    Is there any way to get information about where some of the vanities/desks are sold?

    I agree with Kristen,

    What use is this post if you can’t tell us where to get the tables, tops, attachments, and light up mirrors? Sources? Links? Step up your journalism game.

    Ikea won’t give you all these pieces, and frankly Ikeas drawer attachments look tacky and cheap and the website doesn’t clarify if the table topper is still high gloss. So irritating.
