Friday Furniture – Goodwill Vanity


This classic beauty our daughter found at the Goodwill.


( Not the best after picture with the BBQ grill in the background :/ )

This is what it looked like when we picked it up.

We loved the burled wood on the front of the drawers but it was in horrible shape :(

Our hope was to restore this little beauty back to her original self.

We got on-line and found some burled white ash on e-bay and snatched it up.

We removed the trim and old laminate.

Attached the new stained laminate by applying some wood glue and rolling with a vinyl floor roller.

And attached the re-finished trim.

  1. Beautiful job! I love the sexy curviness of this piece! It looks fantastic!

  2. Wow! You're like a Hollywood plastic surgeon for aged wooden furniture! I love it when someone takes the time to bring an piece of wooden furniture back to it's former glory!

    1. Thanks Becky! LOL! Steve does have some great talent! I never thought of it that way! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. So glad you were able and wanted to bring this beautiful piece back to it's original self. What a shame it would have been to see it trashed even more than it had been. What an absolutely exquisite job you did. Very talented, so glad for a wonderful old piece. Glad you left the wood to show also.
