Making My Own Make Up Board...



 - This is the original picture I bought from Goodwill.  It was amusing on it's own, since it's so true.  I got it for 1.60.

It was a huge ordeal getting the metal sheet for the magnets to stick to.   Anyone planning to do this go to Ace NOT Menards, Menards was awful.

I am planning to spray paint the frame and probably do different paper or fabric on the sheet of metal, I'm just trying to save funds so I stuck with paper I had and figured I could always spray paint later.

I left a space blank I'm waiting til I find an awesome picture to put there.

I have had a few things fall out, but that's because of the glue I used (it was cheap) and not because of the metal sheet or magnets.  At least I know that much, at some point I need to get better glue.
 - Sorry this shot is sideways.   Thanks Blogger.

I'm trying to put just some of my everyday stuff on here.   I don't really have a lot of everyday stuff honestly so I've added some shadows I figured could be go to stuff.   Mascara, primer, remover, etc.
 - Inside the little basket thing.  I got it at the dollar store.   I just kind of put brushes and other primers in here atm, I need to clean those brushes too, so sorry if they look a bit less than stellar.
- And a cute little piggy magnet I have, he guards the makeups.

My mom also made me a magnet I haven't put up yet.

Have you ever made a make up board?  I wanted to because I thought it'd be fun and because I know the apartment I'll be moving into is going to have like no bathroom space at all pretty much and I thought this would help.

It was a lot of fun putting it together. And I'm sure it's going to be really helpful with space and what not.
