Ikea Myken Mirror $19.95 AUD
Ikea Rationell Wooden Cutlery Tray $14.95 AUD
I bought the Malm dressing table by Ikea yesterday, words cannot describe how much I love it! I used to store my makeup in the top drawer of my tallboy but have always wanted a cute vanity. I was originally looking at the Ikea Hemnes vanity but after testing it instore I realised the drawer is not deep enough for any makeup to stand upright and in general the desk is quite limited in space.
The Malm has a width of 120 cm and depth of 41 cm. As you can see in the pictures, I have placed in some wooden dividers (also from Ikea) and my powders, lipsticks and a few eye products are able to stand upright. Everything else needs to be laying down but the drawer is quite long and I was able to make room for all my makeup! I'm pleased with the set up of everything apart from the lipglosses and eye primers, which I can't seem to get to sit nicely.
I love that since the table is quite long, I can use it as a makeup desk and also a regular work desk with my laptop. One major con about the desk though (an issue I have found with most Ikea furniture) is that the drawer doesn't open up all the way. As you can see in the pictures, there is some drawer space which I can't see properly and have to awkwardly reach for.
- Glass top, easy to clean
- Long drawer space
- Reasonable price
- Decent drawer depth
- Glass top slides a bit
- Can't reach back of drawer
I'll be posting a full makeup collection on my youtube channel soon hopefully, but I thought I would give you all a look first! Let me know how you store your makeup!
