Decorating With Vanity Tables

Remember when women owned frilly vanity tables with upholstered stools and ornate mirrors? Well nothing has changed. Women are still painting, primping, poufing and perfecting their look while sitting at their beautiful mirrored vanities.

The vanity table serves as a kind of sanctuary for a woman where she can feel free and at ease to play and experiment with all of the accessories that help to make her look more beautiful. In fact, in front of a makeup mirror, seated at her dressing table, a woman can totally transform herself.

Today, many women still  look for stylish and elegant vanities. Some of the popular ones are antique inspired, modern and sleek, distressed, and custom-built vanities that meet specific bathroom requirements. There is one out there with your name on it!

It starts when we are young, this love affair with the vanity.
Little girls beg for small pink or white bedroom vanities to make them feel like princesses or make them feel grown up.

A girl can certainly feel like a princess here.  Many prefer glass sitting atop their vanity.

Makeup vanity tables have also been a traditional part of a woman's boudoir area.....

 and even today there is a wonderful collection of makeup vanity tables to choose from.

This vanity drips lace.


This pretty piece of furniture also serves as a storage area for a woman’s personal toiletries such as cosmetics, perfumes, lotions, hair products and so much more.

Every woman needs a private time for themselves, especially during the morning and night. They need to have their own personal oasis where they can focus on themselves.

Accessories make the vanity and are fun collectibles that won't break the bank.

Don't forget the vanity chair! 

Having the right designed stool is critical to any vanity area.

Pretty vintage silver vanity accessories are fun to collect.

While your bed may be the centerpiece of your bedroom, a vintage vanity adds a touch of old-school glamour and elegance.

No matter what your d├ęcor, old world, bohemian.......

traditional or contemporary, the vast selection of styles and sizes of makeup vanity tables offer the perfect choice for everyone.

The legendary Jean Harlow, the original platinum blonde, at her all white vanity. I love how the glass top sets up on legs.

I have a beautiful antique silver cake plate that I plan on using just like this. Clever!!

I love the Hollywood Regency look of mirrored furniture.......

and these two vanities are mirrored perfection. 

This cherub would look perfect on a vanity draped in YOUR pearls.

A real girly girl vanity in Shabby Chic style.

Lovely antique porcelain perfume bottles.

Vanity or dressing tables are a perfect chance to get girly.This one has a beautiful vanity tray, a silver cup for makeup brushes, and always a small vase for a little bunch of flowers.

Be sure to emphasize the romantic look of your vanity by choosing the right accessories for the top of it. A display of antique perfume bottles is ideal, but you can also add a vintage hand mirror, comb and brush set with a silver finish to complement the perfume bottles.

Beautiful smokey glass mirrors lend to the Hollywood Glam style vanity area. I love how they have used a Louis XV console for their vanity. Be creative! Many different antique tables can double as a vanity.

For those with small space there are small makeup vanity tables with stools that can easily fit into a bedroom.

If you have a lot of space to work with  a larger size vanity with drawers and storage is a great option.

A beautiful vanity is functional and aesthetically pleasing and will lend ample character and charm to any bathroom or bedroom.
