Cute Dressing Table for Maebh’s Room

I have been looking for dressers & wardrobes online at Gumtree.com and the various “yard sale” groups on Facebook – (there are like 20 in this part of North Norfolk alone!) but I have not found anything that was cheap and good quality.  Most of the stuff I see online, at car boot sales or used furniture shops range anywhere from £45 – £200 and are not quality, rather particle-board type fake wood.  While I often hope to score one at the James Beck Auction – these type pieces never go this cheap.

A guy in Alysham was selling what he calls a dressing table for £10.  I wasn’t sure if it was going to be able to fit into the back of the car, but sure enough it did.  It’s perfect – solid heavy wood and has a nice mirror and really beautiful knobs.   There is a tiny pull of the edge at the bottom but I don’t care – it is old and it looks a bit rustic and in great shape!! I might try to glue it.

Perfect for Maebh’s room and her clothes.  Now she can dance around and admire herself in the mirror. 🙂


Beautiful detailed knobs

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
