Have you ever dreamed about having certain pieces of furniture? I have….in fact there are many types of furniture out there in the world that I have always wanted but not quite got to owning yet. A dressing table is one of those fine pieces of furniture I have often thought about and dreamed of sitting at.
Our house in the UK is a 2/3 bedroomed bungalow, on the corner of a road with a sweet wrap around garden. It is our first home together, after spending almost 7 years between our parent’s houses. I couldn’t wait to get in and start organising, decorating and putting our personalities into it. I found it a lot harder than I originally thought it would be!
Our bedroom was the first room we gutted; I say gutted because I don’t think it had been decorated since it was built in 1970! We soon found out that everything needed doing in every room; plastering, re-wiring, woodwork, painting etc. The largest room, where we have our bedroom, is a simple long rectangle with a large window covering the width of one of the short walls. Due to the window placements, the bed was hard to position as we didn’t want furniture to cover the big window and we just didn’t know what to put where! We certainly didn’t have room to put a dressing table anywhere!
Our rented apartment in the US almost has the same square footage as our bungalow in the UK! It came fully furnished but no dressing table! We have room for a dressing table but we are only here for a year so again I can’t really buy one! I am sure that you can imagine my frustration :-0
I have put together a list of my favourite dressing tables. If I ever had an eight bedroomed house, I would buy all 8 of these 🙂 If I ever get to buy 1 of these…I will let you know!
