At the top of our stairs is a small landing with a slanty roof. With such a small space, it’s hard to know what to do without wasting it. The very generous other half suggested I use it for a dressing table – so out we went to the local charity furniture shop, armed with my pennies and this is what we came back with. It was a little beaten up in the form of a few scratches here and there, but the table was solid and the drawers were deep and it was an absolute bargain for only £5. And so my celebratory dance took place. It was a happy moment.
I cleaned her up, gave her a facelift with a mushroom shade of paint (which I bought for the mantel piece) and swapped the old metal handles for cut glass (well, plastic) ones which cost me £1 each from the range. So for a grand total of £12, I have myself a rather fancy dressing table, which makes such a very pleasant change to doing my make up in bed. I know I reached double figures with this conversion, but it was so worth it!
