I’m going to sound like every other person on the planet and talk about how much I love Pinterest.
The idea of opening up a web page only to find food, clothes, home decor, crafts, DIY, handsome men, cute lil’ babies, and lots of lots of pretty things…Weeeellll…
I’m not complaining.
If I could I would sew my whole families clothes, style my hair perfect, sport some hot smokey eyes, cook the most delicious dinners, have the most beautiful house, and take precious family photos. Most likely I would never sleep, not have time to enjoy that delicious dinner, and probably ignore/never see my family…
But, there are FAR more important things in life that I don’t want to miss. So for now I’ll do what I can, and settle for sweat pants, a messy ponytail, and beans and rice tonight for dinner.
My makeup was super unorganized just thrown into a drawer, and my brushes were getting extremely dirty all mixed with everything. So when I saw the idea I knew I had to try it.
It was SUPER simple, and it cost me only a couple of dollars!
I started with a frame I had already. I had primed the frame white, then spray painted it yellow. Then I took some sand paper and rubbed a few spots here and there to give it some character.
I then rolled some rosette flowers made from burlap and doilies. Yes, doilies. I have about 692 of them in my garage from my grandpas house. I am determined to use them!
I then hot glued some burlap onto the original bored for the frame.
Next, I took my magnetic sheet (which I got at Lowes for $1.50!!) and hot glued some burlap over that.
I then glued the two boards together.
The magnet board was smaller than the frame backing, but it didn’t bother me. I like the depth it gave to the frame.
Now comes the time to hot glue some magnets on the back on your makeup.
For smaller ones you only need one magnet, but for larger pieces you will need more.
Then you just stick it on!
P.S. Bobbi Brown liquid eyeliner is A-MA-ZING!
For my brushes I just used two candle holders that I had saved from when the hubby and I got married!
SEE! This teaches you to save and hoard EvErYtHiNg! :-)
I cut out vinyl letters with my Cricut machine, one for my eye brushes and one for my face brushes. (I am also doing the same thing for my kitchen jars too!)
You could easily buy letter stickers and do the same thing.
Next, I filled each holder with a mixture of dry beans. (You KNOW I have tons of those sitting in my house!)
It really helps hold the brushes up right!
I seriously LOOVE this whole idea!
I love having such organization in my makeup, let alone SUCH easy cleanup!
Ok guys…you know what you gotta do now…
Have a great day!
