Dressing Table

I suck as far as before shots are concerned these days, huh?
This lovely dressing table (which wasn’t so lovely at the time) came home with me weeks ago and has been sitting pretty, waiting patiently for me to even take an after shot. It feels good to check it off my list and give her the attention she deserves!

My chairs have temporarily gone back downstairs so she can greet us when we walk in the door.
Photobucket She also has a beautiful, mottled and mercuried mirror, my favorite characteristic in an old mirror.

But I think I like her better without!
This is a really cheap and easy way to re-arrange art, all I did was attach a piece of knotted twine to the back with duct tape (yes, I am fully aware my obsession with twine is borderline scary). And voila! Now I can alternate any of my art in here. I am even debating installing a wall of hooks in my office for this reason alone. But I can’t seem to shake the thought that it would just look weird in there.

Now, if you happen to have any warm thougths floating around your brain today feel free to send them our way! We are off to take our boat out at the lake and while Wren and I will be nice and toasty the poor boys will most likely get both cold and wet out there~

  1. I want one too! And twine, lots and lots of twine. What a great idea for picture hanging – I am going to steal it if that is okay? Don't know where I will use it as my house is the size of a baby shoe but…. Thank yo for the inspiration Holly – you rock!

  2. What a beautiful piece with great detail. It looks really nice in the spot you've chosen for it. Clever idea with the hooks and twine for the picture hanging. I am also interested in your wall color. I really like it.

  3. Holly— if you get around to this– is there a certain white you usually use? Or any advice? No stark white, or keep it more pure white?? Anything will help!
