So you've picked up a vintage dresser from a trendy thrift store, you've finished up the DIY refurbishing and picked the perfect spot for it to live in the corner of your bedroom.
But the process doesn't stop there! Take time to add some more elements to your timeless piece for a full, vintage look. We know sprucing up a classic can walk on a fine line, but we're here to help.
Viva la Vase
Time to break out the porcelain, friends. Your classic blue and white vases add a beautiful contrast with the wood of the dresser. As useful as they are beautiful, these vases are the ideal piece to add a touch of elegance to any design ensemble. Hold flowers, marbles, or nothing at all in these vases, they'll look good either way.
Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall
No dresser montage is complete without a mirror for your everyday grooming needs.
A mirror is a centerpiece in itself and mixes well with all the other elements that end up on your dresser. You can find plain circular mirrors in stores or if you're looking to get as vintage as possible, hit the streets to find a rustic original at local yard sale.
A Touch of Green
Plants are always the answer. Adding some green to the picture can tie in a nice contrast, especially if you're keeping the natural wood look.
Don't Forget the Art!
These pieces are the perfect amount of vintage to pair with your timeless new cabinet that will rest underneath. A tribute to the classics and the era of pinup girls, your new-to-you dresser will be matched completely.
