My Vanity Table

My vanity table with it's marble top!
Calcutta marble, soft pretty white with touches of grey.
The top was made with a one inch overhang so I could install
 the pencil pleated skirt underneath for a flush fit.
I have clear push pins holding it in place right now.
It is the perfect solution for this long alcove in our master bathroom.
All of my makeup that used to sit on my bathroom countertop is over here now.
Everything in its place. 
I used odd pieces of silverplate and pretty containers to organize my things.
A bookcase is now used in the bathroom to hold more of my things.

Soaps, lotions, and mementos fill the shelves.
There is an outlet for cable in the wall that I hate looking at...
hence the ladder and has disappeared!
 A lot of fun jewelry sits on the top shelf. 
Its pretty to look at it.
The old blue bottle came off the wall of my New Hampshire property.
My son Justin gave me this crown on mother's day several years ago.
It is the first time I saw sheet music used for a decorative purpose.
This was way before I joined blogland. 
I made a linen swag with shabby ruffle to adorn this window.
Tons of ruffles cascade around the window frame.
It complements the floor length panel over the tub.
All the soft misty blues look so pretty against the taupe walls and floor.
A little marble top gives this spot the glamour I wanted.

  19. Hi Amy,
    The marble top is perfect for your devine and elegant vanity area. It is fit for a princess and it even comes complete with a crown!
    You have added so many lovely details to the bath area and I just love the ladder and the wisp of tulle. You are going to enjoy it so much.


  20. turned out great! You found more marble! How fantastic. It is so pretty. What a wonderful spot to sit and do your makeup. I love all the silver containers. I really like a mirror in front of a window too because it's kind of unexpected. What are you going to sit on while you do your makeup?

  21. Hi Amy, well I just knew it was gonna be fantastic!! Love it.. it's so pretty and I love how roomy your bathroom is.. mine is very small. Anyhow, love all your nic nacs and especially your silver bits and pieces! I think the frilly curtain above makes it look very grand and feminine at the same time. You must be so happy with it all! take care, Maryann

  22. Gorgeous vanity! This is my favourite marble!
    I just love that crown your son gave you!!
    Pamela :)

  23. You did a great job. The marble you chose for your vanity top is beautiful and the edge detail makes it even more substantial. I also really like the fabrics in the space... the embroidered polka dot pleated skirt is gorgeous, yet fun and the light blue linen ruffled swag is to die for. How much do I love the music sheet crown Justin gave you?! You have got the soft French chic country look down.

  24. I really appreciate all the little details you shared with your lovely photos. It is absolutely gorgeous.

  25. This is an awesome post, I would really love it if you linked this up to Masterpiece Monday at Boogieboard Cottage as well! Have a nice Week! Mary :O)

  26. This is a very pretty skirt for your vanity. Try velcro as your solution to hanging it under the vanity top. Love the netting at the bottom.

  27. It's beautiful!!! So soft and pretty... I love the subtle blues and creams and silver. The curtains are luscious. And, you have the round mirror on your dresser! Perfect!


  28. Amy this is just beautiful such a lovely space for your vanity and pretties!
