My wife and I recently worked together on a project for our 9 year old god daughter. Her mother informed us that she could use a vanity to start keeping her “girl” stuff in. We started with a simple idea on paper. Then moved onto initial construction. Stained the piece. Of course it needed a mirror. And finally got finished in time for Christmas. Oh, yea. We made and upholstered the stool as well. We used some of your finishing tips (used a wipe on varnish for the first time) and are very happy with results.
