For the past couple of days it has been filled with trial and error. But once I finally got all the supplies I needed to complete the project, it was quite fun to do. The idea of this magnetic makeup board came from Pinterest. I spend my Saturdays running errands and finding really cool things on that site, it’s definitely a girls best friend. When I came across this idea I knew I definitely had to try it, even though I’m nowhere near a makeup junkie. I’m a lipstick hoarder and seeing them cluttering my sink was driving me crazy, so this magnetic makeup board was a must try.

Here is the picture of all of my makeup crowding my sink.

Now look at how much space I have on my sink.

Detailed instructions on this DIY project are as followed, I hope you have as much fun as I did.

1) These are the materials I used for this project

I bought the picture frame and spray paint from Meijers. The magnetic strips, superglue, and sheet metal all come from Home Depot. I realized that the sheet metal wouldn’t fit in the picture frame so I purchased smaller sheets and bought a new picture frame because it had the detail I was looking for.

2) Here are the new materials I purchased

I love the detail in this frame much better, don’t you agree?

the magnetic organizer, clay, and black & glitter Felt background material all come from Meijers.

3) I spray painted the frame and the magnetic organizer

4) I then used the sheet metal to cover the glass on the frame. I used Liquid Glue Adhesive which can be used for glass, metal, wood,foam, paper, leather and more. You want to make sure the the metal is secure on the glass and won’t move out of place. I used both pieces of sheet metal to have enough coverage for my makeup magnets.

5) I then used a piece of fabric that I bought from Meijers to cover the sheet metal. I glued down the fabric to make sure it stays in place (Liquid Nails Adhesive) . The zebra print and gold together are two amazing combinations.

6) I used the purple clay to form the letters on the felt material. I created little labels for the sections on my board, “Lips ( for the lipstick section), Eyes (for the eyeshadow section), and Face (for the foundation and concealer section).

7) I then cut the magnet strips into mall pieces and glued them to the back of the labels and the makeup with superglue

The makeup stayed up for the most part but I will purchase a stronger magnet of some sort so that it’ll be secured. I hope you have as much fun as I did and let your creative juices flow with this cool makeup space saver. And don’t forget to DIY In Style!
