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.

The Adolf Family Five said...

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...

Karen Tapahe said...

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!

Outrageously awesome! However, with my stash of makeup, which you can read about on my blog, the whole wall would come down if I tried this.

Wow, that is totally awesome!!

Makeup By LisaMarie said...

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

meenalu said...

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

Laura said...

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.

Andrea Hall said...

i love it!

Christina said...

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

amiee said...

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!

Tiffany said...

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!

Our Seven Dwarfs said...

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

She Made It Crafts said...

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!

Cook Clean Craft said...

Wow! That is fantastic. I've really got to make one (and maybe start wearing a bit of make-up again!).

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!

Sarah @ The Bird's Papaya said...

I BEYOND love this idea.
I know what you mean by the "original idea" thing. THIS IS SO ORIGINAL AND COOL! You need to patent it ASAP!

Wow, this is really really awesome! I don't use makeup too often, and my bathroom/vanity area is tiny at the moment, but I envision a smaller sized version of this in my future home, or above my dresser. Thanks for sharing!

Monica...an ordinary MORMON MOM said...

Jenny said...

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

Laura said...

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

Ashleigh said...

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!!

Dalttuck said...

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

Being Creative to Keep My Sanity said...

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

shinypigeon said...

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.

Caroline said...

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)

Angela said...

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

idesign said...

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

Dmhm08 said...

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!

Gretchen said...

I love this I am going to share this and make one!

SiSi Sparkles said...

This is AMAZING!

Carrol said...

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

myhighestself said...

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

Lizscraps said...

this is super unique -- love it.

PhotoMommy said...

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!!

Mary Lou said...

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! *****

Laurel Santiago said...

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

Jess said...

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! :)

Jillians31life said...

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!

Anne Marie said...

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!

Danielle said...

Brilliant idea!

Molly said...

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

Eden said...

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.

http://www.skinnyscoop.com/list/eden/favorite-organizing-products-and-decluttering-tips

Heidi said...

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?

MotherMotherOcean said...

Best idea ever. I need to do this.

Tishya said...

this is genius! imma try one!

Eleonora Boiserie & C. said...

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

Kaiya said...

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

GREAT IDEA!

gerrygadget said...

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.

Susana said...

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Now I want to make a wall sized one! haha. Thanks!

Labix said...

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.

Juliet said...

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

Heather said...

I loved this idea so much! I put my own spin on it and copied you. See my blog! (And of course I credited you for the brilliant idea.) Thanks!

I've been seeing these for months all over Pinterest.. love your take on it (covering it with fabric), very fun.

Craft Donkey said...

lol ooo got ur comment. I didn't know!! hee hee I looked at the dates and pressume.. my bad. I do love yours though, never seen it in fabric. I didn't mean nay offense by saying your take on it. I just notice the date and I ordered one of these off of etsy last yr for Christmas for a friend.. I dont use enough make up.. lol to even consider making one of these.. but I do love them for other purposes.
