The dressing room features the adaptation and repurposing of vintage Birdseye maple cabinetry circa 1950, obtained at an estate sale. Originally a built-in bedroom set, Designer Lauren Levant separated and rearranged the pieces to create the dressing room's closets as well as a new double sink vanity for the bathroom. She raised the clothes armoires onto a new continuous platform she built and lined with LED light for dramatic and efficient shoe storage around the full perimeter of the room. Between some of the armoires, Levant added hanging rod sections and accessory sorting solutions.

There’s so much to look at in our house, I never get tired of any of it.”
