Makeup Organizer

Makeup Organizer

You know we are all about flea markets, garage sales, and repurposing items to continue their story.  Not to mention all about saving a buck or two.  Here’s a quick look at how we use things around here taking something beyond it’s intended purpose!

Revyn had been keeping her makeup in a cosmetic bag, until her blush broke.  That bag ended up with blush powder everywhere in it.  I’m sure your nodding your head saying “yep, that’s happened to me”.  So you probably know that you’re not going to get that bag clean again.  Into the trash it went.  In our flea market ventures we purchased something that she is now using for her makeup.  It’s fun, quirky, and easy to clean.



If you use more brushes than she does, you can stash them in those openings in the top.  Here it is without any makeup so you can see the inside.  The metal half circles that poke out from the sides are great at holding things upright.


It’s so neat.  We bought two of these and now I’m taking the second one.  Next time you need a storage container, think outside the box or bag.

    • I’m with ya on finding different things to use for storage. I try to find other stuff besides baskets and bins. Glad you like it.

    • Thanks! We love it, and have the same love for vintage and bohemian as you. The more we can repurpose and reuse, the more things that become my favorite!
