A little while ago,my husband had a moan to me about the state of my dressing table. I'm not a naturally tidy person, and seeing as my dressing table is (obviously) the place I put on my makeup before hurrying out of the door each day, it was a bit of a sight for sore eyes.
I'm not tidy, but I do like things to be pretty, so what better excuse did I need to make a couple of orders for a few beautiful but practical things to help me tidy up and redesign the space I had? Any excuse for some shopping!
I wanted to complement the beachy, whitewashed unit that we'd recently bought from Ikea so went with a shabby chic look.

To house cotton wool, I found this ever so cute jar via Dot Com Gift Shop
My ever-growing collection of perfumes sit on a glass tray I found in a homeware shop in Sheffield.

I wanted a large mirror, but something a bit different. I hit on the idea of a vintage pub mirror, and just as I was about to buy one, my Mum said she had this little beauty hidden away in the attic.
The "home" sign is another DotCom gift shop bargain at just £1!
Bunny Light- Dot Com Gift Shop
Wicker Baskets- eBay (mine are no longer in stock but similar here and I've also seen some pretty ones in Tesco!)
I'm slightly obsessed with my new bunny light- Matt hates it and I'm sure it isn't to everyone's taste but he certainly adds a smile to my face and a little bit more kitch to my dressing table!
I bought two white wicker baskets with Cath- Kidston esque lining from eBay to house my makeup more neatly:
SO there we have it- one redesigned dressing table and a happy husband! I must admit I love it and I'm very proud of myself for keeping it so tidy (so far!)
I'm always curious to see other people's homes- if you've done or seen a similar post please leave me a link!
