Vanities are one of those classic pieces of furniture that every girl should own. Whether it be a desk used/decorated as a vanity (see above) or a vintage family heirloom. Realistically, they can be more functional than their reputation. I’ve had one in my room since I was 9 – I started with a beautiful family antique that my great grandmother used to use. It was a dark stained wood with intricate carvings but simple in its overall design, a true classic vanity. As i reached my teenage years I wanted something that would be more versatile and could hold more storage, so I got a oversize, bulky desk. I always used some part of it as my vanity; this past fall I took the top part of the desk off and did a complete transformation into a true vanity. Just make sure to keep yours functional for whatever use fits your needs best and that it is attractive to look at.
