I wanted to give you all a little insight into some aspects of my room. I get asked a lot to do a room tour but I don't feel 100% comfortable with bearing my whole bedroom to you all, although I certainly don't mind doing little posts like these where you can see different bits and bobs which may help to inspire some of you. So, this is my dressing table, or make up station, or as it's better known, "my desk that doesn't get used for officey-type things so I've filled it full of makeup & beauty items". My grandad made it for me many moons ago, I painted it cream & changed the handles to make it a little more girly.

Ceramic Rose Handles - Homebase
Cream drawers to the left - Ikea (Painted cream & used the remnants of my wallpaper to cover the sides)
Wallpaper - Leekes Linda Barker
Silver drawers to the right - TKMaxx (Brilliant for bedroom storage)
Large Mirror against wall - Bootsale & handpainted
Small Antique Mirror - Bootsale
Light up Mirror - Boots
Flower Lights - BHS
China Saucers - Bootsale
Mosaic Flower Pot - Bootsale
Small China Vase with handle - Bootsale
Small cream & gold Jewellery Box - My Nan gave me this

  9. If your brushes are always exposed it's important to clean them once a week :) I have mine in clear plastic drawers and I line them with tissue so that they aren't exposed to dust n all that and they stay clean all the time.

  147. Hi, I doubt you're even going to see this but that's ok. I just wanted to say that I love how you put your own twist to basic things, like the little drawer from IKEA, and the wallpaper on the sides was a really nice touch! Also, I went with my mom to a garage sale, which is something like a carboot sale. You were right, when you said (in an older post) that it is a way to bond with your mom. I had so much fun with her and I also got to pick up some cute things as well. so, thank you for encouraging your followers to do that.
    Have a nice day!
