Make-up Magnet Board

We all know with craft blogs that original ideas are often hard to come by, we find ideas we love and make them our own but we didn't come up with the idea ourselves.  I feel like I've finally done something original here and I'm excited about it.

I'll show you the finished product and then explain.  

Behold my Make-up Magnet Board.

I have a friend who is beautiful and stylish and has always loved make-up but recently took a course that intensified her love.  Her renewed interest has worn off on me and it made me remember eye shadows I'd hidden away that were gathering dust.  I pulled them all out and was shocked at just how many I had.  My old make-up organization/storage consists of a basket that sits on my bathroom counter, I put all my hair stuff and make-up stuff in the basket and used maybe 3 shadows in my daily rotation.  With the addition of my pile of eye shadows it now looked like this.
The basket was a mess and I was overwhelmed with all my choices never knowing what to use, digging through to see what I had and find what I wanted was a pain.  I needed a way to display them all and my brilliant mother and I came up with this idea.


I started by making a magnet board, (nothing original here), I used this super ugly frame I found at Salvation Army.


I painted it (The hard way, with a brush instead of spray paint.  I look forward to spring when the weather lets me spray paint again.) and then glazed it.

I went to the hardware store and picked up some metal and had them cut it to fit inside my frame.  Then I used spray adhesive to stick some fabric to the metal.  I put it all back together and it looked like this.
Here comes the brilliant part though.

Here's the stash of eye shadows we're talking about (I've even added a couple since this picture).

I went to the dollar store and picked up a bunch of magnets and hot glued one to the back of each shadow (I actually needed 3 magnets for my bronzer).  I considered using a stronger glue but when the makeup is empty I want to be able to peel the magnet off, hot glue lets me do that and it's held up really well.



Next I wanted a place to store my brushes and liners though.  An orange pill container with some oil rubbed bronze spray paint made it beautiful and 3 extra strong magnets glued on the back holds nice and secure.

Now it hangs in my bathroom wall and every morning I'm excited to play with my different make-up.  It feels sort of like art and an expression of me.  

I thought tomorrow I'd do a little feature of how I use some of this make-up and talk about my favorite products so come back and check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fabulous Genius!!! This is just what I need for my wonderful teenage daughter...who takes over the bathroom counter daily with her makeup...which upsets her two brothers to no end! It will give her a terrifically easy way to store her makeup, and keep the counters clear!!! Thank you!!! Now...to go lay out her makeup so I can judge how large of a frame I need...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really love this idea! It's a great way to play with some of the makeup that's tucked away in the cabinet or drawer. Awesome!

  70. Wow what a great idea!! I love this! it came out great and never had seen anything like it before!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. hi! question: if you go on a trip and want to take makeup with you do all the magnets stick together?

    ReplyDelete
  72. I've gone a way a couple weekends since I glued all the magnets on. I take the makeup I want and throw it in my bag and they really don't stick together. They haven't been inconvenient at all.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh man this is genius, need to make this, maybe I'll make it, then post to my blog and track it back to you this is sooo neat! following you!! Christina

  74. This is so cool. I have to make time to create this. I am so excited to make this. I just have to make some space on my dresser to set this up.
    I am starting a blog too. Its http://findinmyowntruth.blogspot.com/ and after I have made a version of it I will post it and link you in.
    What an amazing original idea!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I saw your feature on Sumo's Sweet Stuff. This is a fantastic idea!
    This would be a great way to add a little fun decor into my boring bathroom and have all my beloved eyeshadows easily accessible instead of thrown in my broken down makeup bag!

    ReplyDelete
  76. This is a great idea especially if you have the wall space! Now your makeup doesn't take up valuable counter space!

  79. Okay, so I know you have some awesome comments on here, and I have nothing new to add but I just have to say AWESOME PROJECT! I am totally gonna do this in my bathroom! I totally agree, one of my biggest fear sin starting a craft blog was my lack of original ideas. Way to go on one of your own! Good work, keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete

    I have a metal bulletin board now that I am going to transform into this. I'll give you credit when I do it and post it.
    Thanks!

  104. But you get free lipstick for returning your empties, at MAC now you have magnets on them

    ReplyDelete
  105. That's why I only used hot glue, the magnets are very easy to pull off.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I just found this on Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/pin/25693757/) and I am TOTALLY making one of these!! My mom just got a ton of really nice makeup for me and I was so excited but so bummed because I knew it would get shoved in a drawer and I would just continue to use the few that I always use.. but now that won't happen! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yes thank you for your inspiration!..as you can see I did mine a little smaller..but I LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  108. This is pretty much the most awesome thing I have ever seen. Nice job!

    ReplyDelete
  109. This is amazing! I totally want to make one of these! Perfect for keeping your make up visible and (in my own personal experience of little brothers)and if hung on a wall, out of little hands.

    ReplyDelete
  110. That is absolutely brilliant. I am SOOOOO doing that. Maybe then I would actually take the time to do my makeup every once and a while. ;) Thanks!

    (PS - found your blog through childmade.com)

    ReplyDelete
  111. is great, I think it could be a fantastic gift!

