As some of you may know I've recently changed made the spare room in my house into a dressing/vanity room. I'm completely obsessed with it and while I'm not the most organized person, having this room makes me want to organize everything! Here are some updates.
My favorite thing is this makeup desk. It was Jason's school desk when he was little so I just touched up a little of the black paint that had chipped off, repainted the top w/ a high gloss paint and bought a piece of glass to go over the top. My absolute FAVORITE thing would have to be the Chanel logo. I found the logo on Google, printed it out, stuck it on the desk and layed the glass over it. I feel like it really makes the desk.
I got this cushion from Walmart since sitting on that hard piece of wood was no fun
This piece above is a letter holder from TJ Maxx that I got for $6.99. It holds 8 MAC palettes perfectly. I currently have 3 MAC palettes in front and 2 larger ones behind them.
This drawer in the middle of my desk basically held all my lashes, misc palettes and other stuff that I didn't use much. It was kind of messy since I would just throw stuff in there. Sooo...
I went to the $1 store and got these little white baskets to better organize it.
This thing here is actually a shoe rack that a neighboor of mine threw out. Nothing is wrong with it and it looks brand new. When I first saw it I immediately thought it would be perfect as an accessory holder. Plus I had this bare section of the wall that I've been wanting to cover up a bit. I find that having my accessories on display like this helps me use more of them. Before I would just rotate through the same 2 or 3 bracelets.
I'm not sure if I will keep this thing long term. If I find something better to put in that spot I will probably end up giving it away, but for now it works perfectly.
If you wondering what I did w/ my paper towel holder that I was using as an accessory holder.
I re-purposed it as a toilet paper holder since we already have one in the kitchen.
What do you guys think of the updates?
