If you don’t have much space left. Use the table space to keep rest of the things. I have placed a DIY basket(Used a simple Basket which was fit for the area and wrapped with a decorative paper. You may use any spare cardboard box also rather than Basket. In this, I keep daily essentials. This Box keeps the place neatly arranged which prevents messiness and easy to wipe the surface without removing all the items.

I have kept all my Hair Styling Machines like Blow Dryer, Straightener & Curling Rod in the second drawer. Space left out is used to keep Vanity Pouches where I keep extra Make Up which I use occasionally.

Tip: Do not keep your Hair Styling Machines without tying their wire. They can get tangled with each other and obviously look messy also. I keep them neatly by tying with Velcro Strips. You may use Cable Tying Clips also or normal elastic band. By keeping in this way, They can be easily seen without fiddling with wires.
