DIY vanity mirror – One of the most common ways to decorate a bedroom dresser is to dress it with a cloth skirt. You can choose a skirt that extends from the edge of the vanity top on the floor or a shorter version that leaves the legs of the vanity exposed. Pre-made skirts are available, but you can make your own fabric that catches attention. For an attractive look, try a damask, toile or jacquard fabric for your skirt. A floral skirt pattern can add a sweet, feminine touch, while a linen skirt can give your vanity a more casual look. A skirt is an ideal choice if your vanity is showing signs of wear, or if you want to use an old table or desk as a budget dressing table.
While it is possible to store makeup and skin care items that you regularly use on your dresser, you can add a classic, elegant look to your room by displaying a collection of vintage cosmetics. Decorative perfume jars are ideal display elements for your DIY vanity mirror. Carved glass bottles are an attractive option, as they capture light and draw attention to the dressing table. A brush and mirror set with silver handles or a collection of engraved silver compacts can give your vanity a vintage look as well. Search around in antique stores and tag sales to find the pieces that you like.
If you want to add a touch of color to your bedroom DIY vanity mirror, add a full glass of your favorite flowers. Choose a simple vase that matches the rest of the room decor, so the flowers are the focal point. If your bedroom lacks warmth, opt for red, orange or yellow flowers. Fresh flowers are a good choice because they also provide a fragrance, but you may not want the hassle or cost of replacing them regularly. Instead, you can use high quality silk flowers that do not require maintenance.
