If you’ve been longing for a space to sit and do your makeup that’s functional, pretty, and doesn’t take up too much space, then I’ve got an easy build for you – a DIY makeup vanity table! This vanity table is wall-mounted so it keeps the space light and airy. My favorite part of our recent closet makeover has nothing to do with clothes.
However, the fact that we finally got all the clothing and shoes organized allowed for this little nook to happen… My favorite part of the closet is my little makeup vanity area. A month ago, you would have found me sitting criss-cross applesauce on the floor in front of the mirror attached to the back of the closet door.
This DIY vanity table is a pretty simple build. I had it fully built and the paint drying within a few hours time, then hung it on the wall the next day.
All you’ll need to know to build a makeup vanity like this for yourself is how to make a few simple cuts and use a drill. My DIY makeup vanity is 36″ long, just a tad over 12″ deep and 5 1/2″ thick.
If you want to alter the other dimensions, you’ll have to switch up your wood sizes below and reconfigure accordingly. Run glue along the remaining cut edges of the 4″ long pieces.
After a few hours, paint both the vanity table and the 1″ x 6″ piece you cut. I used a semi-gloss black color and gave my pieces three coats. Attach the 2″ x 2″ to the wall at 29 1/4″ high using your drill with the 3 1/2″ long screws where the studs are. Attach the corner braces on the inside of the back of the table where the studs are located on the wall. As you can see, these corner braces may not be evenly space on your vanity table. I just wanted to add a little extra support for the bottom of the table.
Open up the front panel and fasten the corner brackets in the back to the wall using the 3 1/2″ long construction screws. Fill any screw holes with putty and touch up paint as needed. Its small profile that attaches to the wall keeps things open and airy in the closet.
Brass Stool / Mirror / Plug-In Wall Sconces Of course, the mirror and sconces do their fair share of upping the “wow” factor in this space. DIY Bathtub Tray with Book Holder – minimal cuts and easy assembly!
