Woman Turns Unused Cupboard Into Stunning Glam Station

Woman Turns Unused Cupboard Into Stunning Glam Station

A savvy woman has transformed an unused cupboard in her hallway into a stunning glam station - all for the cost of a fiver.

Now that's our kind of Narnia.

Hannah Clark, 30, from Dundee, Scotland, came up with the thrifty idea when the ultra-bright bulbs of her Ikea mirror caused her to move it out of the bedroom.

She saw the potential in the wasted cupboard space and began thinking about how she could create something special on a low budget.

Luckily, Hannah had most of the materials for the cupboard makeover already to hand.

The Event Producer for Scotcheer National Cheerleading & Dance Championships used leftover paint to give the space a new lease of life.

She gave the shelves a coating of high-shine black gloss and used a Dulux shade called 'natural slate' for the walls.

The storage boxes and fairy lights - bought from Home Bargains - she already owned, along with a large Ikea mirror and a smaller mirror from Boots No7.

Pretty house plants from Ikea and a string of fairy lights - also from Home Bargains - complete the look.

The final space has everything needed for an epic preening session, with plenty of shelf space, practical product storage, and those two mirrors to catch all the angles.

Goodbye uneven foundation.

"I had pretty much everything lying around the house, so only really spent £5 on new paint brushes," said Hannah.

"I used the shelves that were in the cupboard originally and just black glossed them and used paint from my living room for the walls."

Sharing the crafty DIY feature on Facebook, Hannah wrote: "So after loads of early morning arguments about the brightness of my mirror I decided to up and move out of the bedroom and make myself a wee glam station in the hall.

"Can't wait to get ready tomorrow," she added.

Genius!
