Inspiration: all dressed up

Call me lazy, but I always like to sit when I get ready in the morning.  I'm not really much of a morning person and all that effort to stand while doing my makeup seems like such a waste of energy.   Haha, melodramatic much?  Me? noooo.

So, with that said, a dressing table was always very high on my wish list and I was so excited to find the perfect little number at Home Sense (also known as the blackhole for my wallet).  Isn't she pretty!?


I'm working on finding the perfect chair/stool and need to hang my mirror still, but I'll post a pic once she's all dressed up and ready to go.  But for now, here's a little peek into my inspiration folder.
