Magnetic Makeup Board…

As many of you know I blogged for Birchbox
last week. I had so much fun working
with them, & I wanted to share 
with you some of the things I blogged about
just in case you missed it…

I blogged for them a total of {5} Days.
Each day I wrote about something different
from my magnetic makeup board to my
favorite cosmetic products.

Here is my new magnetic board…

As many of you may know I made a makeup board
 a while back which you can see {here}.
It wasn’t exactly what I wanted so I made 
this one a little more lovely
& a little more me…

Items Used:

{2} Magnetic sheets from Lowes
{1} Antique gold picture frame from an antique store

I painted the metal sheets a pretty robins egg blue &
used super glue to attach the metal sheets to 
the back of the frame. 
I hot glued magnets to the back of my favorite makeup
products to make the products stick to the magnet board.

I hung my magnetic makeup board in my vanity closet.
It makes getting ready in the morning so easy
because my makeup is conveniently within reach &

Stay tuned for my other blog posts
from Birchbox.. I will be sharing them with you soon!!

  1. That's a pretty nifty idea! Alas I have a 3 year old, so I have to hide all my makeup. But when he gets older and doesn't think makeup is paint, I'm totally doing this!

  3. Hi,this is one of the prettiest magnetic boards I've seen. Did you use those heavy duty little magnets or just plain ones (like the ones I bought in a huge roll from Michaels Crafts)? I'd love to try this but don't which magnets to use.

  4. Liz Marie says:

    I used regular magnets from lowes… they are very magnetic and seem heavy duty so Idk if they come in different packages. I think the ones I bought came in a pack of 4. I hope this helps!!

    So creative!

  21. I did this for my daughter but I put her initial in bling on the corner & put scrapbook paper in the middle,then I painted a LARGE medicine bottle,hot glued fake pearls around the top rim & glued it to the bottom of the frame to hold her brushes. she loved it !

  22. Michelle @ Loving Every Second says:

    What a great idea for makeup!

  23. That's such a neat idea. When I have a spot to hang a board like that, I think I might try it.:) I'm a new follower from Show and Share.:)

  24. Jenny @ Simcoe Street says:

    Featuring this great idea on my blog today!

  25. I really love this idea! Makes perfect sense! You are super creative & talented! Thanks so much for linking up at Show & Share! SO happy that you did!

  26. Jennie Young says:

    This is genius! I think this will be my next fun project, because I just can't wait to make one! Thanks for the inspiration…

  27. I’ve been trying to make this but can’t find any magnetic sheets?!? Lowes tells me they don’t sell any such thing? Any ideas? I tried the magnetic paint but its not strong enough and too messy!

  28. I LOVE this idea! I’m going to make one for myself and one for my brother’s girlfriend for Christmas! How much did the magnetic sheet at Lowes cost? Did you have to cut it or do they have different sizes?

  29. I am glad to here the all useful inforamtion

    What is inside your makeup brush holders to make the brushes stand up?

  31. @vduback:
    I dont know what she used but I made some makeup brush holders with river stones in them. I got the vase and the stones from the Dollar store. They work great!

  32. Virginia says:

    Love this!!!!!!

  33. I enjoy what you guys tend to be up too. This sort
    of clever work and exposure! Keep up the fantastic works guys I’ve included you guys to blogroll.

  34. I needed to thank you for this excellent read!! I absolutely enjoyed every bit of it.
    I’ve got you book-marked to check out new stuff you post…

  35. Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had to
    ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I am completely new to running a blog but I do
    write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my
    own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  36. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
    experiencing issues with your site. It seems like some of the text
    on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
