Okay, this isn’t a total DIY, because I bought the mirror, but you get what I mean. As most of you know, we moved to Texas a few months ago. Up until now, I had been using my little gold vanity table from Urban Outfitters. Which I loved, but I was definitely outgrowing it. My makeup took up more space than it should have (see below):
I finally accepted that it was time for an upgrade, so I looked into buying a new vanity table. To my surprise, they’re about $700 and up. I couldn’t justify spending that much, no matter how much I like make-up. So I ended up making my own set.
I purchased the Hollywood Glow XL 2.0 Vanity Mirror from Impressions Vanity and paired it with a computer desk I bought from Amazon. Altogether, I spent $400, a fraction of the cost of an actual vanity set.
This mirror is beautiful and has some really cool features:
- custom-made premium LED vanity bulbs for daylight bright white lighting that renders more accurate colors, saves up to 90% energy, and lasts 25 times longer – a smart investment that actually saves you money in the long run
- Detachable base for easy wall mounting
- Side-mounted accessory power and optional USB charging outlets for all your beauty accessories and device charging needs
- Easy-to-reach dimmer switch for quick and accurate lighting control
I’m in love with the size of the desk as well it has two drawers, plus the tray in the center, so I have plenty of room to organize my makeup. Altogether, it was such a nice upgrade and I’m so happy with how it came out!
