A messy Morning... but pretty results!!

I have had a busy and very messy morning, dressing a washstand and dresser. I had waxed and cream washed these two a few weeks ago, but hadn't got around to dressing them. So, this morning, I decided to get on with finishing them and made a mess on my dining table in the process! But, I think the results were worth the mess I know have to tidy up!!
Sorry, the lighting in the photos is a bit bright, but I took them quickly so that I could write this post whilst eating my lunch... multi tasking!
This is my first attempt at a little shabby chic wash stand, with one of my little pots, a box of french soaps and a little pink pearl heart shaped bracelet, amongst other pretty items and a filled drawer.

A dresser fit for a fairy! Complete with fairy books, turned rosewood mushroom, amethyst heart, fairy wings in a jar and on and on... 
As you can see, I have been having fun :0)

Off to clear up now and take better pics before I list them later on Etsy.
Hope you are all having a great day too,
Julia xx
