Dressing the Dresser


My dresser in our bedroom is tall, and has always kind of perplexed me. Right now, the small television set I had in college is sitting on it and since we never really use it, Wes is getting his wish and the TV is getting the boot. Now that some space is free, I'm thinking about what else I can do with the top (right now I have a tray that holds my jewelry and an alabaster urn). These three in particular are inspiring me.



This one is especially appropriate since Wes bought this crewel bedspread (for my birthday in February) from Kelly's fabulous shop!

Hey, Jennifer! What fun to see my dresser (in my old guestroom)!! That bedspread is seriously PHENOMENAL. I haven't found anything like it since. Not even close. So glad that you two own it now!

(on a sidenote: my husband wants to get rid of the tv in our bedroom too, but I refuse! where will I sneak away to watch reality tv?)

I CANNOT believe my eyes! My mom has that EXACT bedspread in one of the spare bedrooms! We've always loved it and have never seen another crewel quite as lovely!

Lucky you, to own it too!

Love the last picture! The spread is lovely! TV's in bedrooms ought to be outlawed! Carla

I see a trend: lamp, mirror/art, books, plant, and picture frame. I know it will look fabulous!

I really like all the images you've chosen, especially the last one. We have been redecorating our room and just this morning I put our bedroom tv in the pile of stuff headed for the loft. BTW the bedspread is lovely! Have a happy weekend.

Very pretty! I especially like the gray chest. We don't do TV in the bedroom either ;)

Your dresser is gorgeous - love, love the dark blue gray! Thank you so much on your advice re: the paper - I had completely forgotten about spray adhesive as an option. Plus, your tip of taping out the other part is perfect. Hope this finds you well. Have a great weekend. Michele

I am really inspired by the bright yellow lamp. I have a similar shape lamp with a brown base and shade. My bedroom is slowly getting a make-over and I think a new color and shade could do the trick for my old lamp. Yay!
