Look for Less: A Pretty Vanity

Hello everyone! I can't believe it's already March and I'm here again to tell you how to get the look for less.

Nothing really says "girly" like a vanity. I always had one as a little girl but now I find that it can actually serve a practical function for me.

A vanity for your bedroom or even your closet, if it's big enough, is perfect for applying makeup and perfume.

It can also be the stage for sentimental photos or jewelry that you want to display.

This vanity serves as a beautiful accent to this guest room designed by David Brian Sanders Interior Design Studio. The mirrored surface, large mirror, and velvet tufted seat are all glamorous touches. This vanity is chic and anything but girly.

If a mirrored vanity is what you're looking for, look no further than Pier 1 imports. Their "Hayworth" collection features a variety of mirrored pieces. Their Vanity and Mirror are sold separately. However, the total is a little over $500 which is well below other options out there. Pier 1 also offers a Hayworth Vanity Bench, which is also mirrored and perfect companion to the vanity and mirror. If you want something completely different and rustic, Pottery Barn's Chloe Vanity is a great option and is sure to make a statement in any room it's in. It has a built-in mirror, beautiful detailing, and hooks on each side for your jewelry.

Do you have a desk or table in your home that is underused? Try using that as a vanity. All you have to add is a pretty mirror and a comfortable seat. Put a lamp, some trays to hold candles, flowers, or trinkets and you'll have a pretty space to get ready.
