Love Your Space Challenge #9

Dress Your Dresser

Here’s an easy challenge to start off the week! Now that we have tackled our clothes… 😉 let’s make the surfaces in our bedroom pretty.

Use practical and pretty items such as trays and glass containers to corral the little items that tend to sit on your dresser or bedside table, put away items that shouldn’t be out and add a few pretty accessories to create a lovely vignette.

I used a long wire basket to hold my scarves and belts and a three tiered plate to display some of my jewelry.  If you want more ideas on creative jewelry storage, click here.


Well, we have one more challenge for “sleeping spaces” tomorrow, make sure you come by! If you would like instant updates via email, just fill out the subscribe box at the top of the page.

Have a wonderful Monday,



  1. Loving these pins as always, friend! They are just too pretty. I’d gladly take ANY of these as my room 🙂 I specifically like the 2nd and 4th pins, though! Simple & pretty! 🙂

  2. Wow! This is such a great idea! Little random items spread out can look so cluttered but placing them all together in one tray or container looks so much better. Thanks for sharing! 😀

  3. Oh my goodness. Your blog is so lovely! I found you through the facebook group and was inspired by your beautiful gold and glittery social media buttons when I made my own! I love these challenges and can’t wait to reference them in the future. Right now we’re doing a lot of painting projects, and I’m learning so much from the first room, alone. Can’t wait to see more from you!

  4. This is such a wonderful idea! How easy it would be to get things how you want them just one simple task at a time 🙂
