Bedroom Dresser

This is our bedroom dresser and I have always struggled with what to place above it because it is so long. I found the mirror at the thrift store for $5 a couple of years ago and painted it a light gray color but I could never find anything I liked for the empty wall space next to it.

And then I spotted this little white $5 cupboard at the thrift store the other day. For that price I figured it was worth bringing home and trying, besides the glass knob on it is worth $5 alone. Turns out it works perfectly in the space and the bonus is it provides storage too. It was built to be a medicine cabinet so it has lots of little shelves which I can put my creams and perfume on.

I bought the little tote at the MauMee Antique Mall for $6 and painted it gray, it is great for holding my makeup and my watches. Now I know you are wondering about that amazing enamelware pitcher....

I know I don't need to tell you how thrifty I am but every once in a while you stumble across something that you just know you aren't going to find at your local flea market or thrift store. Well this beautiful French enamelware pitcher is one of those things. I found it at Mademoiselle Tresors on Etsy, Wahine has the most amazing things in her shop. I had been looking for an enamel pitcher and I love anything that is white with blue stripes so I knew this was the one for me.

The Blue Willow sugar dish was a gift from my Dad and it is one of my favorite things. And Neal built me the rustic box (painted Glidden "Whispering Wheat") so that I would have place for my chargers. I am so happy with the way it all came together, some things are worth the wait.


  1. Great finds! The cabinet is perfect and the pitcher is a great score!

  2. Such wonderful finds. And perfect vignette!!

  3. Your cabinet and pitcher are absolutely wonderful...I have to look up that Etsy site!


  4. What a clever idea! I have an old medicine chest I use as a spice cabinet in my kitchen but I never thought of using one for storage in the bedroom.

  5. Adorable..!!!
