American Girl Bathroom Vanity

I absolutely love how this vanity turned out! My doll needed a place to paint her nails and do her makeup, and this is the perfect thing!  I split this DIY project into two parts because I didn’t want anyone to get confused on the cut list.  This way it’s easier to follow two separate posts when creating your perfect American Girl Bathroom Vanity.
