IKEA Vanity Redecoration and Makeup Storage



Hey Guys!
A lot of you have been asking questions about my new IKEA Vanity that I put together this past weekend after I posted a photo of it on my instagram. To answer all your questions, I will be putting the names, prices, and links to all the products I picked up from IKEA so that you can easily navigate the website and find the pieces I purchased. I hope this gives you ideas for your own vanity and makeup storage! I am so excited I finally have a nice system in place. It is also the perfect set up for taking quality photos for my blog. I love how everything is all white, crisp and clean looking. I'm am already in the process of writing reviews for my blog so check back for those! Enjoy!

I have before and after video if you watch my "IKEA Vanity Redecoration and Makeup Storage" video at the bottom of this post.

  6. LOVE IT! I was thinking of using the same vanity and storage from Ikea. I love all the chic accessories you've used to make the vanity more personal.

  7. It looks great and I loved your perfume collection.

    I love perfume, but at least I have a good solid collection of ones I would continually repurchase that I love.

    Unless something that comes out that wows me completely -- I'll stick to what I have.

  9. Looks lovely! I had a quick question, how was the assembly for the Malm dressing table? Was it difficult? I'm thinking of getting one this weekend. Enjoyed this vid thanks for the info on all the items!;)

    1. It wasn't difficult at all. There was very few pieces that needed to be assembled and the instructions were relatively easy to follow!

  10. In love with it! And actually, it's pretty inexpensive for everything you get. I wish I could get a better set-up, but I'm going to wait until I move out. Nothing works in my dumb room. lol

  11. Sorry for asking but what size Cutlery tray did you buy? I'm getting the Malm dresser soon and can't find any tray to go with it, those would be great.
    Thanks, your room looks great wish i could fit some of the Drawer units in mine they're so classy x

    1. I'm pretty sure there is only one size at IKEA and I bought two which fit nicely in the Malm.

  15. I need this in my life, thank you so much for adding all the little details! I'm still not sure if I want the Alex table or the Malm like yours though. Does the surface get scratches easily? I think the Malm table is more shiny, do you know?
