Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.

I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.

 

Whats your set up like?

I actually found it at Walgreens a few months ago and debated getting a few more but didn't at the time. When I went back for more they only had one and it was cracked all the way across the front, I was so mad at myself For not getting more the first time!

Where did you get the shelf for your nail polish?  I love it.  The color matches the furniture in my room.  I think it could hold all of my polish if I got two or if it had an option to add a couple more rows.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I made them myself and painted them with a high gloss black paint to match my vanity, dresser, and bed set. It was pretty simple, the one thing I chose to do that most other racks don't have it put a thin board on the back because I wanted it a solid color rather than seeing the wall behind each shelf.  My husband couldn't believe how much polish I had, he said if I buy a new one I have to get rid of one which isn't a problem because I have plenty that I don't care for that I wouldn't be sad to see go!

I have 2 nearly identical and my brother in law made mine and then I painted it black. He said it was really easy!Screen Shot 2014-05-10 at 1.15.57 AM.png

That's exactly what we did as well! we are the "crafty" type as my friends like to call it and prefer to build what we can ourselves. A few years ago we were looking for a head and foot board for our king size bed and couldn't find anything reasonably priced that was made with actual wood so we built our own. It's good having the ability to do that or knowing someone that can, it can save you a lot of money and you can actually get a quality build piece.

Neither my husband nor I are crafty, so we have to buy everything. One look at his hands and you can tell he does not work with them. They are in way better shape than mine, probably because he gets manicures more often than I do.

Personally, I'd love to see more! Looks great! Those pulls are so unique.  I love your brush collection!!!!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Thank you, I really like the pulls as well. I considered getting new ones but decided a nice coat of paint would be better! And I've been working on building up my brush collection 

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Oh me too!!!! It's great to draw inspiration from!  I love the wine glasses for brush holders! Clever! 

And i love seeing everyone's makeup personalities! 

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I agree! It's nice to get ideas from other people then tweak them and make them your own! The wine glasses are from my wedding, they are some of the glasses that the wedding party used and we just had them in boxes so I decided they would be perfect for brushes! Then I found the yellow owl pot at Walgreens and had to get him for my face brushes, I went back to get another one but the only other one left was cracked :smileysad:

Aww I love the owl.

 

also whats the UD palette thing with the octopus on it??

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

That one is the fun palette, I also have the feminine palette but it's up for trade so it's not in the picture.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

 

Here's mine. I basically take up the entire top of our dresser. I also have a nail polish holder. It's a wee bit embarrassing....I have more stowed away in my bathroom and a bag of lip products that I'm not in love with hibernating in my pj drawer, lol. I wish I had better lighting and storage! image.jpg

LOL, I love the part where you said you have lip products hibernating in your PJ drawer.

That's a lot of surface space for playing on!

Love your nailpolish shelf!! I also really like that dresser, I love different kinds of wood.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I don't have a vanity, but I REALLY want one. I just don't know how to fit it in my house LOL. But I'm actively trying to find a way to make enough room, since I have to being the items I'm putting on into the washroom, then back into their storage drawers/bags.

a girlfriend of mine uses a tall end table with a drawer and has put a standup mirror behind it and a little stool. Her bathroom doesn't have much for counter space so she had to improvise,

Maybe a really small one with only one drawer? There are options out there for under $100!
