Turning and Ottoman Storage Seat into a Vanity Dresser (Part 1)

Bit by bit, it’s all coming together!

Every so often I start a project that seems to take forever because I keep overthinking every tiny ridiculous detail – so getting started on this was taking forever! Once I started though it started to come together; first, a lock to stop my son getting in, then the raised tray, then opening up the lid. I’m still not sure how I want to rig up the mirror and lighting yet. I’ve been uploading less of the capsule makeup challenges than I would have liked lately, and most of that is down to having a limited amount of time once my son is napping to set up the lighting, camera etc.

If I can figure out a way to have an illuminated mirror ready to go inside the lid and a camera grip on the seat too so that any setup takes less than a minute I should be able to film SO much more. Especially with Halloween coming up in a few months, I really, really want to show just how much you can do with a limited makeup collection.

And speaking of a limited makeup collection, I found the most beautiful lipstick organizer on eBay the other day! Honestly, every time I open that ottoman the thing just makes me smile. Now I just have to resist the urge to buy every glass and brass organizer I can find, which won’t be easy. I’m a complete sucker for it.

    I love the Ottoman, where did you get it from? The project is awesome, it looks great. I guess that now, that you have covered the whole seat there will be no place for the lights to go, so sad; but, anyway, you did a great job optimizing the space
