My New Makeup Table

So after using a bookshelf for about a year to store all of my makeup and beauty supplies, i finally outgrew it. My makeup and beauty stash no longer fits on a 5 shelf bookcase, so i have to have more storage space. After looking for makeup tables and not finding any in our local area that suited me, i moved on to something else. At first i looked at a desk to turn into a makeup table, but that idea didn't work out. Than i happened to bump into something else that i loved. After thinking it over for a night i decided to purchase it and turn it into a makeup table. This lovely piece of furniture is actually a cherry wood sofa table. However for me it's perfect to turn into a makeup table. It's long, wide enough, tall enough, i can easily buy a mirror to hang and use one of our kitchen chairs with it or buy a nice looking stool to use with it. The bottom part can either be used as storage for the stool or i can buy can baskets to place along to bottom and store various beauty items in them. The only bad thing with buying a non conventional makeup table is that with this i have to be a little more careful than normal or it will get scratched so i either have to buy some felt and cut it to size of everything i sit on it, or i came up with the idea of using placemats, which i think will work well to protect the wood and finish. As for what i plan to put makeup, nail polish and brushes in, well for the makeup I'm probably going to buy some acrylic storage containers, for nail polish as a lot of you know I'll be using an acrylic nail polish rack if i can ever find one to buy from a reputable business, and for makeup brushes I've picked out some glass containers and filler that i plan on buying when i can for all of my brushes. I'm not sure how many acrylic makeup storage containers to buy, I'll probably buy two to begin with and see how it holds everything.
