I never thought it would be possible to be so
in love COMPLETELY OBSESSED with a space, but alas, it is!!
I first wrote about my DIY vanity several months ago, and since then I completely revamped it, and I’m so glad I did! Keep reading to get a tour–and the scoop on where you can get everything you need to do this on your own!
First I’ll start with the big pieces, that store all my products! I had the smaller shelf when I first built my vanity, but I found myself needing more storage. The bottom unit gives me all the storage I could ever want/need, and I love how the drawer pulls coordinate, even though they’re from different lines. Here’s how the drawers on both units look when they’re pulled open.Both these items are from IKEA, thus, making them super affordable! Here are the links:
Once I had that together, I obviously needed somewhere to sit! I wanted to go with a super luxe fluffy upholstered white chair–and then I thought about it.
Makeup + white fabric = a disaster waiting to happen.
So I decided to go with a ghost chair. I’ve been wanting one for a while, but I wasn’t sure where I would put it. It is the perfect addition to my vanity, and because it’s plastic I don’t have to worry about dropping makeup on it–and I think it leaves the space looking more open.
I got the Flash Furniture Ghost Side Chair from Amazon for $69.99. That was a steal, considering I saw these chairs selling for HUNDREDS of dollars on other sites! It arrived all in one piece, which was awesome!
Finally, I wanted to add some decorative touches. I installed IKEA lack wall shelves (they’re only $6.99 each!!) above the vanity, and filled them with inspirational mugs, picture frames, and a colorful clock. I found all of the knick knacks at Marshalls–which as we all know, is hit or miss! I definitely hit big that day!
Finally, I placed this crystal embellished box on top. I found this at Marshalls in the bathroom section, and I knew I had to have it!! It’s a great way for me to store all my every day, most used items. My makeup brush holder, is actually a tooth brush holder, that I also found in the bathroom section at Marshalls.

I’d love to see the spaces where you make your magic happen!
