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.

I had a vanity when I was a teenager, and I've always wanted another. They really do help gather all your things in one spot, plus, its such a pretty way to treat yourself. Your vanity is beautiful with a classic design that will last for years!

I've always loved the idea of using a non-traditional piece of furniture as a nightstand, and in fact did just that in a bedroom in the past. Having a vanity definitely serves double duty! It's beautiful and yes, it was worth the wait.

Terra said...

Your new vanity and its mirrors are very pretty and elegant, and I like the classy photo gallery on the wall that you created.

Love vanities! Especially as I get older it would be nice to sit while fixing myself up--esp since the process itself now takes longer lol!

Love the gallery wall, I too have been wanting to do just that on the side wall of my master bedroom, but better yet is that vanity of beauty. What a place that beauty can be at hand. Love your space Paula, a space to love.

Thank you Patti, for taking the time this early Morning to share some of your visiting time with me, your comment and visit was a big joy!

I would love to do a gallery wall like this, perhaps one with a bank of old canvases?
Have a great week with all the newness it inspires for you.
