Have you ever wished for more space to store your makeup? If so, this Ikea hack is for you. Not only does it give you a sexy vanity space but the glass top allows you to see the placement of every piece of makeup you own! No more digging through a makeup bag for your foundation or blush. Special thanks to msTapioca for this fab idea! **NOTE** The video displays the small shelf being used to create this vanity. The larger shelf is more stable. The Atlanta Ikea was sold out of the large shelf at the time of this post.
The items you will need are:
Ekby Gruvan Shelf – There are 2 sizes to choose from: 31 1/8″x 7 1/2″ for $29.99 or 46 7/8×11″ for $39.99.
4 Legs of your choice. A good choice is 4 Adils legs $3.50 each. The screws that come with the legs are too long and will go through the shelf so you need to go to the “Missing A Part” area at Ikea, find the screws numbered 108458 & take 20 of them (5 for each leg).
1 Mirror of your choice. The Kolja line is good for high humidity places like a bathroom so that’s what I chose. $9.99
1 Stool of your choice. The Nils stool allows you to change out the cover making it a great option. $44.99
1 Container for brushes if you want to keep them on top of the vanity.
