storage ideas & a litte DIY project

          If you follow my blog then you know that i'm a big fan of organizing stuff. When I shared my pictures of my vanity some1 suggested that I get a bookshelf :) &&& I was like DuHHh why didn't i think about it earlier. Luckily I already had a bookshelf that i was using for books and other random bobbles.

          On top, I still have my little mesh drawers & a tower from the container store. In the first row, I used plastic silverware organizers that I found in walmart they came in white & the dh spray painted them black.

          The organizers can be found in the kitchen section at walmart with all the utensil organizer things. The larger ones come in a set of two & the smaller ones in a set of three each set was under $2. The spray paint was also from walmart and it was only 97cents. I almost purchased the pink spray paint but I remembered that i'm pretty messy with my make up :(


p.s. if anyone has any suggestions or storage ideas please let me know :)

  6. The OCD in me is loving this post! I can't tell you how happy it makes me to put all my cosmetics and polishes in their own little bins, lol.

  7. I do the same thing...use lots of baskets and office supplies to store my makeup!


  8. I like that aside from giving helpful tips, you show your organization. I'm so anal so this really caught my attention.

  9. Thanks for sharing. I see a lot of storage trays but most are in the wrong color like white. I plan to use your idea: spray paint :)
