Shabby Chic Dressing Table..

I was thinking outside the box with these odd china cups and saucers that I had stored in the kitchen cupboard. Until now had nowhere to put them or  any use for. I love to see vintage things all shabby chic-ly done up, so I was thinking what to do with these. 

How sweet do they look on my dressing table!?! Just the perfect size to put some make up and accessories in that I keep forgetting to use because they too were stored away in a box!!

Can you think of some more good ideas for the left over odd cups and saucers?

    This is so beautiful Claire – I love the table, it looks so decorative. I am guessing that you could also use the cups to grow plants or bulbs in? Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo x

    Thats such a cool idea, my mum has some dishes with the yellow flower on it, I'm pretty sure its over 35 years old!

    This is such a fantastic idea! I was only saying the other day that I never use a cup and saucer I was once gifted and it's really pretty, just very big. I need to do this. Thanks for the inspiration x
