I mentioned in my previous post we were going to be moving soon and finally it happened! Although we did go from a house to an apartment I cannot be happier. We lost a back yard and a garage but we gained a 3rd bedroom which I am super happy for. This will be our “guest bedroom” and my makeup/shoe room! Sadly I couldn’t get up a #MOTD over the weekend since we were so busy and I skipped on the makeup but I do apologize!!
Let me begin by telling you guys I AM ALL ABOUT REPURPOSING RECYCLING THINGS! I mean it. I am constantly looking out for things I can re use or give it a new purpose. We all see on pinterest these ideas of using mason jars as brush holders and while I am all for it . . . I won’t spend money on a jar just for brushes. Instead I use Classico Spaghetti sauce jars. I started doing this because I noticed the jars had measurements on it so I went on a huge jar saving binge, LOL! I use these jars for makeup brushes, measuring cups, cotton pad holder, and to drink out of them. I have even stained some and use them to decorate.
I also took this hot pink basket from my daughter to hold my palettes. I gave birth while my husband was deployed so I didn’t have a nursery and I had to get creative when it came to putting baby clothes away and these $1 basket from Target were a life saver, then and now! I saved the gelato container because it reminded me of the Bath and Body works big candle everyone cleans out and uses as brush holders but since I don’t use candles, lol, this will do. I saw on Facebook a cool idea about using contact paper to wrap it in so maybe I’ll give that a try since the container does have letters. The acrylic lipstick holder I purchased at Marshall’s for something insanely cheap like $5.99.
So for now this is my little set up. I still have to set up some more products that are packed away and some more brushes. I also need to set up our Jordan’s (you didn’t think I meant heels did you?!?) lol. I also need a chair but I am so happy to be out of my husbands way. My makeup stash was taking up our bathroom counter. So this Monday this is my favorite. . . my OWN little space. I can’t wait to get some wall decor up and my shelves for the extra stuff!
What’s some stuff you like repurposing for your makeup room/stash?!? Or a good place to buy makeup storage (besides ikea sadly it isn’t an option for us)?!?
Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
