Moving is my absolute least favorite “adulting” thing to do. I have done a lot of it in the past two years, but I am finally settled in a new place with my younger sister. We have a beautiful, modern, two bedroom near both of our jobs and the cool spots Uptown and Downtown. I successfully removed the final moving boxes from my bedroom last week, and have been working on pulling the space together.
Of course most of my focus has been on the area where all the magic happens…my vanity. Last night, being the handy woman that I am (insert sarcasm here), I hung the shelves I purchased last week.
Please ignore the fact that I’m hanging out in the mirror.
If you know me at all then you know I am obsessed with anything acrylic, lucite, or basically see through. There is just something about it that looks so classy to me. So when I saw these acrylic shelves at The Container Store I knew I was going home with them. I initially went in there for more storage drawers or possibly even new ones (lusting over the cliché units that Desi Perkins has), but when the shelves caught my eye it was a done deal.
Eventually I would like to do a full overhaul of my happy space, but I am taking it a few items at a time. I like to mix modern with vintage and sometimes it takes some hunting to track down the latter. Needless to say I have never met an antique store I didn’t like! Fortunately for me I found my French Provincial vanity on Craigslist for 100 bucks! That was back in 2012 and since then pieces like it have sold for triple. Look out for my next post on bedroom décor and I am sure there will be a vintage find included.
I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week!
