The teeny tiny makeup table I built from an Ikea shelf and table legs. I’m seriously impressed with myself on this one. I set out to make this, but apparently there are 2 sizes of the same shelf. Luckily I don’t have very much makeup, so this little one works perfectly, but if you needed more room, you could get the bigger shelf, OR they make a tabletop like this too. It was super easy too, I drilled the holes (with a POWER DRILL!) and screwed the legs on with shorter screws I bought at the hardware store by myself with NO HELP AT ALL. I know, I’m practically a carpenter now lol.
I’ve been using either the bathroom mirror to put on makeup and get ready to go places (standing, ew) or this huge curio cabinet with a mirror in the kitchen. Yeah, I felt pretty ghetto getting ready to go out in the kitchen. This little table is my own little space and all my makeup and everyday jewelry is here. The stool isn’t the most comfy thing ever (I like to fold my legs under me), but I don’t sit there long, so it’s not bad. I also really liked the original oval mirror she used, but I had to get all this stuff from Michigan (where we visited Josh’s family and they have an Ikea) to North Carolina with two dogs and a lot of jostling. Nothing broke! One of the four mirrors has a tiny chip on one edge, but I’m pretty excited everything was in relatively one piece.
We desperately need an Ikea somewhere near me. I love it there.
