DIY Vanity!

I want to show you my latest project:

A Beauty Vanity you can build yourself!

For a while, I have been searching for the "perfect" vanity for all of my makeup and hair supplies! 
I was having trouble finding the perfect one, because the average beauty vanity can range anywhere from $200 - $1,500+ !
The "cheaper" ones came with only 1 drawer, so more storage would have to be budgeted in as well. 

I started to brainstorm my way through this. I was able to build my own vanity for only $40. The vanity also gives me the opportunity to add as many storage containers as needed!

Here's a breakdown of what I gathered to create this:

Once I had all the candy sticks and laffy taffy ropes assembled, I wrapped packing tape around them to secure and hold the bouquet together. 

Then, I wrapped one sheet of colorful tissue paper around the bouquet to hide the tape...

And securing with a curled ribbon! It was a little heavy, because I us…
