Roomy Vanity Yes, a starlet uses one to prep for her close-up, but vanities are good for more than just, well, vanity. They store toiletries and keep jewelry organized (and having one means never fishing your mascara out of the sink). Most for-sale styles look a bit too glamour girl, but this smart, modern table is just right. You're welcome, dahhhhling. Gather nightstands, plate glass, frames, and mirrors.
A vintage medicine cabinet takes on a more glamorous role with ease. Refurbished and hung in the bedroom, an old wooden cabinet -- found at a flea market or yard sale -- is just the right size to stash jewelry, perfume, and other accoutrements. We lined a mirror-fronted chest with pink velvet and added dowels and decorative hardware.
Use this old rustic ladder for country decorating. We have a nice selection right now. You might want to email me to find out what is available. Some are painted with years of drippings to add history and character. They have been cut down from early 1900 long farm ladders. EXAMPLE: 4 rung ladders and measure approximately 4' long. 5 rung ladders are 5' long. 6 rung ladders are 6' long....
Thigmotrope Satellite is a beautiful tool for creating vertical gardens. These steel Thigmotrope Satellites are designed to be screwed into a wall and hold tillandsia air plants (not included). They can also be mounted on horizontal surfaces. Add tillandsia air plants, place in bright natural light, and you can cultivate vertical gardens in otherwise hard-to-reach places: that bright wall in the living room, under a skylight, or next to the kitchen window.
We made a big score this weekend while on our weekly garage sale hunt – a dresser complete with a mirror, for only $20. I don’t know many folks that actually use the dresser mirrors anymore in a bedroom, but in days yore it must have been a hot commodity since we see them everywhere. We’ve actually had one before but kept it in storage until we sold the whole set – and even the buyers weren’t sure what to do with the mirror, but as it was part of the condition of the sale they reluctantly took it. As I mentioned back on the post about the wood filled fireplace last month, we contemplated moving the fireplace up as part of the master bedroom makeover . We finally made the move this past weekend and Whitney’s been trying to find some way to decorate the space with items we’ve picked up over the year.
