Incase I haven’t said it before, I hate winter. Now that it’s firmly into spring (and we’re out of lockdown) I feel like I have the energy to film DIY again, and I’ll be starting with a small one before I start the bigger projects – like making a mirror stand and movable compartments for the drawers.
It’s taken me over a year to find a dressing table second hand on Facebook marketplace that I liked. As much as I love second hand shopping – especially for how kind it is on the the budget – the down side is that it can take a long, long time to find something you love.
Before you ask, the Ottoman isn’t going anywhere, it’s just going to be repurposed as a seat for the desk and storage for my digital piano from now on. I’m still very pleased that I worked as hard on it as I did, even if it didn’t end up being my ‘forever’ dressing table. So many of the ideas I experimented with will end up being used in the dressing table drawers, and it was a fun project that helped give me a little area of my own while the rest of the house was a building site.
