House to Home: Dressertop

Going to start a new series that gives you a little peak into corners of my home:) Like the outfit posts, I want to make this blog personal as well :) You can follow along my attempt to make our new house a home!

Candle: Gift, Perfume: Banana Republic Jade, Necklace: IHOD, Watch: Fossil

PLEASE NOTE: My dresser is a place that not only collects jewelry, lotion, and perfume, but also pacifiers, bobby pins, baby socks, and hand written notes. Its often quite a mess! What does your dresser seem to collect?? ;)

  1. My dresser is often a mess, and I find myself tidying it up every night! It is piled with jewelry, bobby pins, hair elastics, sunglasses, and perfume; then, my keys and daily mail always end up there until night time when I tidy up. It's my go-to dropping spot when I have no time to be instantly organized. It definitely doesn't look as chic as yours!

  2. I usually end up with a stack of books and magazines since I love reading in bed! In addition to bobby pins and hair ties :)

  6. I love the idea of the mirror on your dresser! Might steal that one!

    My dresser collects my jewelry of course, along with mail, clothes and anything and everything that makes it's way up to the bedroom with me at the end of the day.

  7. My nightstand manages to stay pretty much the way I style it. My guy's nightstand is usually covered with phone charger, random coins, tags from a new shirt, pens, business cards, you name it!

  8. Don't you love Tyler candles? I was given one as a gift and it amazes me how beautifully scented they are every time I light it! I love a dresser with a bit of a mess to it. We're dresser-less right now since we recently moved, so our mess is currently on the floor. :) Xo, Katie

  15. Yours looks so perfect! I don't have a dresser at the moment, gave mine up when I went to varsity, but mine has anything and everything on it.

    At the moment our his and hers sinks in the bathroom is the victim, much to the frustration of my boyfriend. One sink is filled with my hair dryer, straightener and curling iron (don't try this at home kids) and the other one is filled with make up. I hear a very familiar uuugh in the mornings when he wants to wash his face or brush his teeth. Hahahah

  18. My dresser:
    belts
    safety pins
    running gear
    stray buttons
    stray tags
    stray threads
    stray pieces of paper
    watches
    glasses
    drinking glasses
    books

    It's a catch-all of discarded things in addition to being my jewelry counter. :(

    How many mirrors do you have? Finding a mirror tray like that is a smart and gorgeous idea.

  20. My dresser is in a awkward spot in the bedroom that tends to be occupied by my husband often... so my dresser collects his books, his watch, his ring. One day I'm sure the layout of our room will make more sense!

  21. I love this series!
    I try to keep mine neat and tidy with the use of cute bowls to catch all of the miscelaneous items, but it still manages to get messy!

  22. So pretty! I love the mirror :) My dresser collects mostly dust! But also a ton of hair ties and all of the jewelry I don't feel like putting away.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I clean my dresser when I do a whole house clean usually, but it always ends up messy again with make-up, clothing tags and any other crud I use in the morning!

  24. SO EXCITED about all of this!! The Home and Outfit posts!! BTW the blog looks gorgeous!! Way to go, girl!!:D

  25. Anna, this is such a good idea! Your dresser top is lovely. I actually haven't had a dresser for a long time -- it's my desk that collects everything.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So pretty! Mine gets cluttered with Mr B's things. He dumps everything on his own (from cufflinks to socks and newspapers and dry-cleaning bags), and when it gets so completely messy that you can't see the surface, he dumps his things on mine too. It drives me crazy! (Also, I have to say I am impressed with the lack of dust on your dresser)

  27. Oh I like this idea. of showing little bits.
    That's one really pretty dresser and perfume...mine collects everything and anything I have the time to throw on it! heehee

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mine too! A mix of my things, husband's things and baby things. I try to keep it as tidy as I can (mainly because I like organized things) but a lot of times is a mess!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hmmm...I would like to say that mine collects fabulous jewelry and pretty little bottles, but I'm pretty sure it's usually clothes and other odds and ends! It's a glamorous life we lead (c:

  30. that photo looks so chic! my dresses holds random jewelry strewn about, tags, lotion, and dust ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. ours are definitely a catch all for everything... which actually reminds me, i should probably clean, organize and give them a good dusting! haha

    Love, Leigh

  38. love that necklace of yours..is that in your shop??

  39. I can't wait to see more of your new home! And I love the idea of a mirror on your dresser--it looks so elegant! My dresser seems to collect everything--clothes, tags from new clothes, make up, and dog hair. (Everything seems to collect dog hair!)

    ReplyDelete
  40. My dresser collect EVERYTHING! Jewelry, USB sticks, tools, dog poop bags (unused, of course!).... it's so hard to keep it neat and organized.

    Your dresser is far more elegant than mine :-)
