For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted a dressing table in my bedroom. I’ve trawled the charity shops and Ebay and also asked friends to keep a look out for anything they thought would be suitable. I wasn’t really that fussy, but I knew that I wanted something that would add the vintage touch to my room.
I found a gorgeous vnitage dressing table on Ebay, with plenty of storage and a huge mirror! The seller was not too far from me and the listing was ending on new years eve so I knew I had a great chance of winning the auction for a great price. I sat there as it was ending and I put in a maximum bid of £11 and I WON!
Once I had the dressing table home, I began to upcycle it. I chose to go with a cream paint and a dark wood, the same as I have done with all of the furniture in our bedroom. It looked so flawless when I had finished I was so proud as it had taken me a whole weekend to perfect!
I was then contacted by JD Williams, who asked if I would like to try some new bedding and I thought it was a great opportunity to add something to my newly arranged bedroom. On going to their website, I was really surprised to see that they had such a wide range of different bedding sets, there was literally something for any type of theme or feel, and it took me a while to choose which one I really wanted. I knew I had to get something that added the vintage touch to the room along with my new dressing table.
I decided to choose the Josie Duvet cover set, £30 and the Josie Bedspread, £50. What I loved about this bedding was that it is reversible and already has colours in which match my Jeff Banks curtains and other sheets and bedding that I already have. I think it looks amazing on the bed. Having the bedspread means we can be extra warm and cosy when it’s freezing but then in the summer month we can use it to stay nice and cool too!
I just really wish you got more pillowcases and a sheet when buying a bedding set, James and I definitely use more than just one pillow each! These weren’t available to buy extra either so I’m going to try and find some plain coloured ones that match!
I’m really pleased with how my room has turned out. My new dressingtable has given me some much needed space for my tonnes of makeup and skincare. The bedding fits in really well and I love how it adds a little something special to my bedroom. It may look very small from the pictures, but I’m actually lucky that I have a really big bedroom, so there is lots of space that is not shown in the pictures, as well as an ensuite.
What do you think to my rearranging? do you think my new bedding and dressing table add the vintage touch?
