On the Search for the Perfect Vanity!

Nov 19

I have needed a vanity for years. I have so much makeup, hot rollers, straightners etc that my husband is threatening to divorce me if I don’t share the bathroom ( not really but he does get frustrated with all of my beauty paraphenaila) I began searching for vanities online a few weeks ago and I cannot find one thing that will work within my space or fits in with my interior design aesthetic.

I am looking for a dark cherry, very simple small vanity with a stool, not a chair.  Seems like an easy task right? Well, its not.  Every vanity I have found looks like it belongs in an old lady’s house or has Barbie on it.  What is a girl to do?

I started thinking about purchasing a desk and then just hanging a cute mirror on the wall and covering my own stool to match my space but then I think there has got to be a vanity out there for me…

What do you guys think? What should I do? Settle for a vanity out there or make my own out of odds and ends peices?
