It's been a lovely lovely rainy weekend (we need it). And as always, my thoughts turn inward: who am I? And on my head is the topic of dressing tables/boudoirs.
We all need a spot to place our beauty jars, perfumes, pretty hair things, brooches, rings, earrings, nail polish.
And depending on our lifestyle and personality, we all need different "boudoirs"... (i.e. dressing tables).
Some of us need a pretty with capital P (and capital P for price)
Now defunct Domino
others need a simple furniture piece
others yet demand for drawers and drawers
some of those need their stuff spilling out those drawers and drawers
others like their drawers but like their surfaces clear.
Some of us who can afford it like a dedicated dressing alcove...
Some of us who choose to splurge on a luxurious dressing table and place it next to the bed...
Some of us like it in the bathroom!
I'm not talking presentation (i.e. colour, finish) but the style or type of boudoir-ing one needs to put on one's face in the morning.
While I would LOVE to be the sit-down-and-pretty-up-in-a-nice-dedicated-table-on-a-yellow-and-white-stool-type... I realise I'm not that type.
I'm more the simple type. The hoarder type. hehe
The stand up at my boudoir and throw stuff on and rush out the door type.
But I still like a pretty space.
So I repurposed a pretty white cabinet I got off eBay 2 years ago that used to be my craft cabinet and then bookcase.
A white cabinet much like the one in this gorgeous bedroom...
One day I might become a sit down one... like at Miss Pettigrew... but for now... this cupboard will do me just fine. (Pardon the super bright blue... t'will become a lovely watermelon soon.)
