When you have a small bathroom, and a LOT of makeup and products, you definitely need some bathroom organizers! Here are a few incredibly easy DIY solutions for you. I have zero storage space in my bathroom so for the past two years, since I moved into my husband’s apartment, our entire bathroom has been littered with all of my makeup, hair spray, mousse, creams, body washes, shampoos, conditioners…you get the idea. Our bathroom counter could barely be seen beneath all of my accessories. Within the past several months I’ve been revamping our entire bathroom, trying to organize and store things in a way that keeps them readily available and pleasant looking, yet up off the counter. I hope these bathroom organizers will help you do the same!
1. Magnetic Makeup Board
I had a small magnetic makeup board before, but when I made all of my new bathroom organizers I decided to make a new, oversized board. I bought some zinc sheet metal at Home Depot for $19.99. It is 3 feet tall by 2 feet wide because I basically have enough makeup to open my own makeup store and I’d like to be able to see it all without digging through everything I have. You can get much much cheaper sheet metal in smaller sizes. You can even use cookie sheets! I used Mod Podge to adhere some pretty fabric I bought for $2 at a craft store, but you can also use wrapping paper if you coat it afterwards, or scrapbook paper. I bought several packs of extremely strong yet small magnets for $3.50 per 12 pack at Home Depot and used a hot glue gun to attach one magnet to the back of each makeup item. I tore the label off of a prescription bottle and attached two magnets to it to store small things like my makeup brushes, as well as things I replace fairly often, like my eyeliner. That way I wouldn't be wasting magnets on those things. If you have leftover magnets, line the bottom of your board with them because you can use them to hold your bobby pins and hair clips!
