Meghan took a Flarke Computer desk, that cost $24.99 at Ikea and turned it into a retro vanity for doing her makeup and hair.
She says, “I took the desk, sanded it and then decoupaged the top with pictures of 1950’s pinups and put a piece of glass on the top to protect the photographs. Then I painted the rest of the desk matte black, and attached a hook on the underside in order to have a place to hang my hair dryer.
Additionally I took a Fira mini chest, painted it black as well to match and use that to store all my miscellaneous beauty products. I’m pretty proud of the end result, hope you like it too!”
