I already had the fabric bins on hand so I just added those at the bottom and filled with shoes and purses.
I already had the TV stand on hand, as well, so I put that right next to the bookcase and attached the cheapy mirror on the wall using mirror mount tape.
I then screwed in the wall hooks for the storage and added the extra bins I had laying around.
The two silver galvanized buckets on the side of the mirror were purchased long ago from my wedding that I’ve used for pantry storage. I believe they were probably dollar store finds, because that’s how I roll.
A couple of notes, though:
If I had unlimited time ::giggles::- I would probably paint the mirror silver, or add some cutesy contact paper to the insides of the bookcase and TV stand. I might also add cute contact paper to make the bins more matchy. And I might have even add lettering to the bins.
But she can’t read yet and ain’t nobody got time for all that.
So this is how it turned out.
Let me tell you though, that I didn’t even have the last screw drilled in before she was primping away. She LOVES this thing. I built it to resemble a cool vanity that my sister has at her house. So Sassy was pretty darn proud to have a dress up area just like her bestie, Aunt J.
Oh and I also added a cheapy Wal-Mart door mirror right next to the vanity on the wall that you can’t see in the picture. It was about $8 and I mounted it with mounting tape.
If I didn’t have the wall space, the mirror would have gone on the side of the bookcase.
I hope you like it! It was a fairly cheap project and easy re-purpose using crap I already had laying around!
See you next time!
