sub for my class. I'm really hoping to feel better tomorrow. I think this incessant pollen finally got to me. Anywho, I figured I might as well put up a blog post while I'm being lazy. 

If you saw my post earlier this week, you may remember this adorable little vanity tray I picked up while thrifting Saturday.

The gold finish was beyond help so I decided to give it a coat of paint. I went with white which is my favorite lately. I love how it turned out!

I placed it on my vanity in my bedroom. It was the perfect home for this adorable little mercury glass vase with a silk rose. I picked this up a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx for $3.99 I believe. The love sentiment was a Target Dollar spot item. I believe it was $3. So...$9 for this sweet little vignette that makes me happy.

I love the pretty details of the frame. My beautiful Kendra Scott necklace looks perfect on the tray. Miranda bought it for me for Christmas. :)

Here is my vanity...a little cluttered I know. When we remodel our bedroom, we are going to build some shelves to house some of the books I keep in my room. Most of my Bibles, devotional, self help, and school related reads are kept in here, along with my Kindle. This is just a few of them. I have BIG plans for our small master bedroom redo and can't wait to get started on it.

I think it turned out so pretty.

Isn't this little compact sweet? My mother in law gave it to me for Christmas along with a couple other things. She knows I love turtles and has given me a few turtle themed items over the years. This one is so pretty!

I know this was a short post. Hopefully I will have more to share soon. I need to go finish supper...chicken Caesar salad. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend.
Until next time.....


  1. I just purchased 4 vanity trays to re-sell. I may have to try painting one like you did to see if it sells.

  2. Yes, that compact IS sweet, and very unique!

    Lovely redo on the tray too:

  3. I love those mirror trays painted white. I have two in my bedroom. Your display is lovely and so elegant! Hope you feel better. Tiger was home yesterday with allergy stuff also. Hugs!

  4. I love your mirrored tray. It turned out lovely.

  5. So pretty! I like the white paint also. Feel better!

  6. Your vanity tray looks fabulous in white. The whole display is so pretty. I have a thing for vanity trays and can't pass one by when I see them. They are good sellers in both my shops. One I picked up is silver and not very pretty. I think I am going to paint it! Why didn't I think of that!?

  7. Wow Vicky you certain took that tray from trash to treasure, what a difference, Great Job! Your Christmas compact is gorgeous, what a unique and lovely gift. I like turtles, too :)
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
    Connie :)

  10. It looks great Vicky! You did a wonderful job. The pollen has been awful here too, the patio is yellow. Yuck. Hope you're feeling better.

  11. I am always amazed at the things you find and then how you repurpose them.

  12. Your vanity tray really turned out nice and you created a very lovely vignette with it.

  13. The tray turned out so nice, love how you decorated it with all the feminine touches :)
