How to make a modern baroque vanity

Install the two legs on the front corners of the SVALNÄS desktop. Do not fix the 2 metal brackets that come with it to the desktop.

Then, use the steel corner braces to attach the desktop to the wall.

Voilà! A modern baroque vanity that looks awesome with the UNG DRILL mirror. I got a chair from the thrift shop and painted and reupholstered it to match.

Squeeze a beauty bar into a tiny room with vertical storage. This idea uses the GRUNDTAL rail as the solution. Just hang all your beauty tools off it. Add a drop leaf table below should you need more “workspace”. See more.

#2 BESTÅ BURS as a slim makeup table

This is not a ‘hack’ as such, more of a change of item description! I have created a beauty bar within my bedroom using a selection of IKEA products. See the tutorial for the beauty bar.
