While the bathroom renovation solved a lot of problems, it did present a small hiccup. No worries I have a solution : Two-Tier Drawer Storage
If you have been following along for a little while you are aware of our major bathroom renovation. During this makeover we gutted the original cabinets and nixed the weird corner layout. I hated the layout, it felt weird and congested. HOWEVER, it did have one benefit; the original layout included a seated vanity area.
Shortly after completing the bathroom I realized how much I enjoy sitting and putting on my makeup. This was a conundrum. I had just taken out my seated vanity, but I had an idea! Lets go ahead and needlessly. complicate matters in the effort of being lazy whilst applying makeup. 🙂
There are quite a few steps to this vanity conversion process, but the first one I’m tackling is creating a work space and adding accessible storage for may makeup. In the past I have used double tier storage in my workshop organization. I decided to take a page out of that playbook and add additional/functional storage to my existing drawer. Creating two tier drawer storage is just what this space needed.
I have full build plans available here. (The drafted version is intended for a 36″ frameless base cabinet.)
Just look at all that beautifully organized storage! There are still plans to trick out this cabinet in order to create a fully functional vanity, but this is a great start!
I have plans on using the top tier as a “workspace” for when I am doing my hair. A heat resistant pad that will remain in this top area for when I am working with hot tools. Also… I am going let you in on a secret… I will also store all the accoutrement to apply my lashes. Yes, I even DIY my own lashes. 🙂
I added some plastic organizer bins to bottom drawer, they worked great to organize all of my makeup. So far I am loving this system. First I apply my makeup and then pull out the top drawer to work on my hair.
I know I am missing a few key components like, a mirror and lighting, but don’t you worry I have that covered. You can see how I am incorporating drawer slides and turntables to make the most ingenious tuck away mirror on my Instagram stories.
