Women crave many things in life. Let’s count them: a room filled with shoes, chocolates, a magic stick to make all cellulite go away, a slim, fit body, and a makeup vanity. At least those are some I would love to have. A makeup vanity is something that every woman should have in her bedroom, no matter how big or small the room is. That being said, I’d like to give you some ideas for a do-it-yourself makeup vanity. Making one is easy, practical, and most importantly, cheap.
No, this makeup vanity doesn’t come from IKEA, but it follows the same principle as the Swedish brand: compiling and assembling small pieces into one big piece. There is a joke circling around the Internet that at an IKEA job interview, you need to assemble your own chair. Well, that is the case here as well.
A similar approach of collect, assemble and compile works here, but with a little twist. The vanity desk is a little bigger, and you start from the big pieces. Once you have the big piece, you can work down to the smaller parts.
As you’ve noticed so far if you’re reading my blog, I love reusing, repurposing, and recycling old items. A Singer sewing machine is a piece of furniture that is so versatile, you can use it for different items. Here, I’ll show you a way to transform it into a makeup vanity desk.
I said at the beginning that no matter how big or small your bedroom is, you definitely need a makeup vanity. Well, for those with a small bedroom, utilizing the wall is one way to add the dream piece into your room. Check it out: simple, elegant and practical.
Don’t give up because of the language; you’ll still be able to understand the process of making this vanity. I had to include it due to its practicality, as you can move it around anywhere in the house.
If you know anything about interior design, one thing that’s certain is that silver is the color of sophistication. Nothing looks as sleek and as elegant as silver. And the color’s usage goes beyond interior design; even many iPhones come in a silver color. That being said, for those who want a modern, sophisticated and contemporary vanity desk, this is the one.
This is another way to utilize your wall for a vanity desk. With this idea, you take things up a level (literally and figuratively). For those with a high ceiling, employing this vanity will be a dream scenario.
As you can see by the pictures, you need a long and big bedroom for this to work. But if you are blessed with such bedroom, don’t skimp on the makeup vanity.
