I am currently drooling over this desk from IKEA. It has my mind rolling with so many ideas.

The description says "A long table top makes it easy to create a workspace for two", but I thought, what about a space for ONE to do both work and beauty? It would cut down the need for two pieces of furniture in a smaller, studio style space. The high gloss white and slim leg design would make it visually light and airy.
Let me show you what I mean with a quick sketch (maybe this makes up for the lack of doodle yesterday):
A venetian mirror over one side, with a jar of makeup brushes and a tray of lipsticks.
A fabric covered inspiration board over the other side, with laptop and office supplies!
You could even mix up the seating for extra fun.
I've always wanted an extra long desk
like this:
 Or this:
 Or this:
Is there room for this in my student rental come October? Well, No...
Is that going to stop me? Let's just say I love a good design challenge so we will see!

What a good idea! Every girl deserves a vanity and a workspace. I hope you're able to make room for it at the new place!

I think that's a wonderful idea!! Definitely a space saver if you were planning on having two different areas for office-ing and beautifying ;) I say go for it! Only bummer about IKEA is that you have to put it together yourself - yuck!

I love the idea of a long desk like this. It seems to make a room feel bigger and less cluttered. Funny how that is! Love your sketch!
