Dressing table area and make up storage UPDATE

I am now the proud owner of the Ikea Alex 9 Drawers!

I know every girl and her dog owns this so it's far from a unique set up, but I loved the look of it in so many Youtube videos and it really is the ideal size.

It costs £85 from Ikea but I managed to pick up a second hand one from eBay for £35. It was in excellent condition just needed a bit of Cif to get it shiny white again.

I've put it next to my dressing table and it is storing my beauty products such as toner, moisturiser, nail varnish remover, fake tan etc, a wide range of hair products and my hair tools. I'm also a bit OCD, so I've got a 'stock' drawer of some spare products for when others run out. 

I know the blue walls don't look great, we only moved a month ago so have not got to decorating this room yet. The plan is duck egg blue, white and a bit of silver/grey.


  1. What are you going to store in the big white drawers? x

    1. In the drawers I have:
      - Every day "go-to" products like moisturiser and deoderant
      - Hair products
      - Body/tanning products
      - Hair dryer, straightners, curling iron
      - Stock of excess products I haven't yet opened eg. toothpaste etc.

      It's suprising how quick they fill up! x
