In Norway, and perhaps Scandinavia in general, we don't have vanity tables. That's always been a funny American phenomenon for us.
I guess we are not supposed to care so much for makeup that we go out and purchase a piece of furniture to hold something that is superficial like makeup..
Funny thing is, as much as we could all use a vanity table and it being an ancient way of thinking, I think we still feel embarrassed to admit that all our makeup doesn't fit into one little makeup bag.
In my family they know my makeup doesn't fit into a makeup bag, because they see it floating around everywhere. And it's an annoying thing to everyone, including myself.
So, having read MacGal74's blog on how she stores her makeup, I have decided to get the same one (in the picture). It's IKEA's Malm dresser. Nice, neutral and doesn't take up a lot of space.
