Organize and Accessorize Your Vanity 0

“Every girl needs a good vanity” – at least, that’s what I told my husband when convincing him to along with me getting one.

vanityI haven’t had a vanity table since I was a teenage girl.  There’s something so romantic about the classic vanity.  A place that’s just for you, to do yourself up and feel pretty and girly.  The best part about having a vanity is accessorizing it.  I like to combine practical storage items with decorative accents like framed photos and little statues.  Mostly sentimental things that remind me of my loved ones or favorite travels.  I’m also a sucker for antiques, so it gives me a place to display my favorite trinkets and treasures.

I’d like to share with you some of my favorite finds for vanity accessories, both practical and decorative.  The first think you need is a place for your jewelry.  If you want something to hold your jewelry on top of the vanity, go with something stylish like the Bijou Jewelry Tree by Umbra.  You’ll also need something to organize cosmetics.  I’m a fan of the Personal Organizer with Drawers because it has divided compartments plus drawers.

Make up and jewelry storage are the most important places to start when it comes to accessorizing your vanity.  After that, you can add in all the little fun things.  Find a fancy hairbrush and hand mirror set, or mix and match little jars for holding small bits and pieces.  Remember, it’s a space that’s just for you and should reflect who you are and the things you love most!
