Sneak Peek progress for my Impossibility Challenge

Yes, I actually started on my huge project that you can read about here! I thought I would go with the sewing first as I thought that might take the longest. So I eyed the vanity and decided what fabric I had in my stash that looked similar to my inspiration vanity......

And I came up with this.........
 So that's what I used for the top ruffle, I choose unbleached muslin for the main skirt. After adding a lining to the muslin I sewed velcro onto the inside of the skirt and stapled the other part of the velcro to the vanity table. Here's a pic sewing the velcro on......
Then I used my gathering foot on my sewing machine to ruffle the floral fabric then sewed it to the main skirt.

Here is just a sneak peek of what it looks like velcroed to the vanity.....

I also started painting an old trifold mirror I've had forever to go on top of the vanity.....

Still not completely done with the vanity skirt but I'm getting closer. I need to kick things in to high gear if I'm going to finish everything by the end of the month, whew!


  1. Way to go Teresa - I haven't even started my impossible challenge. I think I work better under pressure....LOL. The skirt for your vanity is so pretty! Can't wait to see it all finished,

  2. Oh, wow. That is going to be so beautiful! I love the delicate floral print the the mirror.

  3. You started! I'm so impressed with you! It's all very well writing the list...but actually DOING them?! It's another thing altogether- WELL DONE!!


  4. It looks like you're off to a great start on your project!
    My paint is from Kelly you have those paint stores where you are? I *think* Home Depot colorants are similar...

  5. Just found your blog at Mobile Home Living... you're doing a great job! Great Blog and Great Inspiration!

  6. Oh that is going to be darling. I love that fabric. The inspiration picture is to die for. Can't wait to see it.

  7. I love your blog! I love what you're doing with this vanity, it's going to be gorgeous! I love what you did with your kitchen, your bathrooms, your den - all just magically transformed with your artistic hand! I'd love for you to visit me sometime if you'd like. Hugs ~ Mary
