DIY Magnetic Makeup Organizer

Saturday, January 11, 2014

A friend shared a Makeup Organizer idea with me. Danielle from Polish.Glitter.Rock & Roll has this nifty magnetic, over-the-door organizer for her makeup. When I saw it I knew I had to have one. 

I don't have a lot of makeup, nor do I use a lot of it. But what I do have is a jumbled mess and dumped into a basket in my bathroom. I hate searching through it to get the things I use on a regular basis.

So I hopped into my car and headed to Hobby Lobby. I know I could have found a few things cheaper but when I get an idea in my head I am all for doing it NOW.

I found the magnetic board for $19 and it was on sale for 30 percent off. Now you don't have to use a premade, precut board. You can use whatever you have on hand. A cookie sheet would work just as well.

The metal board I found is 12" x 24" and the distressed wooden frame I found for $14 was perfect for it. I knew I wanted a western look - after all, I do live in Wyoming. But I know there are so many design ideas out there. You could have it match the theme in your bathroom or bedroom in no time. I saw some adorable mirror tiles, glass tiles and even buttons that would make it look oh-so-cute!

So after I secured the metal board in the frame I set to decorating it. The decorations were all from the clearance aisle. A little hot glue and I was set. The things that cost me were the cowboy boot hooks on the bottom. They are really drawer pulls and were $6 each. But I just had to have them to hang necklaces and other jewelry on.

Then I bought some of the square magnets with the sticky backs and applied them to my makeup. I wasn't shy with this. I don't want to come home and find my makeup in pieces on the floor. For the small things two magnet pieces worked well. I only put part of my makeup on it for now.