    ReplyDelete
  112. this is hands down the most original and genius thing i've seen in bloggy world! just letting you know now i WILL be stealing this idea immediately! you just solved a major problem in my life! lol i'm a new follower based in this :D

    ReplyDelete
  113. I actually saw this done a few years ago for Bare Escentuals but yours is much prettier! The ones I saw they had just attached large sheets of steel (or something like that they got at a home improvement store) to the wall. It was very industrial looking. Not that there is anything wrong with that but I could actually see the one you made in my house. Awesome job!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love this I am going to share this and make one!

    ReplyDelete
  115. It would be great inside a bathroom cupboard door if you didn't want to see it all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  116. This is so beautiful and inspires me to make something like this! Love it :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. this is super unique -- love it.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love this idea. Im SO going to make this!! I will post a link to your page from my blog!! Im so glad I found your blog, I cant wait to look through and see what other ideas you have!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. You and your mom are absolutely brilliant! I love this idea and can't wait to show it to my daughter. We could both use something like that. It's not only pretty and practical but how nice to be able to see everying like that at once!

    5 stars for this one! *****

    ReplyDelete
  120. That's an amazing idea! Now I'm going to want to magnetize everything in the house.

    ReplyDelete
  121. May I ask where you got your metal... I've been looking into doing this because I love it but I don't know where to find the metal especially for a reasonable price.
    Please help! :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. As soon as I saw this I headed to hobby lobby to get supplies! Had my brother inlaw cut the metal and I love it! I posted a pic earlier today on my Fb and I amg getting lots of likes and comments, I sent the ones wanting to know how to do it here!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Now that you have magnets on everything, you could ditch your old, unorganized makeup travel bag and get a cute vintage lunchbox...makeup board on the go!

    ReplyDelete
  124. So brilliant!!!!! It's exactly what I needed.

    ReplyDelete
  125. So great I had to add it to my "Favorite Organizing Products and Decluttering Tips" list on SkinnyScoop. Now I need to dig through your blog and add more of your tips. You are brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Where did you get the supplies? My dollar store didn't have the magnets, and Sierra's wants 7 dollars for a 12 by 12 sheet of metal! Home Depot wants 9 for a 12 by 24, but they won't cut it. What are your frugal secrets?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Best idea ever. I need to do this.

    ReplyDelete
  128. this is genius! imma try one!

    ReplyDelete
  129. nice project easy & chic! I would like to re-blog your post... with your link on my blog: I really love your idea!

    ReplyDelete
  130. LOVE It! I totally followed your tut and made one! I love how it turned out I already had bought some metal so I just used it and then still have to make or get some type of a frame for it! Thanks for posting! Here's mine: http://www.flickr.com/photos/scheuermans/5935799211/in/photostream

  131. OMG I love this ideal and really to top it how you was using the pill bottles I can't wait to make one tomorrow.thanks for sharing a great brilliant ideal with us.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Thanks for sharing this amazing make up board.
    Really nice post.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Use a magnetic whiteboard to save on assembly hassle AND let you write notes on it. Might not be strong enough for hanging cups, tho, so YMMV depending on board quality.

    ReplyDelete
  138. What a wonderfully creative idea! Just had to share your post on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/downsizeandgetorganized) for all those ladies who just toss their make-up in a drawer!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Love this. I'd actually come across your blog before and loved it the first time around, then one of my non-makeup obsessed friends emailed me your link, which I thought was funny, so I had to comment :) Great, great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I LOVE THIS!!! I'm going to do this project & my husband will thank you since we are always vying for space in the bathroom!

    Thanks for posting!

    ReplyDelete

  146. This is a Great Idea for makeup hoarding fools like me! I have baskets overflowing of makeup. Spilling over everywhere. We both know I don't put ALL of it on my face at one time. The other day I actually put together a look that really suited me-eye shadow- wise, and thought-If I can just remember to keep this together for the next time... You've given me an awesome idea!!! I am also a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I do/sell/teach/create all things Paper Crafting. This inspires me for craft storage as well! I'll post you what I come up with !!! TFS! Gonna add your link to my facebook page now! Ladies, if your interested in

  160. It is like art. I am exactly the same, tons of colors, none of which I use because they are tucked away. This is so perfect! Pinning it right away!

  162. I made one for my Bare Minerals! I just used a cookie sheet and spray painted it. I drilled holes, put a ribbon through and glued magnets on my make up!! I love it. Thank you!

  163. This is a great idea! I think it would make a really awesome gift for your sister, best friend, or bridesmaid. You could make one up, include a cup for brushes, and supply some extra magnets. If you were feeling especially nice, you could toss in a lip gloss or two. I like this idea so much that I've reposted on my blog at http://poshpurpose.blogspot.com!

  167. I love this!!! I actually had an idea about 6 months ago to make something like this for all my polishes in the salon but soon realized probally not the best idea incase one came off and busted on the floor beneath! Im totally making this for my massive shadow collection though! Kudos!

  170. ONE BIG PROBLEM with this idea. Makeup contains a metal called Titanium Dioxide, so when I put the magnets under the makeup, the composition of the makeup actually changed. It went from a powdering substance to something much harsher because the magnet cause the titanium dioxide to separate from the other ingredients.

  171. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing! I use the frame idea for my jewelry... but magnets and makeup... Brilliant! Thanks again and great job!
