An Easy, Inexpensive, Organized, Chic Vanity.

vanityHere is the deal. I feel as if I have hacked the whole vanity situation. While the dresser it sits on was  in my nursery and my girlhood room and the beautiful mirror above it lived not only there too but in my own mother’s as well, I have a special affection for everything here. That’s because, yes, there is nostalgia but also because I’ve made things so easy for myself. So here is how I created an easy, inexpensive, organized, chic vanity.

I believe in a grab and go jewelry situation so what I wear most often is on the three-tiered plate system (Target) and also the cutest giraffe dish (Anthro). I’m more likely to amp out an outfit or you know, my yoga pants.

I also have recently talked about how much I love and adore trays. Guys, can I just tell you this is a game changer? I can pick it up and easily wipe down the area where I do my makeup. I can also carry that acrylic tray (Target) and my gold hand mirror (Target) to other parts of the house, like the front room where I can watch Bravo and put my makeup on there. vanity2It’s also important to have some organization within the tray for two reasons. First of all, it would be a hot mess if everything was just thrown in there. Secondly, it helps me keep the makeup I use on the daily in a kind of capsule makeup situation. I use these copper/rose gold organizers from Target. To be fair, I have a ton of other makeup stored in the top drawer of my dresser, along with everything I use to blow my hair out.

It’s truly a one-stop shop…but one that I can move too.vanity1Because I kept it pretty minimal on the top of the dresser, I chose three of necklace that kind of pull colors from the rest of my room and laid them out. It’s kind of a glamorous touch to me. It’s like I am Elizabeth Taylor picking through my diamonds except these are from H&M. Ha.

What’s your vanity situation? Did you pull any tips from me and do you have any tips for me?

    I have that divided tiered tray from Target and it is full of my everyday makeup. I love it. Off to check out the acrylic tray because who can’t use that in their life???

    I love the metallic-edged organizers! They add something special. I use acrylic drawer organizers for my makeup to keep it tucked away, but that’s mostly because there are always little hands grabbing for my mascara and lipstick if I leave it out and visible. I love the way your vanity looks – VERY Elizabeth Taylor! 😉

      I love that look too! And if there were little fingers here, that’s what I would go with!
