*Holly Paint*

 So here is the story on this latest furniture makeover.

In September my good friend, Kelly, found out she had breast cancer.  
With Chemo treatments, medicines, and doctor visits her bills are adding up...
so I got to thinkin'... 
and realized I could makeover and sale a piece of furniture to help with her medical bills.

I bought this Solid Maple Vanity that was listed on Craigslist 
knowing the potential it had.  
I thought about painting it pink-for breast cancer awareness- but something inside kept pushing towards all white.  So I went with my "inner voice."

Well... I think the white turned out Lovely!  So simple and perfect.

I realized that I had this white and pink chair in my garage so I throwing it as a own little way of getting pink and -Breast Cancer Awareness- into the piece!

If you want to read Kelly's amazing blog please go check out My Honest Walk she shares her everyday struggles and insight with her battle against breast cancer. 
Be prepared to be inspired!
