Getting an Insta-worthy vanity table doesn’t have to be as difficult as it appears to be. All you need are a few essential decorations, and everything else can be freestyled to showcase your personality – it’s your vanity table, after all! We’ve listed down five ideas of decorating your vanity that are not only simple to set up, but also won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Read on to find out more!
1. Fairy lights
If you love whimsical and ethereal interior decor, jazz up your vanity table with fairy lights. Fairy lights not only add that touch of daintiness, they also go great with pastel coloured walls and tables.
Forget about getting professional LED mirrors like those used for backstage dressing tables. For non-professional purposes, fairy lights can do just as well, adding great lighting to your photographs at lower costs.
Moreover, you can use those fairy lights for Christmas decorations! It’s a win-win situation all around.

2. LED magnifying mirror
While professional LED mirrors are too extra for the average beauty junkie, LED magnifying mirrors would be useful for zooming into problematic areas.
Magnifying mirrors are especially useful when it comes to tweezing stray brow hairs, or making sure you get that winged eyeliner just right. An LED magnifying mirror would pair up nicely with a minimalist vanity table too!

3. Vanity trays
Face it: when you’re busy getting ready in the morning, your accessories are probably in a huge mess and you might even randomly lose some.
Getting a delicate and intricate tray to hold your accessories is a great way to organise your life, and to stop small earrings from going missing too. In addition, vanity trays are also great for organising perfumes, accessories, and makeup.
If you’re on a budget, Daiso carries plastic trays of many sizes and colours. However, if you’re really into the Instagram value of your vanity table, you can consider investing in a better-looking marble or wooden tray from furniture stores.

4. Mirror decals
If you are someone who needs a pep talk or motivating reminder every morning to get your day started, then you should absolutely consider getting some decals for your vanity mirror.
Starting the morning with inspirational quotes are a great and healthy way to get into a positive mindset to meet the challenges of the day.
Of course, there’s also the additional bonus that mirror decals can look very pretty and make you happy just by looking at them.

5. Brush holders
Whether you’re a neat freak or a makeup junkie who owns way too many brushes for one person, this is definitely something you should look into getting.
An ornamental makeup brush holder is a gorgeous, space-efficient, and hygienic way of keeping your makeup debris away from your other accessories on your table.
Furthermore, this would minimise bacteria buildup from the surface of your vanity table onto your brush. This could lead to breakouts and skin irritation if makeup debris disperses all over your room when you get ready in the morning.
