Happy Hump Day to you!!!
I hope that you have had a good first half of the week. Mine has been, once again, busy!. I am going on a little mini vacation with my Sister and Niece next Friday so I have tried to get everything I need, ahead of time. We are renting a house down in Orange Beach, Alabama! I have not been to the beach in about 7 years. This is so sad because I only live 45 minutes from there. I really need to make time for the fun things in life. With the big 40 lurking in the shadows, I feel this is a very important part of being happy.
So keep posted because I will make sure to share some photos from my vacation.
Now on to the crafting. I guess you could call this a craft but it is also an up cycle project of sorts. My bathroom is small and I have no cabinets, counter top or drawers. I have a pedestal sink a shower and a toilet. That is all.
So I have a ton of make up bags stuffed to the hilt with all of my make up stuff. I decided to change that. I figured I could up cycle an old picture frame, some spray paint, and magnets I had lying around.
Here is what you need
DIY Make-Up Station
One old picture frame.
Silicon glue, or strong adhesive of choice.
1 metal pencil organizer.
1 piece of sheet metal cut to size of inside of frame. ( I got mine from lowes)
Take the glass out of the frame.
Spray paint the frame the color of choice. Let dry completely.
Place the metal in the frame and use your adhesive to secure it in place. I put one coat and let dry.
Put a second coat on and make the corners wide for better security. Let dry completely.
While this is drying you can use the same adhesive and glue your magnets to the back of your make up compacts.
I have much more that I am waiting to dry so I can place them on the station.
A last-minute idea was to attach 2 eye hooks at the top of the frame for hanging purposes.
When everything is dry and ready you can hang it on you wall in the bathroom.
I guess if you have enough space you could just place it on your counter and lean it against the wall.
This way you would not put holes in your walls.
Also when you run out of your make up and need to replace it you can just pull the magnet off of the back and glue it to the new one!
See how freaking cute this is!
I think this would be a great project for a kitchen and your spices! Oh I see another project in my future. How about you???
Alright, I am off to take dinner out of the oven then it is sewing time. I have a cute little project that I am working on.
Pics to come!!
