A Vanity

vanity

One of January’s 3 New Things was to create a vanity in our bedroom. A place where I could keep my jewelry and nail polish. A place where I could do my makeup with the help of some natural light. I was looking for a vanity desk/table for the entire month. I would either find something ugly and cheap or others that cost over $500! This past weekend my friend and I walked into one of my favorite shops down the street and THERE IT WAS. The perfect size, the perfect color and only $135! I snatched it up and brought it home. Some little details I’d love to add:

  • A round mirror
  • A cute stool or chair
  • A few pieces to help organize beauty products (on top and in the drawer)
  • Maybe a lamp?

Do you have a space that you can call your own? Sure, I have my whole house but there’s something special about this table already. More photos to follow!

    Oh it’s so pretty! It’s hard to keep all the makeup + accessories in one place…I’ll have to think about adding a vanity to our room! xo, eliza

    I love this! Growing up, I always had a vanity, and I miss it. When I go home for the holidays, I always find myself at my mom’s vanity, getting dolled up. I find I’m more apt to put on makeup or spend extra time on my hair if I have a little space just for that purpose.

      I agree! It makes it fun vs standing in the bathroom getting in my husband’s way haha!

    It looks beautiful! I’ve always wanted one, but never really had the space. It’s a “One Day” thing when I’m fully settled and have no plans to move for a while!

      I definitely couldn’t have done it in our old apartment but our new place has such a big bedroom that it was the perfect time!

    That looks awesome! I had a vanity for ages. My dad made a built-in one for my bedroom growing up and then I always used a table once I moved out. Only recently did I stop using one and I kind of miss it.

      I never had one but a built-in one sounds amazing!!

    ah… I DREAM of having enough space to own a vanity. It makes no sense really. The fiance has an entire room for himself… I should definitely rearrange some things so I can have a vanity. :]

    This is what I’m looking for in our bedroom too! I’ve sort of been on the bargain hunt for, like, 3 years now : ) Can’t wait to see more!

      I definitely am glad I didn’t impulse buy something generic! Hope you find something soon :)
