Dresser Top Clean-up

With everything going on in the house, this is what our Master bedroom dresser ended up looking like...

A big pile of mess and catch-all

FOUND: Pool drain cover, camera attachment, receipts from 6 months ago, magazines from 4 months ago, missing homework, missing headband, clips and earring! 

So on one of my days off, I cleaned it up and came up with this...

Aaaahhh, much better.. :-)

I basically moved the Vessel Glass lamp to the basement and put my recent GOODWILL score orchid pot
 on the other end.

Yup, that's our wedding portrait taken years and years ago (used to be on my bedside table) and a recent photograph of the boys when we went on the cruise. The "BE" wall art was from TJ Maxx as well as the small "I LOVE YOU" display block. The mirrored jewelry box was something I got years ago too during residency from my "Secret Santa".

Remember this beautiful Blue & White Ceramic lamp I scored from GOOD WILL too? I think I'm starting a blue and white collection but don't have enough, so for now, the blue & whites stay in our bedroom. The "Keep Calm & Carry On" Bowl is a clearance find from TJ Maxx and the brass urn is from an Antique store. I have 2 bottles of sand from two of our favorite beaches that I want to display here, just don't know how yet, any suggestions? 

Anyway, hope it stays this clean and nice for a while... or at least until the next project... which is in 2 weeks! Yikes!

Have a Wonderful Day!

  1. You've styled the dresser nicely! I think it's awesome to see your mess and everything it entailed! It makes me feel better about not being so organized! I really like the blue and white lamp. Blue is going to be huge next year because of Pantone's Spring Color of the year, so it's a great collection to start if you like it.

  2. I love your blue and white accessories! Your dresser top looks so stylish now. Beautiful wedding picture too!

  3. Oh, you two are so cute in your wedding photo! Nice job on the dresser top. I like that you are playing up the collection of blue and white by having it there together -- so pretty!

  4. Love the blue and white lamp! I need to go to Goodwill more often!

  5. Vel, this looks great. Who can't relate to the before. I love your wedding portrait. Doesn't the time just fly by?

  6. It always feels so good to clean something in the house, no matter how small. Looks very nice, Vel. Your wedding photo is just beautiful!

  7. I'm feeling soo good just looking at how you cleared that space up! and I'm obsessed with blue and white so of course i LOVE the orchid pot! Finally catching up on your blog today :)

  8. Loving your blue and white accessories. Nice Finds!

  9. Very, very nice! The blue and white at either end is nice and ties it all together.

  10. It feels so good when we de-cluttered our spaces! I need to do a lot of that in my room :(
    You look gorgeous in your wedding pic!

  11. I should so do that on my entrance dresser! I don't even know what's on it and what's burried under all that! I love your white and blue theme!

  12. Vel, my dresser is a mess! You've inspired me! Loving your wedding portrait too. xx
