Makeup Storage {Part 2}...

  Welcome back to Part {2} of my makeup storage series. You can go see Part {one} of my makeup storage series HERE. Okay, so while hanging out with a few girlfriends this weekend we came across this awesome blog (can't remember the name, so upset!) With an amazing makeup storage idea. Here is my version of the magnetic board makeup storage....





A magnetic makeup board. love.  As you have seen in my previous post Here, you saw my new Closet makeover into my new "Makeup Vanity Closet". This magnetic board makeup storage is perfect for my new vanity closet. I put most of my favorite makeup items on the two boards I made.

{What You Will Need....}



Fabric ( I used a shower curtain I got on clearance @ Target for $5.00!!), Magnets (Lowes $2.99), Sheets of metal (Lowes $4.00 per), & a hot glue gun.



I simply attached a magnet with hot glue to the back of my most used makeup products. To make the metal boards I cut the fabric (Shower Curtain) a little larger than the metal sheet. After it was cut I folded the sides over & hot glued the fabric to the sheet. 


Maybe I will add A frame to the boards? We shall see....



This is so easy for me to be getting ready at my vanity & reach over to grab the makeup product I need. I love this!! My vanity closet is coming together. Remember to go check out the closet makeover HERE. Also go to Christine's blog & check out her version of the Magnetic Makeup board here


I hope you liked {Part 2} of my makeup storage series. How do you store your makeup?? If you try this idea, go link up your pictures/post on Liz Marie Blog Facebook. I would love to see them! Hope you all are having a great week. ummmm pretty sure I am so excited that tomorrow is FRIDAY!! I have never wanted time to fly by so fast... My hubby will be home soon. I. Can. Not. Wait. I'm so impatient. anyways bon voyage... & look forward to seeing more blog posts this weekend!!

    1. Hmm, I'm looking at this years later, and she never replied to comfirm or not to, regarding her idea.

      She writes "while hanging out with a few girlfriends this weekend we came across this awesome blog (can't remember the name, so upset!) ..There is a thing called *browser history*.

  31. okay this is amazing! all of my makeup is crammed in a ghetto caboodles case that I have to haul out each morning from under the cabinet. Now if only I can find somewhere conspicuous to put the boards up so that my hubby doesn' feel like he's walked into cinderella's bathroom (since my jewelery is all currently hanging on the wall as well). LOVE it! Great job :)

  44. ONE BIG PROBLEM with this idea. Makeup contains a metal called Titanium Dioxide, so when I put the magnets under the makeup, the composition of the makeup actually changed. It went from a powdery substance to something much harsher because the magnet cause the titanium dioxide to separate from the other ingredients.

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's interesting and true! Most makeups do contain titanium dioxide. A lot of makeups contain mecca too. I'm not sure how or if this would effect the composition though.

  49. It would be better if you schedule a day, maybe during the weekends - to sort out your things and see if there are already items that you can donate or dispose to give more room to the things that you can still make use of.

  50. Another GREAT idea. I will be trying this one for sure!

  64. Any suggestions on how to hang the finished board (besides a frame)? I got everything and then ran into that dilemma. Thank you.

    1. I think it would be much much safer to have a frame or boarder around the metal. Sheet metal is extremely sharp! Maybe even find some foam corners and edging or something similar at a craft shop to glue on before that fabrics put on
