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
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.
Step 2: Step Two - Attaching the fabric
After taping the pan as shown in the photo, I laid the fabric over the top and worked from the centre of the pan, slowly pushing fabric onto the tape in an outwards manner.
Step 3: Step Three - Finishing the magnetic board
I used some 3M Command double sided wall strips to stick the pans to the wall. I let these pans stay up on the wall without the cosmetics for several hours to let the strips settle (as suggested by the manufacturer).
Step 4: Step Four - Attaching magnets to the the cosmetics
(When sticking the magnets onto your cosmetics cases, don't stick them over the name of the colour of that particular product. Otherwise, you may not know the name of your favourite shade when you want to repurchase).
