Vanity/Dressing Table

2 Ekby Jarpen wall shelves w/ brackets, 3 Branas baskets, and 1 Ingolf stool

Description: We mounted the 2 Ekby Jarpen wall shelves just far enough apart so that the 3 Branas baskets could move in an out freely and that was all. Mounted a mirror over them and made a cushion for the Ingolf stool… very simple and quite useful for a house full of young girls!

    I happen to have 2 of those shelves waiting for a spot as well as a mirror from Ikea. This is a perfect idea for both! To keep the cost low, I’m going to use Dollar Store plastic baskets.

    I love this idea! I like how you can customize the height and width of the station (e.g. for stool heights), all of which, you cannot do with stock dressing tables.
