The cutest! Little girl's vanity built from pine and painted two tone blush pink. So adorable. 

Plans modified from the mila vanity plan.  I used a jig saw to cut out the mirror board backing from 3/4 plywood to mimic an antique vanity.  I purchased the laser wood frame from Michael's and attached with gorilla glue.  I used a plastic mirror material that could be cut to fit the frame.  Remember to spread your glue very thin on the back of the mirror material or it will mildly distort the reflection if it is not perfectly smooth.  

I added a vanity board in the knee space that I also cut with a jig saw from a 1x4 board.  I copied that pattern for the back of the stool.  I used Ana's kids art center stool plan for that. 

The crates are made using wood lathe scraps and a piece of 1x6 scrap.  

The paint on the vanity is Rustoleums chalked paint in Blush.  The laser cut wood frame, crates  and stool are Krylon spray paint in Blush Gloss.
