If you haven't read my blog for a while, you may not know that I share a vanity with my daughter in our shared bathroom. It's a great place to sit and take care of morning activities and it saves space having only one vanity in the bathroom but with a shared space, comes compromise. So, recently we went through this revision on how we can effectively organize our vanity. First, let me explain what my issue was with her stuff.
My daughter uses hair and facial products. My products are stored in my mirror cabinet so they are out of sight when not in use. Her supplies, however, are cluttering up the vanity top. As a result of this, I can't open the vanity without moving the supplies and knocking them over - usually on the floor. Ugh. Not fun. This would happen almost every morning. It was quite frustrating.
So, here is how we modified the vanity to make it more user-friendly for both of us.
Organizing Hair and Facial Products Cheaply
First, I measured the opening between the mirror to the wall on both sides of my vanity mirror. And, then went to the craft store to find the right bin. I found these cute chalkboard front bins for a $1.50 each. Score!
I used 2 nails for each and a hammer and hung the box on the wall so both sides were symmetrical with each other. And then I hooked the bin onto the nails so the nails would hold the box securely. It was so easy.
This gives me more space on the vanity top and we are both pleased with the outcome.
My daughter did a great job labeling the bins and then we added all the supplies into the appropriate bin.
