Vintage Dressing Table
I hope you have had a good week, I can’t quite believe that the children are back to school next week and that the summer holidays are drawing to a close. Although it is like a new chapter of the year is starting, with lots of exciting things to look forward to, I’m a little sad that summer is nearly over!
So, here is the final post from my bedroom reveal, and this corner contains one of my favourite vintage finds from last year. I knew I wanted a really pretty dressing table, so when I saw this beauty at a local auction, I pounced! I had luck on my side as one of the side triptych mirrors had a crack all the way across, which I think put people off. I managed to get the glass replaced and I painted it in French Grey by the Little Greene Paint Company. I love its elegant proportions, plus I finally have lots of drawers to hide away my clutter in.
The beautiful capiz shell chandelier in the corner has an interesting story behind it. When I first moved to Norwich about 13 year ago, we had an Oasis clothing shop in the old shopping mall. One season, this chandelier was part of their window display, and I asked the staff if I could buy it when they had finished with it – they said yes! I think I paid about £30 – £40 for it. I think it fits in this corner beautifully.
Have a wonderful weekend!
