A Pretty Vanity Desk in the Bedroom

Ok, I’ll be honest–I have no idea what to call this post and I’ve spent the last 10 minutes trying to think of a good title, but I think this is the best I’ve got. And I guess it’s as close as I can get to describing my new beauty desk/work space I just put together in my bedroom for spring. You guys, I LOOOVE this spot! I’ve been dreaming about creating a little space like this for a while now and I’m tickled pink I was finally able to do it. It’s the perfect spot to get ready in the morning or just sit with a cup of coffee and get some work done!

Isn’t it so dreamy?! Seriously, I wish I could sit at this spot all day drinking something fancy with my pinky out and wearing fuzzy slippers. It’s just the perfect little corner and even though it’s pretty simple, I love how it all came together.

I think the star of the show here is that gorgeous mirror. This is the Amelie wooden arched floor mirror from Arhaus. And I don’t know about you, but this feels more like a piece of artwork than just a mirror. I can’t get over how beautiful all the details are and I love the gold frame–it definitely has a strong vintage French vibe that I think is perfect. This is the kind of piece that you keep your entire life and then hand down to your children. It’s just THAT GOOD. You can see it here.

I love the idea of using this space to get ready or do my makeup, but I also plan to use it as a little workspace–especially in the early morning hours when I get up before the kids. That door there actually goes out to our upper deck, so I could definitely enjoy some easy mornings here with a cup of coffee.

Not too long ago this little corner was used for the baby’s crib and now it’s serving a whole new purpose. It’s crazy to think how fast time has gone, but it’s also kind of cool to see how different spaces and corners evolve in our home. Now this is a happy little vanity/work space and I loooooove it. I hope you like it too and I hope it gives you an idea or two for your own home! Now I’m off to drool over that purdy mirror and drink more coffee. xo

More mirrors from Arhaus–many are 40% off right now!:

Thank you to Arhaus for sponsoring today’s post! xo

    I have that exact desk in my basement, used to use it as a dressing table in my old bedroom. Now I’m going to have to distress it and figure out a place to put it!

    I love your furniture pieces. I also love the curtains with the small balance. I believe I saw them in your family living room as well. They would be perfect in my family room. I have looked online but can’t find them anywhere. Please let me know where I can purchase them.
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Sarah!

    This is beautiful! I’m just curious how the mirror is secured there? I have a one year old daughter and I want to create something like this but worry about her safety. Is the mirror propped there or somehow attached? Thanks so much!

      You can attach it with little hinges on the back. We used a wire!

    Sarah, your new space is absolutely beautiful! I dream some day of having something like this in my master bedroom. I finally have a space that I can use as either a sitting space or some kind of makeup / getting ready spot. Only problem is I have a window in that space so not sure the mirror would work. But you have the wheels turning in my brain! Thank you for sharing your beautiful space.

      Oh that’s awesome Lori, maybe you need a smaller pedestal mirror? I hope you can put it together as a little get ready spot!

Time really is a thief & I wish we could keep him little forever. But we always talk about how he’s going to live close to me when he grows up. And if not, I’ll just follow him where ever he goes. That seems perfectly reasonable, right?! RIGHT. 😉
