Repurposed Dressing Table

Bane's Crafty Month theme is repurposing by something old into something new or using a whole new purpose. 



This has to be my favourite theme, so far as I love repurposing anything and everything; Bane is definitely my source for inspiration. Not forgetting Pinterest.  

At the beginning of the month, I've had a number of projects that I have completed and the main thing is reorganising my dressing table in the bathroom, which the epitome of repurposed items.

I have hade my glass table for a few years; it from Ikea and is great being repurposed as a dressing table. 

I purchased this for a pound in a charity shop it's a meant to be a glass chopping board but I used reused on my dressing table. I got the idea from Bane. 



My mirror was secondhand from Gumtree and I paid a fiver for it I loved the ornate detail of it with flowers. 



Most of this is my second-hand finds except for my box cotton wool box is from eBay 
   

Last year, I bought these bathroom accessories for less than a pound and I spray painted them black. I use them for my makeup sponges and ear buds to clean up my eyeliner. 


I purchased two bottles for sauces or oil olive and I loved the beautiful floral decoration on the bottle and used for my micellar water. 


I purchased a glass tray from the local community shop with other glassware, it was pretty cool. 


I've been debating to spray painted black I finally give in and painted black. by washing it, priming it, and spray painting it black. to protect the painted surface with sticky back plastic.


I love the final result.
