Having a less than large bedroom in the first place and adding a baby into the mix means very little space I can tell you! I have had to think of pretty creative ways round storing everything I need to whilst keeping things out of toddler reach all whilst leaving enough space to get myself and Eloise sorted and it’s not an easy job!
I originally had a desk, various chests of drawers, a corner television cabinet and a double bed but all of that minus one chest of drawers and the double bed had to go to fit a cot in so I have had to think of many ways round storing my copious amounts of make up and give myself room to apply it without little grabby hands running off with my expensive bits and fingers being poked into lipsticks (and not the cheap ones might I add!)
So the photograph above is my new dressing table…Or rather dressing shelf! It’s just a cheapy Ikea Floating Shelf that cost about £9. I have it positioned about rib height which keeps it low enough to make reaching for things easy when applying make up whilst making it high enough to keep little hands from getting into things they shouldn’t. It works out about just above Eloise’s head height so she isn’t going to bump herself on them anytime soon. I have a nail polish display thing above it which is mirrored which is convenient to say the least!
I keep mainly my big everyday products and new things (although I had a bit of a sorting out sesh before I took this photo so it looks a little bare!) I haven’t found space for yet on here along with a jewellery stand, a little tiny set of wooden drawers and a metal floral carrier with things I don’t want to lose (L’oreal Telescopic Waterproof for example, a photo strip of me and Eloise, etc) or just want to be easily accessible.
I have a collection of ideas for posts showing you guys how I store things and just general little snippets of my space. Is this something you’d be interested in seeing?
So this is my little make up applying space for minimal space! What do you think?
