Try This at Home: Scrap Wood Make-up Brush Holder

A few weeks ago on a plane I was vigorously going through a pile of magazines that had stacked up.  They’re mostly Elle Decor, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, and House Beautiful, but I have some Vogue and InStyle thrown in there because I do work in the fashion industry and try to stay in the loop in that regards too.

It’s funny, though, because as I’m flipping through InStyle, what page do I pull out?  Not an outfit, or a handbag, but a DIY makeup holder blurp by Sabrina Soto.  I tucked it in my ‘articles to keep’ folder and was excited to get home and make it!  Her version was pretty simple, and easy- just drill some holes into a piece of craft wood and done!  I loved the simplicity, but wanted to add a little ‘wow’ to my version.

I walked into Home Depot and asked if they had any scrap pieces, which they gave to me for free! A little left-over stain, and some decorative brass ‘L’ brackets did the trick just perfectly!

I like my newest little DIY! It’s a little girlier than usual, but like I said yesterday, that is ok! I hope you enjoy and will try yourself!

Have a BEAUTIFUL Wednesday!

    I LOVE this!!!!! I don’t have any bathroom sink storage for it at the moment, but I’m definitely going to remember this for when we buy a house. Great job!

    I’ve thought about doing something like this for eyeliners. I apparently have a lot of eyeliner pencils.

    Stupid question, but where did you find the decorative L brackets? Are they just in the hardware aisle at Lowe’s or something?

      Heather,
      Yes! They were in the hardware area at Lowes!

    Ohhh Erin lovely! I’ve already hinted to my husband that this would be the worlds most perfect Christmas present! (yep I know we really extravagant!)

    What a great idea! Personally, I think yours turned out way better than Sabrina’s! I love the little extra oomph of style.

    Love this idea! The first thing i thought of was my main makeup storage issue – mascara & eyeliners. Or a pen holder at my desk at work. Love it. Ashley -you could easily mount it on a wall to add to your storage!
