Early interesting Cars:
Today: Makeup table/desk/position
My brother’s wife Mozelle was a pretty lady. She also loved to ‘fix-up’. She had never had a spot dedicated in a home specifically for make-up. I was commissioned to build their retirement home. A beautiful 2800ft structure with a lake view. Mozelle decided this house would have a make up area.
On the house plans she off-set a section 6’ x 3’ specifically for that. A custom made table top with a stack of drawers at each end. The wall and top was lined with lights like I had seen in the movies of stars dressing rooms. She was thrilled with the winging mirrors either side and on the wall behind.
When we got this house back it had Shirl’s old dressing table but with so much other furniture in the room, Sherry opt’d to just remove it. She chose to do her make up in the master bathroom.
I took a trip down stairs where I still had Shirl’s make up table. It was made from an antique dresser. I decided to add a Formica top and cut it 20 inches to fit in a small section of our walls that is left. LOL
She seems to like it very much, but refused to have her picture taken sitting at it. She is shy of cameras. She fussed the whole time we hiked the Appalachian Trail that the only pictures of her was her backside.
Of course this girl needs no assistance from makeup to show her beauty, but TELLING ANY OF YOU WOMEN THAT fits the old Navy saying ‘That is like Peeing in the Wind’ (Cleaned up a little for a family blog.) ;-)
Anyway we are both happy with it. I only have to add a mirror on the wall to augment the magnifying mirror installed.
PS: Ok, I admit the trail pictures are added because she refused to pose! Remember, when you read this that I love you sweetheart . ;-)
