a junky dressing room…

hi everyone:)  I wanted to share a couple things today. I’m working on turning a small bedroom into a dressing room. 
it’s not done, but, the basics will be a dressing table, some racks for clothes, hamper, dresser, a dressing screen, dress form and, a linens cabinet.
I bought this cart for a hamper.  I might paint it white, not sure yet.  using old rose print sheets, I sewed the liner and added a cute white ruffle to it.


here’s the new dresser, i didn’t have to do anything to it, just filled it up. love the legs, crystal knobs and distressing.

and my husband cut out my gothic shaped dressing screen. I plan on painting and wallpapering it.

  4. How cool that you can use rooms differently than the intended purpose. I have only been able to do that to a formal dining room by turning it into my office but I would love my great room to be my office/craft room like you have done. Crafting by the fire sounds wonderful!

  18. Your shopping cart looks absolutely charming with it's delicate lining! I've got a cart in my garage that I've toyed with using indoors, but I love it so much for hauling groceries in! I can't wait to see your screen finished, and that dresser is adorable. :)

  20. Your husband deserves kudos again! Can't wait to see the finished product. That dresser and hamper are adorable. Love what you did with the sheets and the ruffle! Makes me wonder why I have my cart like that sitting folded up in the garage. What a great idea.
