Your vanity is command center for all your morning activities (and at night when you're winding down after a long day). It's the spot where you stash your favorite jewelry, and it might also be the area where you organize your makeup, perfume, and other tiny essentials that you use to prep for your day. Whether it's a decked out table complete with a fancy chair and mirror or just a small section of your dresser top, you can make the area both pretty and functional. Because as we all know, the last thing you want when you're late getting out the door is to have to search for that one missing earring or your favorite (now MIA) eyeliner.
Because most of the things on your vanity are on the smaller side, it's helpful to have an assortment of boxes, trays, and other small containers to make things easy to find and to keep clutter at bay. Some decorative items like perfume bottles or favorite jewelry pieces can be kept out on display, while other less attractive items (hair ties, loose bobby pins, tweezers), you'll want to put away. There are so many organizing options out there, but sometimes it's nice to think outside the box and swap in some products that might have originally been meant for a different use (think pencil organizers, small serving trays, burnt out candles, and bath accessories). Because the concept of the vanity tends to skew more on the glam and feminine side, this can also be a good time to mix in vintage pieces like bud vases, decorative boxes, and small china plates and serving pieces.
Here are 14 vanity organizers and decorative items that will make getting ready in the morning feel like a breeze.
