My Dressing Table

 

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about wanting to give my bedroom a make over. I can finally announce Phase I as complete! haha I still want to do a lot more in there, but the biggest piece of the puzzle is done, which is my dressing table! If you've been reading my blog for at least a year (anyone?), you'll remember I used to house and do all my make up on my little bedside table. So, finally having a proper house and space for all of it feels like a huge luxury!

I, of course, went for the ever so popular Malm dressing table! I love the design of it, it's so simple and modern. I originally wanted the Ingolf chair to go with it, but ended up going with the stool just because it was cheaper! I checked before ordering and it is the same height as the chair, so it's all good. I put it all together myself while the husband was away and I had a harder time building the stool than the table, how weird is that? haha

I went for this Argos desk lamp cause it's got a bit of an industrial feel to it, which is very modern and I think goes perfectly with the dressing table. It is specially useful for when I'm doing my make up at night, I still want to get another one to put on the right! The little pot I use for my brushes AND the small dish I use for my jewellery are both from Next Home and I adore them both! I love having my most used jewellery out like that, as I always forget to put them on before leaving the house, so having them right in front of me is very helpful! haha

The best part about this has got to be the mirror and the "deal" I got on it. I was LITERALLY on my way to Argos to buy a £40 mirror, walking down the high street, when I decided to first go into TK Maxx and check if they had any other nice accessories I might like and then I saw this mirror! It was love at first sight and it only cost me £24! How lucky am I?? haha

And if you ever wondered who the woman in the picture frame is, that's Carla Bruni! I loved that image from her campaign for Bvlgari, so I put it up there. Is that weird? My husband thinks so! haha

If you have a similar post to this on your blog, I would love to see it! Leave your links below! x

  3. This is such a beautiful setup you have here! I currently store all my makeup in a set of clear drawers (similar to the Muji ones only more drawers and slightly bigger) on my bedroom floor and it's such a nuisance! The Ikea Malm dressing table is definitely on my wishlist, but I'm waiting to move out of my parents' place to buy one and fully invest in doing up my room. I really can't wait for that day! As a makeup junkie, I definitely need the space!
