First of all, I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I live in a basement where the lighting is not the best nor do I have the resources for good lighting equipment.
Before I moved back to Woodstock my amazing boyfriend, Spencer, picked up this old display that a store was getting rid of. At first I was confused as to why he wanted it but when he told me his plan, my heart melted. He saw them throwing it away as the store was renovating it’s look and he immediately thought that I could use it for storing my makeup. I’m trying not to gush, but I think I got pretty lucky with him.
He brought it home cleaned it up, painted it a fresh coat of white and added a touch of grey to the shelves. I actually think he was more excited about it then I was. Spencer is always looking for things to create for our own personal use, or for others. For example, he made our headboard from scratch out of wooden skids, and has sold a few live edged coat racks. Every time he starts a new project he thinks of more to add to the list, I swear he’s never bored.
But this amazing spinning display was done just for me. I ordered cute organizers from Amazon, and found a basket from Michaels. There are also shelves that hold my perfume on the one side, and his cologne on the other. If this thing isn’t perfect for storing makeup, I don’t know what is.
It took me a little while to get the funds for the organizers, but it took me even longer finding that perfect wire basket to store upcoming blog items. Each organizer is linked below each picture. So without further ado, here is how I store my makeup and perfume. How do you like to organize your makeup collection?
