Make Space for Makeup: DIY This Home Beauty Bar

published Jun 19, 2017

Barring maybe a home spa, vanities are the ultimate beauty lover’s luxury. Thanks to Command’s Damage-Free Hanging Solutions, even those of us with tiny apartments can make space for one. Using just a desk, stool, and a few damage-free, wall-mounted designs, we created a modern beauty bar with an Instagrammable rainbow of colors. Installed in an afternoon, this little niche will make you happy every morning. Here’s how it all came together…

Salon-Style Nail & Makeup Station

To organize the million little pieces of a beauty regimen, we used the Command™ Quartz Picture Ledge. Each ledge holds up to five pounds; the narrow lip keeps nail polish bottles in line; and the damage-free removal means you can easily move and add ledges as your collection grows.

Artsy Accessory Organization

The Command™ Clear Jewelry Racks hold up to one pound each and they disappear into the wall, allowing your artsy necklaces become actual wall art. The Command™ Quartz Jewelry and Scarf Racks have four crystal knobs and hold up to two pounds each — we grouped a couple together to create storage for scarves.

Makeup Brush Cups

To hold makeup brushes, we repurposed Command™ Bath Satin Nickel Accessory Organizers. They hold up to five pounds to keep brushes easily at hand without taking up table space.

Modern Mirror

The simple, circular mirror makes this vanity feel modern. To hang it, we used four Medium Picture Hanging Strips. We checked the weight restrictions on the set against the mirror and used enough of them to hold it up. (You can combine Large Picture Hanging Strips to meet an object’s weight restrictions up to 16 pounds.)

Each piece of the vanity quickly and painlessly, and the nail polish organization alone makes it worth it. So cute, so cool, so easy.
