Corners Of My Home // G Plan Dressing Table


In our past three homes I have been lucky enough to have a dressing table area, I know to some it really isn’t a must but for this beauty/make up loving gal it is always a winning preference.

G Plan Dressing Table

When we moved here I was lucky enough to pick up this gorgeous G Plan beauty for under £40, although in the end it cost a lot more as the car blew up on the drive to it, I digress.

I have a love for Mid Century pieces in particular G Plan, I am not sure why, sometimes I am quite sure I was born in the wrong era, I definitely have an old soul and that comes out in my homewares.

Our Bedroom is a room we started not long after moving in a year ago, but after Grayson’s accident in the Summer and knowing we would move by this Summer I decided to stop in my decorating process.

So my dressing table is a little half-finished, but cute all the same, it houses a couple of accessories I love on top, my newest being this washable paper copper bag from The Future Kept, you really must check these out they are amazing and I can’t wait to buy a few more for plant pots.

I also have the oldest thing I own decorating this little space, a beautiful silver vintage dress bag which is truly magnificent. My Grandfather bought it for my Nana when they were courting over 65 years ago and she graciously passed it down to me after watching me lust over it for many years.

I think that is the thing about a dressing table, it is the place of dreams, I remember even as a TomBoy craving for my own special space and I am so thankful to have it, to create memories, Deacon in particular loves to come and sit with me here, watching me put my Make Up on, intrigued by all my items, giggling as I touch his nose with my blusher brush.

There are things that need changing and updating, the mirror for sure and I have some plans with Spray paint for my Cotton Wool pots, but that is the fun of having a home, constantly evolving into that Pinterest perfect area.

    What a gorgeous dressing table and what an absolute bargain. I remember when I used to visit my nan, I would be obsessed with playing with all the things she had on her dressing table. Its funny now as I don’t have one. Just a chest of drawers with my make up on. Not particular inspiring x

  • Love the table and the copper/rose gold items! My goodness that’s a lot of makeup! I love how you have a place for everything. I remember a while back, I did a cull of makeup that was years old. You have to be in the right mood, much like getting rid of clothes that have been hoarded for years! I remembered that you like the same perfumes as me (the marc jacobs ones) so I had a nosey at the others – many years ago you recommended Kate Moss and I still haven’t smelt it! So I will now…xx

    • I do love my make up, some of it is over 12 years old though, it alwasy comes back in fashion.
      Oh you must as it is only £20 too so a steal, I bought a new Zara one yesterday too for £7.99 xx

    Aaah G-Plan!! Amazing how it’s stood the test of time and still looks contemporary even today.I’d absolutely love a dressing table but sadly there’s just not room in our current bedroom. #HomeEtc

    • I agree they are timeless pieces aren’t they ? When I move I will have no room for it either, I am quite sad xx
