fine lines and dreams of a vanity table ...and soft lighting, of course

West Elm narrow leg vanity


Urban Grace Interiors brought this Mitchell & Gold desk to my attention. Love it - especially the slightly flared legs. Image via Michaelian & Kohlberg.

Could the advent of fine lines bring on this sudden desire for my own dressing table? Or maybe I need to sit down, versus standing at the mirror, after I contemplate the increasing amount of time required to achieve the desired results? Whatever the cause, I have a case of vanity table envy. Maybe the dresser can go...to be replaced by one of these lovely odes to the ritual of preparing to greet the world and retire for the evening.

How much do I wish I had room for a vanity? I know I'm married for years, but I think I really may need my own bedroom. Sorry, DH.

Thank you both for visiting!I think the skirted one is great too and Kwana - when my husband snores I definitely want my own room.
