I do not have a lot of cosmetics but there is enough of them to make a mess of my dressing table after a frantic morning of getting ready for work. I use to throw my powders, blushers, eyeshadows etc. back into a caddy on my table after I use them but more often than not, it was hard fitting them all back in so I leave them out (as seen in the picture). This would really annoy my husband.
I took some inspiration from those Ikea magnetic spice containers which you may seen before, and decided to use the idea of sticking items onto a vertical surface and apply it to my cosmetics and an empty wall. I hope you like my creation.
Step 1: Step One - Choosing the look of the boards
First, I bought 2 shallow stainless steel metal pans from the local utilities shop. I chose squares ones that would fit into the space I had in mind. They cost me $2.50 AUD each.
For the fabric covering, I chose some kitchy Chinese fabric left over from previous projects. I cut the panels so that they were bigger than the pans themselves, knowing that I would l need to stretch the edges on the backside of the pans.
I made sure the fabric was nice and neat by ironing the fabric panels.
