So, my girlfriend was looking for a vanity and asked if I’d help her find some alternatives to the pricey options she’s seen online. She sent over the first picture below as inspiration and I did some additional searching myself on Pinterest and Craigslist. I’ve come up with quite a few reasonable options that just need a little TLC, paint, and updated hardware.

This vintage writing desk is $50. I love the curved shape and detailed edges along the top and bottom. I would sand it down and paint it a light gray or turquoise.
This desk for $45 has some great lines to it. It definitely needs a paint job and some new handles. It’d look cute with some extra details like stripped on the drawers and I love these handles from Anthropologie (although they’d cost more than the desk!).
This vanity is listed for $80 and is another cute one with great shapes. Perfect for a smaller space than some of the other options above.
Gotta love Craigslist, so many great deals to be found with just a little digging and some elbow grease.
