Mini Vanity Tour - BEFORE - Organizing Ideas

Hello, everyone!  I hope all had an amazing weekend!  Today, I want to show a Mini Vanity Tour.  "Before" is in the title because over the next few months I am buying new organizers and other new pieces to give it a face lift.  I figured it would be best to show you how it is now before I change it up.

This is the first time that I've owned a vanity and I'm not sure how I ever lived without one!  I love having my girly space!  In case you're wondering, my vanity is actually a vintage desk and a garage sale find--I literally paid $15!  As for the chair, it was an old worn piece that I repainted white and distressed.  I've been able to do this on a budget and had so much fun putting this together!

*Let's get into it!  Below are overview pictures as well as the inside of each of the 4 total drawers.

*Tabletop view- holds mirror, go-to hair products & makeup brushes inside mason jars.
*Black stand (thrift store find): holds homemade earring organizer, acrylic lipstick
holder (Amazon) and sprays. Ceramic birds & silver serving tray are also from Amazon.
Drawer #1 (Top left): Holds skincare items and most everyday makeup and palettes.
Drawer #2: Contains my jewelry box, nail polish and manicure tools/etc.
*Wooden crates can be found at Jo-Ann Fabrics or Michaels and stained.
Drawer #3 (located on right above chair): holds essential oils, brush holders and
molds that I use for homemade lotion bars.
Drawer #4 (last & largest): All makeup bags, waxing set, foam rollers and natural
beauty product ingredients such as Shea Butter/ Almond Oil, etc.

I hope you enjoyed and found this helpful.  Do use a vanity?  How do you organize your beauty collection?  Share down below!  If you liked this post, please google+, comment and join this site (follow) for more :)  Have a great day and see YOU Thursday!
