Today I wanted to share my new makeup vanity where I store and use all of the new makeup I talked about in my last post HERE. I rearranged and The Man created a vanity where I can sit and do my makeup. Below are three pics from my 2014 Barbie Dream Closet reveal.
This is where I did my makeup for several years....standing here, using my vanity mirror, and storing my "most often used" supplies in the top shallow drawer.
I grew weary of this setup and started thinking about using the top of the dirty clothes bins....I mean, just look at all that wasted real estate!
I was just going to move everything over here and use
a small stool to sit on. The Man's wheels started turning
and came up with something much better......
Wait for it...
Is The Man smart or what!
He also cut down my magnifying mirror to the perfect height.
I made a cover for this little stool and also for the bench you see at
the upper left...good old drop cloth! I just tuck the stool back in the corner
when not in use.
This acrylic organizer (HomeGoods) is the only new piece
I purchased. I already had the other organizers.
I keep some tools, sponges and pre-moistened wipes (to clean makeup off my hands & brushes),
in this 3-drawer unit.
I've been using this lipstick tray for a few years but recently added this glass dish ($Store)
with small crystal filler (originally from Michael's) to hold glosses and such that were always
Originally, I stored folded sweaters in this glass cabinet above the makeup vanity, but I decided it was
a much better place to display some of my purses.
Pretty and colorful!
The previous makeup area is now home to jewelry and perfumes.
I really like this tiered bracelet holder...HomeGoods a few years ago.
More jewelry in the top 2 drawers, and....
Surplus supplies and such...let's just call it an organized "junk drawer," shall we?
So what do you think? I love it! The Man made such a nice area for me to sit and work some cosmetic magic....well, at least I try. And before you even ask, he is all mine and you cannot borrow him!
He is just as sweet as his smile indicates!
Hope you have enjoyed this post. I'm having fun kind of mixing up what I post about, so who knows what will be on the agenda for next time! Please come back for a visit any time.
I hope to be joining some of these lovely ladies this week:
