Rustic Hairpin Makeup Vanity at Pneumatic Addict

This rustic makeup vanity converts into a regular desk when you need it – chic and functional!

Elisha at Pneumatic Addict was trying to come up with something with modern, clean lines – and boy did she knock it out of the park!

Elisha walks you through the process step by step, sharing a ton of pictures and diagrams that make following this plan a breeze.

She also makes use of a Kreig Jig, which has been one of the best purchases I’ve made for home DIY in the last few years. There’s a reason every DIY plan revolves around a Kreig Jig for the last couple of years – they are so versatile, and easily one of the most distinctive drill guides out there.

One of the other things that’s super fun about this project is that there is such a huge variety of hairpin legs out there – you can really make this your own, and get the exact style to fit your home.

While you’re there, check out some of Elisha’s vast array of furniture building plans, as well as her huge catalog of home improvement tutorials.
