Make Your Own Make Up Vanity

 Here are five different vanity set ups that you can make yourself.

Vanity with Lights and Ribbons

Unique vanity lights made with white Christmas lights and ribbon.


vanity with straightner storage

 I love how the shelf has holders for the straightener and blow dryer. This is a great idea since you could store it while it’s still hot. I would have to add one for a curling iron as well, but worth it.


suitcase vanity

Love the idea of using an old suitcase as a vanity. I would make it float though; I’m not a big fan of the legs.


Shelves and Mirror Vanity

Mirror on the wall with two floating shelves underneath. Nice clean look.


Table and Mirror Vanity

I saved the best for last. I love all the storage they have fit into this area. The glass top is an amazing idea so you can see what is there without making a huge mess.



Repurposed Challenge #2 ( Dresser – 25 )

I was challenged by Michelle to find 25 ways to repurpose a dresser. This one was a little hard because most repurposed dressers I found were actually upcycled dressers. In another words, most dressers were still used as dressers they were just upcycled to look nicer. However, after several days of searching, I think I found a good list. Some are used as storage but not for clothes…..
