When I first began entertaining the idea of creating a makeup studio room in my home, I was a little nervous because of the upfront investment.
I did A LOT of research to see what other artists liked/disliked about their setups.
I went all over Omaha trying to find some good deals on white furniture, because I had a vision of an all-white room.
I wanted three things. A table. A mirror. A shelf.
White desks/tables were $600+, full vanity’s were $1,000’s, shelves were $100+ and mirrors were all $150+ at NFM, the At Home Store, Home Goods, Target, Omaha Boutiques…
I was a little discouraged, until I came across my first find: a pretty mirror at Home Depot (of all places!?) when I was looking for some home improvement things!
The one in the photo below was under $50, and it’s heavy duty, so I decided to place it on top of the vanity table instead of on the wall.
Then I went online to IKEA because I saw several other makeup artists using their products.
These are the other two items I took a liking to:
MALM DRESSING TABLE
LACK WALL SHELF UNIT – sold out (Here’s some like them though: IKEA Shelves)
Katie and I took some time decorating the desk with some of our favorites.
Our advice to you is to make sure to keep the items you set out very simple and neat.
Too many things can cause clutter and chaos.
Like I preach a lot in other posts, less is more. 🙂
