Roomy Vanity and Triptych Mirror

Steps:6
Other Ideas:
Decorating, Furniture
Yes, a starlet uses one to prep for her close-up, but vanities are good for more than just, well, vanity. They store toiletries and keep jewelry organized (and having one means never fishing your mascara out of the sink). Most for-sale styles look a bit too glamour girl, but this smart, modern table is just right. You're welcome, dahhhhling.
Materials
  • Nightstands
  • Plate glass
  • Paint trim
  • 3 wood gallery frames, at least 20 inches tall
  • Mirrors cut to fit the frames (order from your local glass supplier)
  • 4 one-inch hinges
