Do you dream of having a space that is just yours, no one else can place their junk on, and you can make pretty? Well, I have been dreaming of that forever! I have never had a place in the house where I could sit and put my make up on, do my hair or hang my jewellery. Until now!
That’s all mine now! I’m not going to let anyone fill it with junk or kids stuff!! I can now store all my makeup, hair bits and bobs, creams, nail polishes and all those little bits and bobs.
I have made us of the alcove of the bedroom to fill with more storage boxes. The grey IKEA BESTA storage boxes are perfect for this shelf, I then can fill with all the little bits and bobs!
Being an open top I can easily reach things, and plug sockets near here it is easy to dry my hair too. Even my Photobox cushions work well on the shelf!
Of course, you have spotted this amazing mirror! I was sent this Hetti Round Mirror from Exclusive Mirrors to try to find a perfect space for it, I think I managed that! It looks perfect here, with a real impact, and gives me plenty of mirror to get ready in front of. 100cm in size it makes a statement!
I have always wanted one of these sunburst mirrors, and this one really doesn’t disappoint. It works perfectly in a silver finish, with my grey and white colour scheme.
I love that I was able to still place my little photos around the shape of this mirror too.
We love IKEA, and I love being able to turn them into something more than there come as.

The IKEA EKBY ALEX shelf was used as the dressing table, with EKBY LERBERG brackets in grey as support. This pulls out the grey within the wallpaper, flooring and bedding too. The shelf has some really nice drawers to place items inside, you can purchase inserts to stop things moving around so much.
Have you spotted the little stool? This IKEA MARIUS cost £3 from IKEA but looked cheap (as it would be for £3!) so I wanted to add something extra to it.
I purchased some off the roll fabric from Dunelm Mill, but you could use anything that matches your decor. You don’t need very much at all. A piece of foam, and used a glue gun to glue it all together.
Then that was it! Now it’s comfy and much prettier, and so easy to do.
I am so pleased with my new dressing area, I can now sit peacefully with a mirror in front of me and get ready. Bliss!
So what do you think of my new dressing area? Have you got a space that is just yours? Hope you’ve managed to keep it clear of everyone else’s junk!!
