Trend: Simple Makeup Organization for Small Spaces
Flat surfaces are in high demand at my home. We don’t have enough storage space, so my husband and I are constantly coming up with low cost organization ideas. This time around I tackled my makeup and brushes. I typically keep all of these items in a big bag and it’s hard to find exactly what I’m looking for, so we moved my makeup to the inside of the bathroom cabinet door! This little space saver project makes it 100% easier to find what I need, saves shelf room, and it takes no time at all to put together.
- One metal tray. Note: I don’t have a ton of makeup, so I used this small bathroom tray from Target. You can also use baking sheets (they come in all sorts of sizes).
- 2 – 3 acrylic cups (these are from Target)
- magnetic strip
- hot glue
- Command Picture Hanging Strips (I used the 12lb. medium strips)
Gather the makeup you use most often. Use the hot glue gun to attach a strip of magnet to the back of each piece.
Tip: these magnetic strips can’t hold anything too heavy, but can easily hold up light shadows and mascara. If you have heavy items, put them in one of the acrylic cups.
Clean the cupboard door, back of the tray, and cups. When these are dry, follow the Command Strip directions to apply to the back of the cups and tray. Then, attach the tray to the cupboard door.
Put away all your makeup and enjoy!
Do you have any organization ideas for the new year?
