I love to decorate.... whether it be one style at a time or all at once...

new year resolution & my dressing table finished...

Every new year I make some sort of new year's resolution.. and not long after it's totally forgotten about.
So this year I'm still making a new year's resolution and I'm going to try my damn hardest to stick to it!

So what is it? you may ask.. well it's actually something I read on Houzz.com
....... to follow your heart.... not trends, when it comes to decorating.

So this year I'm not going to waste time worrying if this style goes with that style.. or if this goes with that etc...etc...etc...!  Nope, THIS year if I like it...and it MAKES ME SMILE ... then it's good enough for me!

and THAT is why I ended up painting my dressing table pink! I followed my heart and I'm so glad I did...


I added the applique's either side and painted them gold with a little white wash over the top to match the handles (which I think I've put on upside down!) I think gold and pink look so pretty together and gives it more of a grown up feel...
please excuse the reflection of my wardrobe.. we still have to put doors on that..

I had purchased this little silver set to resell but I think it's definately a keeper  now!
well that's it..not for everyone but I just love it and it's the first thing I see every morning.... this is just the start of my bedroom makeover so I'll post about it as I go as it may take a while.
take care, maryann
ps.. if you scroll down you'll see the before!

I am so glad you followed your heart because this turned out beautifully. I adore the color pink in decorating and fashion. I have a quilt like the pretty floral one on your bed. I love mine and yours looks lovely with everything in your room. You have a very nice blog. Shannon

I've got a similar vanity (not quite as pretty as yours) and never thought of painting it pink. It's SO sweet!

Oh I abolutely love your makeover - I adore the pastel shades and that is such a pretty pink!! I completely agree - go with what YOU love and it will make your heart sing! Over the past few years I've followed my heart rather than 'practical or cheap' purchases and haven't looked back!! Lovely, J9 x
