|Sasha's inspecting my work ;)|
|Here's the silly knobs from before, they were just not to my taste at all!|
So these pictures were after some sanding of rough spots where the previous owners had left some paint globs, and also after giving it a thorough cleaning.
So, let's look at my traincase and what it looked like before. I loved it so much, but as I said, it just wasn't practical. I ended up usually just using the things on the top layer of it, because it was a pain opening it up because I had to transfer it to a different space and it was pretty heavy! I was also constantly worrying about it toppling over.
|So, here's my stash of makeup products all organized before.|
|I ended up adding this basket with a box inside recently, to increase the amounts of things that were easy to get to.|
|The top layer aka the layer of products that I use the most|

|And here, you can see some of the pretty things I was missing out on using because they were on lower levels|
|more stuff I avoided using because I didn't want to open up the whole traincase|
|This thing is huge and took up a ton of space all opened up|
So, let's take a look at the finished vanity now! I am so darn happy with it, although I'm still on the look-out for some more drawer organizers, so things don't slide around every time I open and close the drawers.
|Here it is all it's glory! It was painted with Krylon spray paint in "A Bright Idea" and I think it looks pretty awesome with my lime green walls. :)|
|The adorable drawer pulls that I got, they were less than $3 a piece from Home Depot. I love that they have the yellow of the vanity and the green of my walls on them. Plus, they add a really cute retro flair.|
|For now, I basically used what I already had, except for the green mirror which was a cheap $5 from Target. It will soon be replaced with a mirror on a stand, but it's perfect for right now!|
|So here's my most used makeup brushes. They're in a glass vase with black river rocks in the bottom.|
|And the Hello Kitty ceramic jar opens up and it has cotton pads inside!|
And here's how the drawers are organized for now:
|The top drawer, over top of where the chair slides in, has some of my most used stuff: MAC shadows, random lipsticks, a few random palettes, eyeliners, foundation, etc.|
|Bottom Drawer that has random glosses I don't use much, a bin of samples, false eyelashes, sample containers, and other random face stuff and make-up remover.|
|And here's one of my favorite boxes...|
|My MAC lipsticks and glosses as well as some of my favorite drugstore glosses!|
|And here's the glosses on the side: NYX megashine lipgloss in Sugar Pie and three Revlon super lustrous lipglosses in Coral Reef, Pink Pop, and Lilac Pastelle.|
