For my room, I made a chic modern baroque vanity and makeup table.
IKEA items used
- SVALNÄS Desktop (The EKBY ALEX wall shelf is an alternative)
- 2 LALLE Legs
- UNG DRILL mirror
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.

#1 GRUNDTAL rails to the rescue
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
If you do not have space for a traditional vanity this is just right for you. Mount the shallow BESTÅ BURS to the wall below a mirror. The depth is perfect for makeup storage and is narrow enough to fit into a small bedroom. Get the details.
#3 Modern makeup table with lots of storage
Need a makeup table that’s shallow yet provides storage? You’re looking at it. This uses 2 EKBY ALEX drawers combined with metal legs. Love how very modern and classy this is. See the makeup table tutorial.
#4 Beauty bar for less
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.
