Styling Idea # 50 Side Table Dressing Table


My room has to perform many functions- more functions that legally allowed for a 3 x 3m space but hey, what’s a girl to do? I know I have done dressing tables already but how cute is this idea- turn your side table into a dressing table.


Design Evolution



  • Simply by adding a mirror above the side table you have a dressing table so you don’t even need to buy a new piece of furniture – just a mirror and a small chair.
  • I love the use of the clear chair- it fades into the background. Also consider a mini stool covered in a bright or retro fabric.
  • Consider doing a male version on his side of the bed with a masculine chair, some books, a square mirror and a tie rack. He wont actually sit at it but it will be a nice masculine/ feminine styling touch.
  • Make sure there is enough space for your bedside goodies- if you cannot put your cup of tea down and a book you need to de-clutter.
  • The table lamp is cute but you could also consider some dramatic wall lights of a floor lamp to give you a bit more space.
  • If you have a draw keep it absolutely perfect when you it open it is should be a little haven of scarves, lipsticks, perfume bottles and everything that makes you feel nice and special. A cluttered draw near your head when you sleep is terrible feng sui!
