hey friends. so the 2nd bedroom of the new place is going to be my vanity room. basically, I'd like a *large* vanity table, a large mirror with a vintage frame, a small chair for the vanity table, a side table and a smallish loveseat of sorts.

I already know that I want a malm vanity table. and I'm getting this flip out bin to hold mascaras, liners and the like.

for brush storage, I'm thinking vases with pretty coloured beads/marbles. everything else though, I'm at a loss for. especially when it comes to cute chairs. do you guys have any recommendations? I looked at chairs from UO, but they're overpriced IMO. what do you guys think? what other containers do you think I'd need to organize?

EDIT: I'm also getting this acrylic case, maybe 2 of them.

chairs are so much fun! you can always look at thrift stores/garage sales for one, and if you don't happen to like the fabric you can always reupholster it for pretty cheap. All it takes is fabric you like, a staple gun (which i'm sure you could borrow from someone), some scissors and needle nose pliers (for pulling out the old staples). I usually llike stuff from Pier One Imports too, but I'll start scoping out some places online so I can give you links. :]

dude. you rock. I didn't even think of Pier One. I'm hoping to find a chair for less than $100 and a small sofa for less than $200. I found a very simple couch (it turns into a bed, great for when his parents visit): here it is. And I like this chair.

I'm pretty sure Joe wouldn't mind picking up the vanity table for me at the IKEA in Houston or Dallas. I would prefer to order a loveseat and chair online, though, if I can't find cute ones locally.

I also found a cute pencil holder that could work for brushes: right here. I think I like the idea of simple glass vases with beads better, though.
