DIY Makeup Storage : Case Study


Just a quick project that shows how I used what I had to fill my own need for a small DIY makeup storage situation. Cost: nothing.This didn’t start out as a post, it started out as a personal need.  I hadn’t planned on doing a DIY makeup storage post but then I thought, why not since I’m doing the project for myself anyway. I’d been redoing my master bathroom and I was at the place where I was re-organizing my makeup. I just needed some little thing to hold my longer makeup items… mascara, eyeliner, brushes, etc. I knew I could buy something but I wanted to get it finished, so I started walking through the house  trying to find something that would work.  There was nothing in the kitchen so I went out into the garage where I keep all my upcycle containers. Nothing there either. Everything was too tall.  Then I went into my herb closet (from my herb closet makeover) … and  spotted two empty salve containers I’d saved.  Hmmm…. if I took the lid off one it looked about right. Of course I couldn’t just stick plain old white salve jar bottom in my nice bathroom. That would be crazy.  So I had to fancy it up just a tiny bit.  I ended up using both of the containers by the way. Took like 10 minutes and cost me nothing.

I had my makeup crammed into this silver box and I was moving it over to a small open door chest. However, to make the most of the room I needed to stand my longer items up in something.
