Decorating the Makeup Table

February 6, 2013

Since I wrote about makeup tables yesterday I thought today I’d write about fun ways to organize and decorate it., especially since that’s my favorite part!

When I think about a makeup table I basically think of 2 things, makeup (duh) and jewelry!  I tend to like things out and displayed (but pretty) so organization combined with clever ideas are a must!


This is a super neat idea especially for my 14 year old daughter who tends to have her makeup all over her bathroom sink.  Just pop a magnet on the back of the makeup and stick it on some sort of magnetic board. (I’d think you could even use a cookie sheet if you painted it a pretty color!)

My daughter still likes to do crafts and this is a simple, fun and pretty one to do.  All you’d have to do is paint a soup can a pretty and coordinating color of your vanity and hot glue those half glass beads from Michael’s/Hobby Lobby on it.


My motto the more small drawer/organizers the better!

I’ve been wanting to buy some metal grating at the hardware store everytime I go there.  (Yes, fun for me is walking up and down Lowe’s or Home Depot!)  I think this jewelry holder might be on my list to do!

I also love the ceramic egg crate for earrings.  This would be perfect for my daughter!  The key with a 14 year old is easy!

Although…since this is the year of easy for me maybe just a towel bar and rings!

I’ve been known to use shower hooks to organize before.

Last, one of my favorite images, mismatched tea cups in the drawer!

I’ve made a few small changes to my makeup/vanity area so I’ll show you them tomorrow!!
