As my vintage collection has been expanding my closet space has been decreasing. We have 3 bedrooms in our house and I had 2 of those 3 closets full of stuff. Our guest room was a potpourri – dog room, “office” when we actually had a computer in there, and general storage. We decided to relocate the dogs to our room (they sleep in a crate while we’re away during the day) and transform the office into my dressing room.
I can thank my talented husband for doing most of this transformation. He put up a clothing rod and shelf for my clothes and (some of) my vintage purses. I do still have some clothes (separates mostly) in the closet. I hung my dresses.
He then went to the clearance warehouse sale at Find Furnish in NE Minneapolis and bought a dresser – it had marker on it, glitter on it, water rings, you name it. He sanded it down and refinished it. It’s so gorgeous!
I found some matching pink lamps at an antique shop for a steal! I got my little retro looking radio at Target.
I’ve got my bracelets displayed and I still need more displays (someone has a bracelet problem….)
My dresser drawers hold my earrings and misc other jewels…
My awesome friend Roxanne made me some brooch holders.
Lucas made me this necklace display awhile back and I use the closet door for hair flowers.
My small vintage hat collection hangs on the wall….
I searched all over for a vanity. I wanted one that was more 50’s/MCM than the classic 40’s waterfall styles. I finally found this one via a Minneapolis MCM Facebook page. I have a teal velvet ottoman to sit on now (pic below but it’s a little dark).
On my vanity I have my vintage ladies head vases, retro clock from Target, autographed Dita photo, mirror from Amazon, perfume and vintage vase from Julie.
And hello Paris/poodle trash can! (And matching kleenex box).
I love it! HUGE thank you to my darling husband for helping me make it a reality! Love you to the moon!
