What should I put on this?

I bought this around a year ago now and it spent a good few months doing nothing but looking pretty in my spare room. I have only just finished decorating my boudoir so had brought it back in and gave it a feature place under the eaves of the roof but I have no idea what to put on it? Its got draws, its got a pull out tray and it also lights up in two places.
I bought it online from Sweetpea & Willow and I had to save up loads for it so I want it to be used to its max. In the photo it had all artist stuff placed on it and the pull out tray had a glass of water with paint brushes in it. That is what sold it for me because I am a quirky little artist at heart.

Here it is, Any ideas?




I can't wait to see what you come up with because I have no clue?

I love it because it is so vintage and cute looking plus its pink and goes with my room :)

Thanks for reading, subscribing, commenting and sharing because it all helps!

Zoom zoom!

Exactly how tall is it? Can u easily reach all the drawers? I would suggest a jewelry or makeup organizer (although I am sure ur makeup is already well taken care of :-). ). There are so many possibilities. I will certainly keep thinking.

It is such a unique piece that it is hard to say what it would be good for. If it were me I thing I would put a cool statue in the lighted opening and store all kind of other collectables that I have in the drawers. Like my grandmothers vintage hankies and my Grandpas old harmonicas and sunglasses that I have. And also any other things I am collecting. A unique holder for truly unique items that I love and are dear to me.

I would mimic the artist thing. I would put your make up brushes in a glass...maybe beside it some fresh flowers or candles, and store your make up in the drawers.

I would go with pink Boas or other feathery foo foo and decorate the top with atomizers or pretty perfume bottles. In the center a vintage photo of your favorite silver screen or pinup model/actress

Maybe a plant or something reflective under the lights. I would either store my nail polish in the drawers or put in special things like my silk scarves. You have some figurines (seen them in your videos) that look like they hold jewelry -- they could sit under the lights too with beads hanging from them

You can use this as extra storage for your makeups, add a vintage mirror in the center to keep up with the look. If you like crafts, use those drawers for storage and the center rack to display your creations. Btw, I wasn't aware you have a blog, of course I'll follow you.

Much aloha!

I would use it as a personal treasure organiser. In the middle maybe a small to medium sized mirror, a rose scented diffuser, family picture. And each draw can be use to stock sentimental thing. Heritage jewellery, drawings from your kid, old stuffs that remind you your childhood, object that remind you essential steps of your liffe,...you could also decorate the middle with a handcrafted frame by using dry petals and recyclable paper, seeds,... very girly and nice way to welcome the spring?

Turn it into a makeup/filming station! You can fit a chair or stool underneath, put your makeup in the drawers, and use the tray to hold the things you are using for your looks. You could put a mirror in the cubby hole and add extra lights if you needed to :) I'm sure you will find something wonderful to do with this. It's so pretty.

Kat said...

It's such a lovely piece - maybe you can use it for accessories storage? Like for big bangles and statement pieces which don't fit into normal sized jewelery boxes? x

Hi Lauren Thankyou for follwing my blog means so much.

This is gorgeous I think it would be great for storing jewellery. You could also put some of your favourite perfume bottles in the centre. I would love somthing like this to store my jewellery in xo

Bobo Sora said...

Perhaps you could put all of your items in there that are sentimental and precious to you. Or of course all of your art supplies! :) It's so pretty!

Hmmm its about 5 ft 6 and I love the idea of jewelry organizer :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

I wouldn't waste the space in it with my big pants :) haha!

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Thanks Kirsten, I love your idea :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Nicola, I used to have a disco ball type ceiling light and I didn't like it because I could see myself in it haha!

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Hi Renee, I have a hand stand so that would be cool :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Avarycce,

That sounds really nice and the fresh flowers will compliment the background board. Thanks!

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

unsaintly,

I love the idea of going all vintage with atomizers :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Kathryne,
Thanks for the great ideas and I will follow your blog :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Elena,
Thanks for your ideas, I especially like the homemade frame with petals :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

The filming station ideas is pretty cool although I dont know if Id be able to fit extra lights, mirror and camera in there :(

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Thanks Kat :) I have a few oversized items I can put in there :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Gemma-Louise,
You are welcome :)

& yes its looking like jewelry is the winner :)

panacea81 AKA Lauren Luke said...

Bobo Sora, I love the idea of art supplies but don't want to get it dirty as the cubby hole bottom is made of material. Hmm I will think of something :)

Feen said...

It would be a perfect jewelry organiser. Put small hooks for necklaces and bracelets in the cubbies behind the side door and use the drawers for bangles. You can buy those velvety ring and earring holder trays and slide those in the top shelf and pull out the whole tray to see your choices.

Sandy said...

I'd use it as a nail polish station. It looks perfect to store nail art stuff and nail polishes. It is a very beautiful piece of furniture Lauren. =)

Bobo Sora said...

Yeah jewelry! Can we see how it turns out? :)

verylala said...

I'd put my jewellery in ! Depending on how tall it is, you could put a chair in front of it and add a mirror into the backwall of it !
