OK! So now it’s time for the fun stuff! As many of you, who have been reading my blog posts may already know, I’ve been speaking about revamping my Make-up Vanity for some time! As you can see in my first image below, I did my first DIY Make-up Vanity late last year and it was OK, But I wanted something that stood out a bit more and spoke TRUE to my Interior Decorating abilities! FINALLY, I was able to get this major project completed and I wanted to kick off my first post BACK with BEFORE & AFTERS and EVERYTHING in between! It took a lot of researching, browsing, and thought to make this PERFECT and I am so happy with the results.
Just as a FYI, I did purchase most of my items online from Amazon (You gotta over Amazon Prime!) and in-store at Target, and HomeGoods. It was quite a journey sifting through HomeGoods and Target BUT I was able to knock it out in two visits (Thank Goodness!). Just as a side note, I found it so much BETTER to go to both stores EARLY in the morning. It felt as if you were getting fresh inventory, more unique items, AND fewer people! Oh & in NYC, having fewer People is ALWAYS a GREATER EXPERIENCE!! Haha!
My First DIY Makeup Vanity on October 6, 2016:
IT’S COMING TOGETHER Right?….
CAN YOU TELL MY LOVE FOR ORCHIDS?? (HENCE MY BLOG’S NAME!) ♥ By the way, I chose Artificial Orchids because I don’t have time to water REAL ones! Haha!
I’M A LOVER OF GOLD & UNIQUE ITEMS! PLUS, I WANT A PUPPY TOO, SO THIS IS A DAILY MOTIVATOR!
AND…..Here it is!
My DIY final project for my Makeup Vanity! I truly love my white theme with a pop of pinks, greens, yellows, and golds. I definitely wanted a bit of a spring feel BUT simplistic “Moderness” as well. I find that accents of color gives you a bit of a joyous feel and that’s definitely my goal. Who doesn’t want to sit in their own “space” and feel joyous & peaceful?
Of course, I have a few pictures of my 2 favorite guys, as well as my daily notebook/journal and Bible. I’m super excited to expand more of my make-up, natural hair products, and fragrances, NOW that I have a central place to keep them organized and in view! I’m loving my little space and trust me, I only scaled this small because I’m in a one bedroom apartment in NYC. Haha! A bigger space in the future will call for a Grander Theme!
Do you have your own Make-up Vanity? Are you thinking about doing one yourself?
I’m excited to begin my next project coming soon!
