My dressing table




I don't think I need to write a lot about my dressing table :) I photographed every single corner of it to show you :) I painted most of my pine furniture white recently, including my dressing table and chair and I love the final effect. You can see in the last picture in the mirror that there is still a chest of drawers waiting to be painted :) That was the original colour of all my furniture and I hated it. It looks lovely and fresh now and I can't wait to finish my full dressing room and maybe do a room tour :) We will see. I hope you enjoyed the photos :) If you would like to know where I got some of the items from, just ask in the comments and I will reply asap :) PS. Zac was trying to pull everything off my dressing table when I was taking photos :) You can see his hand and hair in one of the pictures trying to get my brush jar :) Cheeky monkey ;)

    I don't have a dressing table at all (put makeup on while sitting on the bed hah!) so, think I have dressing table envy! :)

    1. I got it from my in-laws. It was quite old but in mint condition :) I think you can find a lot of similar pine furniture on ebay and it is quite cheap :)

    1. The brush pot is an empty candle jar filled with some old pearl necklaces :)

      I used normal white emulsion to paint all the furniture - but sanded it all first.

  35. I love it when people put the effort in to create dressing table! I, unfortunately, have yet to reach that point. All of my makeup is in a couple of separate, organized bags (One for day, one for night, one for the gym, one for travel, etc.) I don't let it bother me too much because I do a fair amount of traveling and my house is not my own, but one day I will have a table as gorgeous as yours!
