In my current living situation, I have a nice vanity area outside the bathroom. It's perfect since Rob hogs the bathroom for an hour and a half every morning. I can sit and do my makeup and hair comfortably. That's one of the things I'm going to miss when we move.
I've been coveting this vanity from West Elm for a little while now. I keep thinking about how I need a dresser and some night stands more than I need a "luxury" like a vanity, but it would be so useful. Well, it just went on sale. I am really tempted.
