Dressing Table Tour


My dressing table is looking pretty much how I want it to look nowadays, so as the sun was shining at the weekend I decided that it was about time I took some photos of it to share here.


Like most other bloggers I have the famous acrylic drawers, though I have jazzed mine up a little with washi tape, I think that the washi tape softens up the look and just makes it generally prettier. The Cath Kidston tin holds my bobbles and hair grips.


For make-up brush holders I use an old curry sauce jar wrapped in lace with a bit of jute string tied around the top and this pen holder from Dunelm. I also keep my pretty vintage bottles in this section along with a fake flower from IKEA.


On top of the drawer on the right side I keep my memorabilia, aka, tat. I have the badges from mine and my friends hen parties, a badge from my Wedding, a glittery lamp that I bought on Honeymoon along with two lucky stones, one in the shape of a Scarab that was given to me as a gift and the other is literally a lump of stone that we were given on honeymoon, a special type of stone though, I'm not that random. 


This Beauty Box from Dunelm comes in very handy, if I didn't have this my dressing table would be a constant mess with items left all over it, now I just throw them in here instead!


You may have noticed the pretty flowers around my mirror, the pink flower garland, this always used to be wrapped around my headboard but our new bed has a solid headboard so there is nothing to wrap them around, and when they are just placed there Bob steals them! The yellow and multi-coloured flower hairbands came from Rewind Festival last year and the white crown from Prairie Charms. 


My Helmer sits next to my dressing table and houses some of my prettier looking perfumes along with a message in a jar that I received from Spencer for our first Wedding anniversary, a decorative bottle and the tin from the Benefit Christmas gift set that I treated myself to in the January sales.

I am planning on decoupaging this Helmer soon like I did my other one but this time with a chevron print. (my version of soon can be months so don't expect any posts just yet!).

My dressing table is probably the part of my house that I am most proud of, which part of your house do you take the most pride in?

  3. What a gorgeous set up. I was actually drawn to the "and they lived happily ever after" sign dangling off the wire heart photo holder - I actually have that exact sign dangling off a very similar one myself!
