Vintage Dressing Rooms

I'm a lucky girl because I live alone, I can turn a spare bedroom into a dressing room. My house is small, small, small. We're talking tiny here....1,000 square feet of living space, give or take some. This tiny little room is called a crib room. I guess because it's only big enough for a crib! Makes a great dressing room for me though! A girl has just gotta have her own space and I would like to say that I really have downsized over the years on my vintage clothing. I know that some people like to hoard and keep it ALL for themselves but I'd rather put all the stuff I don't want anymore back out into circulation. It's good for my vintage karma and my wallet!

  10. I'm so envious of your dressing room, I've always wanted one complete with a little vintage vanity! I love the lamps visible in the photos and that little chair is adorable as well. :)

  14. Mandy,

    This was a custom built in unit. Nothing expensive just some painted plywood!

    Would love to see what you do to your room, so please send me some pictures when you are done!
