UncategorizedThe Dressing Table September 5, 2012Thank y’all so much for your sweet comments about the bedroom. I loved it and it’s exciting to hear y’all did too! Today, I want to share a little more detail about my dressing table. I love seeing this as soon as I walk in the door. It feels like my little personal space. Obviously, Chris doesn’t really use this table 🙂 This feels like it’s been a long time coming too, probably because it has. I first posted about this table here. If you look at the date, you’ll see that I wrote that initial post over a year ago! It has taken that long to get the stool ready and everything fully set up. Granted, for a while now, I’ve been trying to decide about redecorating the room and I knew that would affect how I finished all of this. As a reminder, here’s a before picture of the table: And now: I recovered the stool in this fabric from Wal-mart. It was $2.00 a yard, and I only needed half a yard, so that was awesome. Plus, I liked how it looked with the rug. And an up-close shot of the fabric. I love the vintage feel of it. Vintage florals make me happy 🙂 I knew I wanted to display, but also organize my jewelry here so that I could access it more easily. I got this necklace hanger at Old Time Pottery for $9.00 years ago, but it was brown. I sprayed it white and love how it turned out. Do y’all remember the horse paint by number that I found on the yard sale? I LOVE IT! Chris doesn’t so much so I put it over on my side of the room. I also got the wooden jewelry stand from the yard sale. Along with some white bowls, I stored some of my other jewelry. In the little silver pitcher, I store my makeup brushes so they’re ready and accessible. I love having this little area designated for “getting ready.” Is it a necessity? No…but it sure is fun and girly!
