A Bedroom Vanity Change


I realized this morning that I've had the same arrangement on and around the bedroom vanity for over six years. . . .Six years? Yep. Amazing, huh?. . . .Out of character since I seem to change out other rooms monthly--sometimes weekly. . . .


As I rolled up the winter rugs (I'm determined winter is over), the urge finally hit me for a change--to a more plain and simple look--of course. . . .less clutter. . . .


I'm not sure how plain and simple I made it. . . .There's still a little fussiness. . . .But, it is less cluttered. . . .Lighter and brighter. . . . Reflecting candlelight adds to the glow. . . .


I'm now ready for an even bigger change. . . .Just as soon as the weather gets a little warmer and we can get into some of our storage buildings, I'll be bringing a few different pieces of furniture into the bedroom. They are a bit "plainer". . . . thought I wouldn't get stuck in this rut any further. That's part of the fun of having so many buildings with storage, I can change pieces as much as we have the energy to do so.

. . .but. . .I couldn't wait that long for a temporary change. . . .I'm determined to shoo winter out of here.  .  .Get that little light shining brighter. . . .
















"If everyone lit
Just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be. . . ."

 
Wishing you a bright and glowing weekend. . . .

. . .from my farmhouse to yours. . .

Your vanity is such a pretty piece of furniture...was it in your family? I love the color. I think you have it dressed just perfectly. I have cleaned out my living room and kitchen to be painted and I really want to be particular with what I put back...I tend to clutter things up quickly!

Have a great day!

XO,
Jane

I love your vanity! So pretty, especially in the soft green color.
Nothing better then a little re-decorating to brighten up your world!

Luv the vanity. Hmmm, now that you mention it... the master does seem to suffer less change that the rest of the home.
Luv your sweet soft changes.
Hugs, Gee

Hi Dru,
What a soft environment to steal away for a cozy nap. After seeing your new look for your bedroom I am contemplating doing the same in our master bedroom. I have enjoyed the fussiness but oh, how I dislike all the dusting. Spring is nearly here and with it comes Spring Cleaning. Thank you for the inspiration to declutter mine, too.
Blessings on this March day,

What a sweet vanity, Dru! Loving the soft color of it. How fun to be able to go to a barn on your property to pick out different furniture pieces!! That could be very dangerous for me.

Your room is so pretty.

It's not plain and simple. It's sweet! The chair is my favorite. Of course, I love the dress forms I see in the reflection of the mirror.
Farmhouse hugs,

Simply beautiful!! I love the dress forms!! I have an old one, but she is out in the garage. Her fabric is in very bad shape...she is going to get a makeover when it warms up.

Oh I just love that vanity! The color is so pretty. My daughter has one very similar...but it is white. And, I don't think it is to fussy at all.

Blessings,

Such a beautiful vanity, Dru. I love the light accessories. How do you always have a great reflection in your mirrors?

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Dru. I love the change, but you know, I always love what you do. I try to keep a candle lit most of the time. It's just healing to me, and it really kind of tames down the smell of dog!!Happy Weekend..Judy

What a restful, beautiful spot! Things don't change much in my bedroom, either :) But I love your changes!

craftyles said...

It's beautiful. I love the white touches and the dress forms in the mirror are fabulous! I have the same painted trash can in my bedroom.

Dawn said...

I can't believe you have left an area the same for 6 years. So glad you linked you new look up at the Cabin this week. I am also ready for the snow and winter to be over, but that white stuff is back in the forecast for us again tomorrow:(

Stacey said...

I can leaves things the same forever too. If I get something set the way I like it, then changing doesn't always enter my mind. Blogging has changed that some.

Your dressing table looks beautiful. I absolutely love the pretty reflection in the mirrors.

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

You sound like a kindred spirit. I leave things the same for years on end, and if they still make me smile, why not?

I adore your dresser. What is the color? I love it!

Carol said...

That is such a sweet little vanity, and I'm adoring the color!

I love you vanity Dru. What lovely photos. I did not see how the rooms looked before but I love everything about this look. So fresh and comforting. I great space to cozy up with a book and a great cup of tea or chocolate.

I love the color of the vanity. I am ready to shoo winter on out also...it seems to be putting up rather a fuss about it though.
