Hey Everyone, I get asked so often about my makeup room and unit I thought you might like to know a bit more about where I got it and all the details. What can I say…..my makeup room is my happy place. It’s where you’ll find me most of the time. I sit in front of my makeup unit to relax the way people would sit in front of the tv to relax. It’s my haven and my pride and joy. My makeup unit is from Ikea. I had been eyeing it up for a while when himself suggested we go to Ikea and have a look around my birthday last year…..I didn’t need to be asked twice I tell ya!! My unit is made up of a few different pieces. I picked this combo of pieces as it fits my space perfectly and gives me loads of storage. There’s literally hundreds of different furniture combinations for makeup units/dressing tables in Ikea so you’re sure to find one to fit your space and more importantly budget!!
So now the details…
The two tall 9 drawer units are from the ALEX range. They each have 5 shallow drawers and 4 deep ones. Between the two units I can fit my entire kit into them with room to spare!! I also have room for all my hair products, nail products and paperwork and boring stuff.
The tabletop is the LINNMON table and I just have two legs on it at the back. Then I attached it to the drawers at the front with shelf brackets.
The 2 drawer shelf on top of the desk is the EKBY ALEX. This is where I keep all my disposables that I use during makeups. All my tissues, cotton buds, wipes etc. all fit perfectly and are easy to get to while still looking nice and tidy.
My mirror is the STAVE 70cm x 70cm and I have 3 sets of LEDSJO wall lamps attached to the sides. These are quite pricey at €50 a pop without bulbs!! But for me they are the most important part of the whole unit. They really are super bright though so 2 sets would probably be enough lighting for makeup.
All the units come flat-packed so be prepared for a bit of work getting them all assembled. My very patient other half got roped into “helping” (he did the whole lot!!). Also it can pricey to have your purchases delivered from Ikea so it’s a good idea to think ahead for getting your bits home. I let down the backseat in my car and had just about enough room to fit them in. Phew!!
I’ll leave a couple of links below to some of the pieces so you can have a browse and pick your dream combo for your happy place 🙂
Until next time,
