What do you get the kid who has everything for Christmas? A Kmart vanity table, of course!
And how can you take the already adorable popular item and make it even better? With these crazy cool hacks, that’s how!
Check out how mums are remaking the Kmart vanity table into a little piece of pure perfection for their little princesses (and princes).
Meet the Kmart Vanity Table. We, like many, are in love with it. It’s part of the new(ish) wooden toy collection Kmart introduced earlier this year. There’s also a BBQ set, a cute dollhouse and an amazing market stall if you are still searching for Christmas gift ideas.
Anyhow… back to the vanity table. This little beauty retails for $39 and comes with the table, seat, mirror, pretend brush, nail polish, lipstick and more. On its own, it’s cute.
But add a little bling, a few fake flowers, some glittery contact paper and, well, you’ve just made your little girl’s dress-up dreams come true! Don’t believe us? Check out all these brilliant Kmart vanity table hacks for little girls and boys too!
Flowers and frills
Check out the LED lights and fake flowers combination that brightens up the vanity mirror.
Add a bit of plush to the tush with a piece of faux fur. Kmart sells a faux fur rug which comes in blush pink or grey, or you can pick up your own piece at a craft store.
All that glitters
Another popular option to glam up the vanity table is with a bit of glitter contact paper. You’ll find this in the craft/stationary section and, for around $3 a roll, it’s a bargain!
It’s also deceptively easy to use, especially when doing it on a hard surface like a table top or bench seat. Much easier than attempting to contact school books!
If you’re looking for something a little brighter than pastel pink, how about a deep purple? A roll of purple glitter contact paper and some velvet fabric should do the trick!
Doctor dress up
But perhaps our favourite in the Kmart vanity table hacks stakes so far is this clever doctor’s dress up area. Some kids aren’t super keen on makeup but this pretend play zone is ideal for little ones who love to play doctor. The doctor’s kit is also from Kmart ($12).
Little Barber’s Shop
Another out-of-the-flower-box idea? Transform the table into a teeny barber shop for your budding stylist, complete with striped lights and a moustache chair. How dapper is this??
Another option for little ones who aren’t too keen on makeup? Or pink? A transformer table! How amazing is this funky set-up? All you need is a bit of paint and stickers or wall decals and you’re good to go! I can see my son asking for a superhero one…
The circle of boobs
But wait… we’ve saved the breast for last! What do you get when you combine cute little light-up lanterns with the vanity mirror and then switch the lights on…
The breast hack we’ve seen in a while, that’s what!
