I had to recreate the befores & my construction process since I hadn't thought to take pictures (who would have thought I'd be blogging, not me). Yeah, messing up my drawer -- that's how much I love ya! Okay this picture is approximately how messy it was before; well, it was probably a lot messier.
Seriously, I'm not a high-end makeup person. I get most things at Walmart. What can I say?
I actually got the idea for doing this to my makeup drawer because I had created something similar in my play room for some craft supplies. I start most any project with a sketch of some kind. I laid out my makeup items (man, did I ever do some tossing during this process) & put them in groups & measured. Sounds rather tedious as I write about it, but it was really simple.
The supplies I used: 1/8" foam board, hot glue gun, ruler & cutting device
Essentially what you are creating is an insert with the foam board. It doesn't need exterior sides, just the interior dividers. With my measurements at hand, I cut the board pieces & started gluing. This stuff dries very quickly, so it didn't take long at all. The end result made it possible to have a makeup drawer that looks like this photo. Totally works for me.
For makeup brushes, q-tips, cotton balls, etc., I found these simple glass containers at the DS.
Well, there you go. Now you've seen inside the drawer that lets magic happen. Hope this is of help to a few of you, anyway. Maybe sometime I will show you how I organize my clothes closet. Woopie, I bet you can't wait for that one!
Thanks for stopping by. Please come again soon.
