My Cheap DIY Vanity Makeover!

This is how my vanity has looked for quite a while now! (Hides face in embarrassment) It had gotten to the point that I couldn't efficiently do my makeup in the mornings because I couldn't find anything!


So after looking around at different blogs and Pinterest, I found a cool cheap DIY way to organize everything!

                                                                           I got:
                                              *2 small containers from Michaels for $1 each

                                                  *A paper tray from Target's dollar section

                                                    *Some little glass beads from Michaels

                                                         *And some printed duct tape!

  And then I just wrapped the containers with the duct tape print that I wanted them to be! I know Hello Kitty and houndstooth don't really go together that well, but who doesn't love a little Hello Kitty in the mix???

                                                      And this was how it looked after!

                           All of my most often used items I put in the tray and lids of the containers

       And my favorite brushes I store in the containers and use the glass beads to keep them standing up



                                     And then all of my favorite palettes are just stacked in the corner!

I'm currently working on organizing the rest of my makeup and beauty items and will do a post on that when I am finished!

  9. For the past year or so I've been refusing to get anything as far as organization goes because "I don't have that much makeup".

    I still need to organize. ...I really like what you've done!

  23. That's too funny that I am seeing this post now. I just bought those pink bins from Target dollar bin and told my husband I could make them into something fun for my vanity. I also happen to have the Hello Kitty Duct Tape that was bought as a joke for me from my husband so.... I might just try this out :)
