Shabby Vintage Vanity Table Selections and Bedroom Decorating Ideas
A vintage vanity table with a mirror and stool is practically a "must have" in a girl's shabby chic bedroom. Even when decorating a small bedroom where floor space is at a premium, a vanity set with a comfortable has many benefits beyond being just a makeup table with a mirror that can be used when girls are dressing for school or for a date out on the town.

Shabby chic bedroom vanity tables can be found at flea markets or estate sales often with damaged hardware, broken mirrors and chipped, distressed paint.
The sparkling white paint finish that was applied so many years ago has aged and mellowed into a warm, antique or off-white patina. In a vintage bedroom, chipped crackling paint is not a problem.
A slightly distressed furniture finish not only a non-issue in a shabby chic room; it's desirable! However, there are times when the chippy paint or the color just isn't right. Sanding in strategic areas may fix the problem.
Another option is to add decorative painting to complement the bedroom's color scheme.
A broken, vintage vanity table mirror can also be tricky to replace since a shining, new mirror looks odd against the distressed appearance of the surrounding frame. Before buying a replacement, consider visiting the local antique dealer to see if an old mirror that is not so perfect can be found and cut to fit.
If the mirror of your vanity table is broken or missing, simply hang a shabby chic mirror on the wall behind the vanity table. It's the ideal solution that will actually give a teenage girl more room for her makeup, jewelry and laptop rather than purchasing a separate computer desk.
As accepting as we are with cosmetic flaws, functional failure isn't to be tolerated. What good is a dressing table or makeup vanity with a broken mirror or missing crystal or glass drawer pulls?
Replace the old knobs with reproduction glass drawer pulls to give the furniture a new look and to make it functional again.
