That is absolutely the perfect use for that vanity!!! Good save!! I love the sign and the extra touch of the beautiful white butterfly. Did you put potted plants in it? They are so lovely.

You get the prize for thinking outside the box (or flower pot) in this case. I love it, of course, what could be more frou-frou.

Very cute! Now you just need a matching stool planted with some ground cover. Love your little sign and the butterfly too. The flowers look gorgeous in there.

Did you paint the butterfly? I have seen them either rusty looking or brass. Can't remember seeing a white one. If you did, great idea!

Beautiful plant stand! Great recycling! I like how you put the wire mesh in it...& added the butterfly. Also like the opening (where the mirror used to be or whatever)...that you can see thru that area! Cute! Plants are beautiful! TFS! Jeanne S.

Really clever and VERY attractive! Great idea! Are you going to put live plants in it for the summer? It's a great recycle!

Well isn't that pretty!I wish I had your imagination. When I look at something like that in a store I just draw a blank.
I have been saving an old white metal bathtub rack (the kind with 4 tiers) to do something with. You have just given me a great idea. Hope you don't mind a copy cat of sorts.
Beautiful job. I realy like your choice of plants & flowers.
