Christmas Decorating: My Dressing Table

At Christmas time, there are very few areas in my home that go undecorated.  Even my dressing table gets a festive, glam treatment.

Tiffany Blue is my Christmas color of choice here because it’s the accent color in my bedroom {it’s a very serene and romantic color}.

This dressing table is actually a small desk that I bought from a thrift store over 10 years ago.  As you can see by the photo below, it was less than impressive…

…but it was nothing that glossy white paint and new hardware couldn’t fix.  I also re-surfaced the top with a ceramic tile mosaic.  The ‘vintage chic’ chair came from an old, wrought-iron garden set that belonged to my husband’s grandmother.  I spruced it up with a new seat cover.

I love decorating with ribbon because it’s inexpensive but makes a huge impact.  I was very excited to find festive gold and aqua ribbon, which coordinated perfectly with everything else.

I’m a firm believer that busy women and moms need a pretty space of their own.  You can turn any small table into a delightful dressing table.  Just gather up your perfume bottles, photos and other special mementos, and bring in a glamorous free-standing mirror.

Then, during the holiday season, you’ll have a special space to decorate any way you want, using the colors you love.

  1. Wow, this is just SO beautiful! I love it all! I just found your blog through Erin at House of Turquoise and I’m so glad I did. I will definitely be back!

    Could you please answer a question? What color are those beautiful ornaments on your dressing table? Are they the Tiffany blue or are they silver? My daughter and I are in a disagreement about that. Thanks so much!

    I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
