She's got legs...skinny silver legs...and she knows how to use them

I've always just called these vanities or the bathroom sink with metal legs, but the proper name for them is washstands or basin sinks. I think these washstands are incredibly elegant. They are so beautiful in their simplicity. However, I can't resist the urge to accessorize them!

In all the photos I've seen of these foxy legged beauties, the only thing I have ever
seen hanging from them is towels. I think that is very boring.
Where is the fun in that I say! I think it's high time we add fun and
fabulousness (is that even a word?) and more important
PERSONALITY to washrooms.

              I'd throw on some colourful bracelets, statement necklaces, anything sparkly, sequin scarves, etc... any pretty baubles that are hiding away in your drawers, wrap
one or two or a few creatively around the bars of these washstands.

Here's some samples of what I'd use:

I'd hang a cheeky ornament like this one:
(I was really looking for a sequin monkey to hang from the bars, but couldn't
find one, so this glittering croc will have to do for now!)

This snake bracelet would look incredible wrapped around the
top of one of the legs. And now you've got a perfect excuse to buy it,
"but honey, it's to
decorate the washroom!"

I'd hang a bunch of colourful statement necklaces like this one over one of the legs:

Or you can be like Coco Chanel and add strings of pearls

To give these vanities that punk bad ass vibe, I'd do like Aerosmith and tie this scarf on:

Or what would also be cute is to buy some ribbons or steal one
of your hubby's or boyfriend's ties (make sure it's one he no longer wants!) and
pin your dazzling brooches and hair clips to it and tie that tie to the crossbar.

For the holidays I'd add some crystal or  Xmas ornaments
strung on velvet ribbons, kinda like this (not as many thought!):

I think it would be fun to dress these ladies up, also it would be nice to get
to look at pretty jewels every day.

I have a bunch more photos, but I think it's too many for one post,
so I will do another post on these leggy vanities another time.
Waterworks has a nice selection of these washstands.

Would you hang your fav jewels off these metal leg sinks?
