This is way less complicated than some utubers make it look.  I have made 6 of them so I can pretty much whip one up in about 2hours now.  The first one was intimidating and after that it was all good.  When I move I'm going to use the same concept and some inexpensive wood so I can paint them and decorate them.   This is my#1 DIY Fave:

Brushes!  This thing is usually 40% off at Michaels so around $25 I think.  I love, love, love this because it eliminated a lot of space that I needed on my vanity top.   Mine is filled with Walmart popcorn (88 cents per bag!)

Rotates 360 degrees.

Sooooooo that's too much stuffEmbarrassed

I probably have a bit more nail polish than that because that's my main addiction.
I have a lot of make-up brushes because I tend to pick them up when I see what I like
I have a lot of eyeshadows (they are ALL depotted and in Z-Palettes) because they take up a LOT of space otherwise. 
Not too much lipstick but prob more than I can use
Lots of glosses
Way too damn much of er'thang

I refuse to spend a lot of money on each item but at the end of the day I have more than I can use before it goes bad.  Its more of a hobby/obsession to be honest

I do have a "girl cave" that is a combination walk-in closet, hair/wig storage, vanity, nail station and lots of storage.  I love it and can spend hours and hours in there just playing around with colors, styles, etc.  It is a bit of an escape / me time.  My family uses it as well because I have a huge mirror, lighting and all the hair care products in the house in thereLOL

However - Nobody NEEDS this much sh*t.  I barely ever wore make-up/nail polish for most of my life and once I was settled and had less going on I lost my damn mind (past 3yrs) Proceed with cautionLOL

Most of my stuff is DIY (I like to make stuff).

MsBMW - Can you give an example of what you need from your vanity and what you need to store?  I have lots of super inexpensive solutions that I love.

I love this topic obviously.   I'll post some of the DIY stuff I found on You-Tube that helped me get organized. 


I was thinking something like this with lights..sorry I get confused on how to post pics..

Wow those are beautiful!!!  I really love the ones with the see through tops.

Honestly you can make a vanity out of ANY tabletop.  I started with a work desk I wasn't using anymore.  It was a nice size to start and I used empty boxes to create tiers.   Sometimes I cover them with decorative duct tape.  I have a few of those decorative storage boxes to stack or place them to create prettier "shelves" but for the most part I used amazon and drugstore.com shipping boxes.   And wicker baskets have been great for hair products.

That's actually really good use of those ice trays. I honestly didn't even recognize them as ice trays til she said something.

I usually find this near the crafters storage area.  There is one other department in the store where they keep them I don't remember what the section was.  The best ideas I find end up being something that was originally made for / by craftersLOL

And the dollar store is a vanity makers friend.  Especially for containers, glass and acrylic storage stuff and even beads.
