ONWARD WITH MY BEDROOM!!!
Let us continue where we left off....
Last we checked in.....
I was regaling you with tales from the left side of my bed.
No, No, No, No, No......
Shame on you guys!!!!!
I'm talkin' decoratin' stories here!!!!!
Now that we've restored a little decorum,
(Well as much as can be expected
on this here blog.....)
Let me show you my dressing table.
I would like to point out at this juncture,
I DON'T USE THIS TABLE!!!!!
But I like to look at it....,
To me, no bedroom is really a girly girl bedroom without a dressing table.
Since I rarely wear makeup anymore,
and when I do, I put it on leaning over my sink.....
I have no real need for this piece of furniture, except that it holds all my fake jewelry.
It's good to have a place to store stuff that I never wear.....
(I used to wear it, can't be bothered, but it's
MINE, MINE, MINE,
and I'm not sharing!!!!!)
I found this table in a local junky antique multi-vendor store.
But it went out of business, and I am still in mourning.
When I bought it, I thought that I may paint it, but I love the way the wood looks in the room.
It's another nice old 1920's Louis XVI piece that just sucked me in.
This is my favorite period for furniture.
It works really well in my bedroom because it is so shallow (17") that it doesn't take up much floor space, but still has a big visual impact.
I like the way the brass detailing combines the table, chair and mirror.
The mirror was one of those purchases that I made, thinking it looked tacky, but would hold me over until I found something better.
When I got it home and put it in place,
hit me over the head with a decorating book!!!!!
I LOVED IT!!!!!
The scale, style and metal, all married so well.
WHO WOULD A THUNK IT????
Even old burnt out decorators get surprised by stuff.
Keep an open mind to things and you could save a little moolah!
True to form, I covered the top of the table with stuff I never use.....
Especially perfume bottles.
I LOVE PERFUME BOTTLES!!!!!
What wonderful accessories.....
They is soooooo pretty!!!!!
BUT I NEVER WEAR PERFUME.......
I wear Eau De Ban!!!!!
Bear with me, it's hard taking a picture, shooting into a window.......
This pare of bottles I got from my Mom.
Don't let my two sisters know.
They're supposed to read this blog, but they never do.
This'll teach em!!!!
These bottles were on my Mom's dressing table when we grew up.
We all love them.
Now they're mine, mine, mine!!!!!
I found the pair of vanity lamps on.....
I love mirror based lamps.
They go with the sconces I hung over my bed....
I have a real weakness for etched glass like this.
It is sooooooooo pruty!!!!!
Even the lamp stem is etched!!!!!
The lampshades are smocked like those over my bed.
Talk about your stunning detail!!!!!
These babies are hand sewn.
that's the story of my dressing table.
This room gets more and more exciting!!!!!
So stay tuned
