In The Details

My wardrobe room isn't 100% complete yet (if you missed the first post, read all about the transformation here).  I still need some sort of drapes or roman shades for my little window & another decorative/functional accessory for the bare spot on my dresser (I'm thinking a grecian bust I can drape necklaces on?).  But, I wanted to share more pictures with you of the finishing touches I've added over the last month.  It's all the little things that make a space extra special - as you will see, my love for vintage finds is a repeated theme throughout...

Antique magazine holder (found at a garage sale for $20) - sanded down & repainted white

 

Vintage switchplate cover (found on eBay for $5) - polished & installed


The perfect place for Audrey (from one of my all-time favorite movies)


Silver tray (found at Marshall's) that holds my cut crystal dish with cocktail rings + perfume bottles

Love what you did with this. I have serious closet evny! :)

Loved what you did with this closet/room. I noticed in another post you were looking for suggestions for the window. I think you should do a roman shade (chocolate brown or cream) and then a soft fabric valance. With the left over fabric from the valance you could make a matching table runner for your dresser:)

Ah, the 'woman cave'. Love it! When my husband and I moved and he got a man cave, I insisted on turning the office into my woman cave.

Love! I don't have a wardrobe room (YET!) but I've been working on making my closet and dresser pretty with little details lately! I especially love the tray for your jewelry and perfume. Also, I love that you wear Dream Angels Heavenly. It's one of my faves :) XO

Love the idea to store cocktail rings in a crystal bowl and lining up shoes against the wall - practical, functional, and beautiful all at once! :)
