DIY Bedroom Vanity Ideas
There is nothing more relaxing than a room that makes you feel like you are at the spa.
A bedroom is a place where we can relax and unwind after a long day. So we want to make it as comfortable as possible.
Adding a piece of furniture with extra storage is always an amazing idea.
A makeup vanity desk in your bedroom is the perfect way to organize your skin care products, makeup items and beauty products.
And you don’t need a lot of space to do it! Even if you have a small room or small apartment, you can still incorporate a beautiful makeup table by incorporating these simple design ideas.
DIY Makeup Vanity Table Ideas
Garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores are the best thing when decorating on a budget.
You can save so much money on old furniture that you can give a new look to with a little paint and elbow grease. Plus it’s an easy way to decorate in your favorite color scheme!
When looking for makeup vanities it’s best to measure your room to ensure there is enough space to fit the vanity.
Determine where you will be placing your new vanity table. If the vanity will be going in a corner of the room be sure to take exact measurements so you can find the perfect choice for your small space.
Best Makeup Vanity Ideas
Here are some helpful things to consider when shopping for your new bedroom vanity makeup station.
- Mirrors – do you want a modern mirror, hanging mirror, or will you be building a DIY vanity mirror? Perhaps a round mirror or lighted mirror is the best choice for your interior design style. If going with a lighted mirror be sure to purchase the correct size light bulbs. This will save so much aggravation later! If you get a lot of natural light, a small bedroom wall mirror may be the right choice.
- DIY Makeup Vanity Ideas – think outside the box when shopping for a store-bought vanity table. Are you looking for a modern vanity desk or do you want a vintage piece? Consider turning an old sewing machine table or vintage sewing table into a unique vanity. Another idea is to turn an old dressing table into a custom makeup storage unit. You can easily add a glass top for the top of the table. Look for a piece with large drawers so you have ample space to store cosmetic products, makeup products and cosmetics items.
- Old Chairs – decide ahead of time if you want a modern look for your vanity chair, or if you want a vintage chair. Kitchen stools may be altered to fit your makeup vanity desk. Do you prefer clean lines or a modern design? You may find a chair with a solid wooden frame that just needs to be reupholstered.
The possibilities are endless when thrifting! Though, you do have to be in the right place at the right time.
