If you are like me you have seen several different forms of how to put your make up on a magnetic board on pinterest about a million times. I kept thinking what a great idea but come on I do not have that much make up and where would I put it and why would I spend that much money on something that I might not even use. Finally I had, had it and decided I would come up with a cheap way to do this and give it a shoot but was in no hurry. The other day I went into Joann's for just a cupcake box for my new business, one of my many I have/had, and of course I walked out with way more than just that ONE cupcake box. How many of you have walked into Joann's, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels and come out with just what they went in for? Not many of you I am sure. Well as I was walking around I came across my solution to my make up issue! Remember I did not want to spend that much and I did not want it to be too much work. Something I didn't mention is when I go back up to school I have a medicine cabinet, that I never use, that causes a problem for this solution so I needed a way to hang it or adhere it to it without damaging the hideous mirror medicine cabinet. The joys of renting, right?!?!?! So as I was saying I came across this metal plates that come in several different colors and here in Texas cost $9.99. I thought hmmm this could work so I whipped out my 40 % off coupon, btw Joann's is my absolute favorite place to shop because they have the best prices and the BEST coupon policies, and bought it. After my coupon this magnetic plate was only $5.99 I also picked up some 3M Velcro picture hanging strips and a pack of round magnets. I have to say I am pretty impressed with myself because it only cost me about ten bucks! So here is the DIY and final product of the project.
- Metal plate in any color from Joann's Fabric (it is used for organization) $5.99 after coupon
- A package of magnets (however many you need)
- Glue gun
- Glue for glue gun
- 3M hanging strips
Optional:Wire metal magnetic basket for tubed make up, brushes, and tools
