The Geneva Vanity - Before & After

I spoke of this sweet Geneva Vanity the other day. She is the sister piece to the Genevieve Dresser and is just as wonderful and beautiful and even comes with her own mirror!
This could not only be used as a vanity but would work well as a desk. Its chunky curvy legs mimic the curve of the front of the dresser.
The keyholes on the drawers remind us that this piece is nearly 100 years old. I wonder what was carefully hidden in them so long ago.
The solid mirror can either be attached or hung directly on the wall. It has a few imperfections which only add to its age and beauty.
And like the Genevieve Dresser this can be seen at The Old Flamingo at 3474 South 2300 East in Salt Lake City.
Happy Tuesday!
