The Dream Dressing Table || Ideas and Inspiration

Hello everyone, hope you're all well! Recently I decided to do up my old dressing table, which still has crayon marks from when I used to use it as a desk when I was younger along with weird scratches and mascara smudges. It needed an overhaul! Of course I headed straight to weheartit and tumblr for some ideas and inspiration as well as having a flick through some of my favourite blogs to see any home decor posts they have in their archives. Below are a selection of some of the wonderful images I found which I hope help anyone looking to add a touch of sparkle to their dressing table! and

Fairy lights are a dressing tables best friend, no dressing table is complete without them! I love the cream rose lights which can make a plain mirror look magical and the floral bunting intertwined with the simple fairy lights is very unique and suits a more modern table.


Would you like a cup of tea with that? Laura's gorgeous hairband storage is definitely something I would love to incorporate onto my own dressing table! and zoella

I don't have a vast jewellery collection but keeping rings and bracelets in little china dishes is such a beautiful way of displaying them!

I own a lot less makeup than Georgina or Kayleigh but I love the way they store their products, how it's clearly partitioned and easy to use! Dressing Table draws are also a great place to keep the stash!


I currently keep my lipsticks in Soap and Glory body butter tubs but using old tins is a lovely idea. Zoe's vintage storage is very enviable!

Right, I better get decorating!

Where do you go for dressing table inspiration?



  1. I really wish I had space in my room for a dressing table!
    I am thinking about redoing my chest of drawers though - that needs renovating and loads of these ideas are really versatile so I could still use them! Love the post :-) xx

    1. What a shame, but doing up your chest of drawers is a great idea!xx

  2. Those lights look lovely and the idea of storing things in teacups is so cute, I'll have to do it sometime

    1. The teacup storage idea is my favourite xx

  3. I can't wait for the day I can have a proper dressing table :)
    I took inspiration from Zoella keeping her lipstick in a vintage tin and found a very cute one in TK Maxx. Have my bracelets in a teacup and nail varnishes on a cake stand which is also quite cute I think.
