Magnetic Makeup Board...

As many of you know I blogged for Birchbox
last week. I had so much fun working
with them, & I wanted to share 
with you some of the things I blogged about
just in case you missed it...

I blogged for them a total of {5} Days.
Each day I wrote about something different
from my magnetic makeup board to my
favorite cosmetic products.

Here is my new magnetic board...


As many of you may know I made a makeup board
 a while back which you can see {here}.
It wasn't exactly what I wanted so I made 
this one a little more lovely
& a little more me...


Items Used:

{2} Magnetic sheets from Lowes
{1} Antique gold picture frame from an antique store

I painted the metal sheets a pretty robins egg blue &
used super glue to attach the metal sheets to 
the back of the frame. 
I hot glued magnets to the back of my favorite makeup
products to make the products stick to the magnet board.


I hung my magnetic makeup board in my vanity closet.
It makes getting ready in the morning so easy
because my makeup is conveniently within reach &
visible.


Stay tuned for my other blog posts
from Birchbox.. I will be sharing them with you soon!!

  1. That's a pretty nifty idea! Alas I have a 3 year old, so I have to hide all my makeup. But when he gets older and doesn't think makeup is paint, I'm totally doing this!

  3. Hi,this is one of the prettiest magnetic boards I've seen. Did you use those heavy duty little magnets or just plain ones (like the ones I bought in a huge roll from Michaels Crafts)? I'd love to try this but don't which magnets to use.

  4. I used regular magnets from lowes... they are very magnetic and seem heavy duty so Idk if they come in different packages. I think the ones I bought came in a pack of 4. I hope this helps!!
