Sheer Vanity

What's It Wednesday #168


This Spring I have been super busy working on decorating projects for the master bedroom and bath. 

My last project was this gallery wall on my husband's side of the room that I featured on the Pretty as a Picture post.

It was finally time for my side of the room. This has been a planning project in the works for months. I had been on Houzz and fell in love with the idea of a vanity instead of a night stand. (Shhhhhhh! you can see the next project in the mirror - my reading nook)

She was actually harder to find then I thought. She had to be the right height since I am quite tall. I learned that it was better to find one with a stool. I wanted it to be the right color and the right price. 

It was love at first sight. She met all the specs I was looking for. It took a few months to find her but she was worth the struggle of looking for her. The added bonus was that she came with a tri-fold mirror instead of a one piece mirror. She has five drawers which is more then I will ever need.

I lost her 3 times. As soon as it was in stock it would sell out in a matter of hours because of course you know at first I hemmed and hawed and hesitated. I finally asked for an email alert of when it would be back in stock. That last time I was ready to pounce and 3 days later she was delivered home. The delivering included free shipping. I was thrilled.

She was everything all the reviewers said she was and more. Immediately I dolled her up with an orchid, picture, clock, vanity mirrored tray and other accessories.

Now hubby won't complain about me hogging up all the space in the bathroom to put on makeup.

I am so excited to have her by my side. To find the right dressing table I was motivated by sheer vanity.

So Charming!

What's It Wednesday #167
We are quickly approaching June, the month of so many weddings that it gives Valentine’s Day a run for its money when it comes to love and romance.

But before the big day arrives, there are all those bridal showers and wedding parties. An old tradition that’s making its way back, are cake charms, and they’re just perfect for the occasion!

From the late 1800’s through the 1930’s socializing parties were very popular and many charms and fortunes dealing with romance and predicting a mate were incorporated into parties.

The charm is placed within the cake and a ribbon is attached for pulling. (I added a little bling to help the guest along!) Each draw has a different meaning. You might want to type out the meaning and attach it along with the charm. It’s a fun party favor and sweet memento of the event.

Some familiar charms are the baby carriage, heart for new romance, wedding bells, horseshoe for luck, a ship for travel and of course the proverbial “old maid”!

I’ve been collecting them whenever I run across them.

Many are still on their original cards or in boxed sets. My favorites are going into my latest project that I’m just TOO excited about, so be sure to come back and check it out!
Hugs,
Patti

Chairished Decor

What's It Wednesday #166


One of the Mother's Day gifts I got for my Mom is actually for my house. :-)

My mom said that when she spends the night over she would love for there to be a chair in the Guest Bathroom for her to sit when getting dressed. For the last six months I had been searching for the perfect solution. 


As you know, I have been spending quite a bit of time at Ikea. On one of my visits, low and behold what do I see on display? A bamboo chair with a ladder on the back for towels. The RÅGRUND chair with towel rack was the perfect solution. 

There is a shelf on the bottom of the chair. I found a basket in my stash and loaded it with fabulous smelling lotions, herbal soaps, moisturizing body wash, plush wash cloths, and an extra roll of toilet paper. 


All of the bath products, including the shower cap, for my mom to pamper herself during her visits I found at Marshalls. My mom has already requested one of these chairs for her bathroom at home. I guess I have to make a trip back to Ikea. Ahhh Shucks! 

Do you have a bathroom idea that you chairish, I mean cherish?
