Organization Help?

Ok, no 30x30 or What I'm Loving... today. (Sorry.) I need help, so of course I need all of you to provide that  :)

This involves organization and our bedroom. First, a quick overview of the bedroom ihere.
Ok, here is how my accessories are organized and here is an overview of all my makeup.
Basically after spending years getting everything organized just right, I'm ready to overhaul it.

I've lost my mind. Stick with me.

We have the bedroom set, and my vanity is antique but it "goes" with everything, as do the shelves. It started when I saw this:

Hayworth Jewelry Armoire
Um, gorgeous right? So, that would be my new jewelry organization. It'll probably go on the small wall where the shelves are. I think it would be ok in our bedroom, but not by itself. There's a whole Hayworth collection (of course there is, Pier 1. Of course there is.) So, 2 pieces of it will "fit" better. I've come up with 2 options.

Option 1
Hayworth Vanity
Adding the vanity. The current vanity and the shelves would have to go in other rooms. A big problem is that the Hayworth vanity comes with that one measly drawer. Go look at my current makeup collection and you'll see why that's a problem. I could add ANOTHER piece from the collection to house the makeup, but now this is just really getting out of hand. 

Option 2
Hayworth Upholstered Bench

Add the bench. It would go at the foot of our bed. So you'd have the bench, keep the antique vanity, and the new jewelry armoire going where the shelves are. Shelves would go in another room. I'm leaning towards this option because it's cheaper and buying a new vanity when I don't need one that won't even house my makeup collection doesn't make a lot of sense. Even to me. But will this look ok? Is it crazy to have so many different kinds of furniture in one room? So, welcome to the dilemma. I need help, suggestions, whatever you've got. Bring it.

I like the bench idea. But you know me. I always say both.

I almost commented on your old post :D Love the double vanity in the bathroom. We need that. Ha, we need a master bedroom with bath. We have an old house (1944). It's nice the see what a clean bedroom looks like! We have a bench but it just collects junk. The one you've featured is pretty though. August might like it!

I totes think you can mix and match. Hold off on the vanity and get the bench for now. Check it and then you can always adjust if need be.

I don't think you've lost it at all. :)

Bonnie said...

I like the bench. I have always wanted to be cool enough to have any of these in my room, but I suck, so I don't. :(

I like them all- not sure what spacing would be like when they are all in there together and shelves would look great by themselves in another room.

That vanity is seriously divine, and I know I'd be hard pressed to leave it at Pier 1.

Why not the vanity and the bench? I think the jewelry organizer might be too much mirrored antique fabulousness for one room.

Unless of course you decided you wanted a dressing room instead of a guest room...

I love them ALL! So pretty and clean and very chic.

I love them all! I would go with keeping your current vanity like you're leaning towards. And DEFINITELY get that bench! LOVE :)

So, I just looked at your bedroom overview, and I have the same cheesy sign that you have above your TV, over my bed. And I'm also having a bedroom identity crisis over here.

I love love love that vanity. I say go for it with that saucy bench!

LOVE all of these. I am really loving the glass being used on furniture :)

Kavery said...

Yes to the bench and vanity. If they fit into your current colour scheme that is.

Elle Sees said...

Oh wish u could do them all!

Jess said...

Oh my gosh - I love it all! Now you've got me wanting to switch up my room too!

I agree with you though - ditch the new vanity ;)

Daniela said...

I love benches. I wouldn't think twice. Get the armoire and the bench!

Isabel said...

I say bench and armoire. I like your current vanity and think it's more functional than the one you pictured - I've seen that in store and I think it'd be too small for you. Take pics of whatever you do!
