My Dressing Room

I'm finally revealing my dressing room.  Can you believe it? I posted about converting one of our guest bedroom into a dressing room/office space here.   Anyway, this is where I get ready every morning.   Without further ado I present you my very own dressing room.

*I forgot to snap some before photo of the room but we painted the walls Benjamin Moore Feather Grey*

Most of my stuff are still in our walk in closet.  Here I'm just hanging some of my favorite pieces!

more shoes

And the whole thing was done on a major budget, like the rest of the place. The only thing I bought  full-price ( well almost it was on sale plus I found a 10% coupon online) was the mirrored vanity table.  Everything else was previously owned or  sale purchases. Without a doubt my most favorite thing in the room is the owl jewelry holder from Urban Outfitters.   Overall, I'm really pleased with how this little space turned out.  Any thoughts? :)

Mirror Vanity Table- Pier1 Imports

Storage Shelve- Home Depot
Clothing Racks- Target
Owl Tray- Urban Outfitter
Hand Astrological Jewelry Stand- Urban Outfitter
Frames- Ikea and Michaels
Floor length mirror- Home Good
Chevron Rug- RugsUSA
Art Poster- Holstee

Its very hard to photograph the whole room so I film a room tour for you guys. Enjoy!

Great idea on using coffee beans to keep your makeup brushes standing, I'm sure the scent must be heavenly as well.

This looks fantastic Mai. I'm very jealous wishing I could have a dressing room now - I certainly have enough clothes to fill one! Oh well, maybe one day, and in the meantime I can look at yours :) xx
