Here are some other reasons you’ll love this vanity:

  • It’s versatile
    • Could be a desk or vanity
  • Large, wide drawer for storage
    • Felt-lined so our stuff doesn’t slip around
    • Smooth running with pull-out stop

  •  Durable glass top
    • Easy to wipe down and clean

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

  • Not very sturdy and the drawer broke after a couple of years.

“I bought this vanity about 2 years ago and I still love how it looks to this day! It’s very simple and classic and looks exactly how it’s pictured. The glass on top really makes the piece. It’s also lightweight and easy to move if you like to redecorate or just recently moved like me.

The only thing I had an issue with is the drawer – a lot of stuff got pushed to the back and I had to take everything out to get to it – bottom line, just keep your stuff minimal in the drawer and it will be more functional. It’s great for small spaces since it’s long and slim – you’ll love this piece!”

The glass top makes cleaning super easy and prevents staining of the white surface underneath. It’s a nice mid-sized vanity, which fits my space perfectly. The drawer bottom is not the sturdiest, so I will need to be careful with how much I try to place inside, but overall I’m very happy with my purchase!”

It took just about 30 minutes to build and I’ve already recommended it to a few of my roommates and they went out and got one too! I’m already looking forward to bringing it with me to my next apartment.”

    If you are a makeup junkie, then the Alex drawers with your choice of table top is the way to go. So much storage.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful suggestion, Jen D! I do love my makeup! 💄

    I have 2 of the Brimnes one for me and the other floats among the kids (boys and girls) and we love them! They are so multifunctional. If you buy a vertical laptop holder it will fit on the back so you can open and close the mirror without any trouble while storing the laptop and it is perfect for a desk

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How neat! Glad to hear how useful they have been. Thanks for sharing with us!
