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?

No, the lights are separate but the mirror itself is only $9.99 (Ikea Kolja) and the lights were $14.99 (Ikea Ledberg). They are actually three separate pieces, but I only used two of them. They also have ones that come in four pieces for $29.99 :smileyhappy:

So…I went to IKEA and picked up the mirror and lights tonight! It will be awhile before everything gets set up but I cannot wait!! Thanks again for the idea :smileyhappy:

Spice racks... that's genius!!  I get so worried about hanging things in our place.  I feel like I'd do something wrong & the second I fill it up, everything will come crashing down :smileysad:

The nail polish racks lured me in.  Where did you get these and how many polishes can one hold?  I like it as long as they come preassembled.  I hate putting things together.  Thanks!

They're from Ikea! They're actually spice racks. They don't come preassembled but it takes about 2 minutes to assemble each one! It's very basic and very easy :smileyhappy: Promise! They hold about 20-24 nail polishes a piece. Keep in mind it comes in a birch color; I painted them.

You did a great job.  I keep hoping I will find something easy, but it looks like I am going to have to do some work if I want a rack that is not plastic.  I currently have 114 nail polishes, and that number will keep growing, so I would need at least 5-6.  Add painting, and that is too much work for me.  My SIL swears by IKEA, but I dread the place as I hear nothing there comes assembled.  Her dream is my nightmare.  

 

It reminds me of when we ordered the furniture for my son's nursery.  For some reason, they refuse to assemble cribs.  We waited until we knew the gender to order the furniture.  I wanted white for a girl and natural for a boy.  It was supposed to take 12 weeks, but took almost 5 months.  They called me to tell me the furniture was ready the day before I ended up delivering him.  It was delivered five days after he was born.  My husband did not put the crib together until he was over four months old.  He had no crib for four months!  He only slept in play pens and the co sleeper.  We do not put things together here.  If I buy something unassembled, it will sit in a box forever.  I have a toy shelf in a box I bought over a year ago.

I would also say it depends on the size of the polish. I have a lot of OPI and Essie, which are on the larger end but if you have a lot of Julep or Sally Hansen (the cylinder looking ones), you can fit way more!

I have all of the ones you mentioned plus a lot more, including Urban Decay minis which are very small and Deborah Lippmann's, which are quite bulky.  I completely forgot that I had a Sally Hansen until I read your comment.  It is Dry Kwik, not an actual polish, but it looks like a polish.  I must have counted it in my total since it is somewhere inside my bins.  I am unimpressed with it, so I have not used it in a long time.

Oh my gosh, that's terrible! The spice racks contain four pieces and you only have to screw in four screws and the holes are predrilled! I thought three racks would be enough but clearly I was being optimistic lol I do like the look of it though compared to plastic ones. Best of luck on your search!

Thank you.  I like the look of it too.

You do not want to ever see what I use for a"vanity" , It is an entire bathroom that used to be themaster and the smaller walk thru closet in what used to be my childs very first room.....

 

I do not think I could find a vanity to work ( I also have my theater make up and costumes in the mix )

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

i actually don't have any makeup in my vanity! i use the drawer for different odds and ends that i may need (extra tweezers, scissors a pen, etc).  all of my makeup is in 2 alex 9 drawers

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

You don't have to have all your makeup fit in your vanity! I love my vanity, but if I need to find one to fit my collection, I would need She Hulks vanity.

 

I desperately need to grab two or three Alex nine drawers to store the rest of my collection more elegantly lol

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

I love looking at these vanities :smileyhappy: It actually inspired me to bring in a contractor to see what I could do in regards to adding a vanity and wall to wall closet. So, once we settle on a design and it's good enough to show off, I'll let you know :smileyhappy:

In attempts to reel the thread in and get back to reality, here's my updated make up area! I got a matching jewelry armoire which is already full...I also have an ugly little set of drawers with skincare, drugstore, and nailpolish stuff.

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

I have not dropped by in a while, so I have not seen your setup expand.  Looking good.  My kids have stolen every square inch of space in this tiny house, so I am jealous of all of that space you have to get ready.  When I am done with little ones, I need: 1. a bigger house, 2. a cool vanity and 3. lots of space that is mine, mine, mine, all mine.  There are even bath toys in my shower (not theirs).  I take them out all the time, but they magically make it back in.

Such a cute set up. Love the armoire. I want a little beauty/jewelry corner like this someday.
