What girl doesn't want a gorgeous vanity but really doesn't have the space or the budget. I was inspired to make my own! And I knew just where to go to get my supplies... IKEA :) This vanity even has lights :) Here's how I did it and what I used below
Here is what you'll need
- Anchor Nails for hollow walls
- Three Pieces of Wood - you can find at any hardware store
Depending on the height of your vanity you'll need to add this for support
Sorry I don't have good pictures of my step by step instructions but I've added a diagram below to explain
After I gathered all my supplies, I positioned my Ikea shelf exactly where I wanted it. I used a pencil to mark my wall for placement.
After marking your placement marks, add your wood pieces with your anchor nails or nails to secure your wood panels.
I decided to add drawers to the bottom of my vanity for storage and support. You can definitely find great options in Ikea depending on your preference.
Add your shelf to sit nicely on your wood panels and drawers. Make sure of course that your drawers line up correctly with your extra wood panels.
Now add your mirror to the shelf, I decided to just sit my mirror on my shelf on an angle since it is in a secure corner of my room and won't easy fall. I've had this up for awhile and never had any issues.
Now the fun part ... adding the lights. It was easier than I thought. They already have doubled sided tape on them. All I needed to do is peel and place them where I wanted.
You are now done and can enjoy setting up your custom vanity.
If your on a budget and need great organizers I found really great decorative options in Michaels. (shown in the main picture)
I hope you can follow my directions sorry again I didn't get a chance to give you a visual step by step. I hope the diagram below helps :)
Enjoy and Stay chic xoxo
