The more I move forward with beauty-blogging, the more that I have realized that I need some "personal space" to do so! I mean, its not just a beauty-thing or a blogging-thing, but I think that all of us girls need our own "space". Its just nice! I mean, the men get their "man caves" and "offices"...we get beauty areas! :)
I have always wanted a "Vanity" in my home, but we are pretty tight on space with living in a home in an urban area. Well, blogging has motivated me to "find some room"! :) And, my Mom gave me an amazing Conair Vanity Light up Mirror for Christmas. So, what can I say? I was motivated today!!!
With the expenditure that was Christmas, it might be another month or so before I am able to purchase a Vanity table, but figured I could go ahead and work with things I already have in the basement! So, I
"shopped my basement" and got creative! :) I spent a few hours today getting this all set up today and couldn't resist sharing some photos with ya'll!!! This is all set up in our spare bedroom that we weren't really using anyway. Sweet! My own spot! I LOVE it already. :) I can now keep all the items that I need to photograph, test, and review organized! :) Yay!!!
Okay, first of all...here is what I am looking at as far as vanity tables. If any of you guys have one of these, please let me know how you like it!!!
LOVE this one. Probably my fav.
I am a fan of clean lines. Sleek and Uncomplicated. LOVE!
This one is great too! Especially since it is less expensive...
and I don't really need it to have a mirror.
From Bed Bath and Beyond
This one is probably the best deal (so, I will likely get this one)...
With a coupon, right around $100. Plus, that includes the bench.
And, I like the fold away mirror and drawers.
Not as "Sleek" as Ikea, but practical and affordable.
So, here is the actual space that I have set up now! :) Pretty good considering this is all stuff found in my basement!
The basics....a chair, wicker storage, small table
and a couple lamps.
You can see it all a little better without the Chair. When I get my
Vanity Table it will go here with the wicker basket to one side
(and I would totally spray paint the wicker storage unit white...
yes, I love gettin crafty!)
A close up! And, lol, you can see my "Pammy Blogs" notepaper
that I had made. I needed something cute to include when adding
a personal note with my giveaways! ;) This is where I will be swatching
and snapping photos! The lighting is great in this room!
Plenty of space to store items that I am testing! :)
Just a "sneak peek" for ya'll, so you will
know whats coming for reviews!!!
Hope you enjoyed reading and looking at these photos! It will be fun shopping around for a Vanity! :) Yay!!!
