DIY makeup station


Life with teenagers is hard.

There. I said it.

You ride on the roller coaster of emotions right along with them.

Some days... I just wanna jump off.

But then you have those moments.

Those glorious Momma daughter moments and you're glad you held on.

This post isn't about raising teenagers but I feel one coming on.

Stick around. you made need some encouragement.

I know I do some days. many days.

OK..

Now for that makeup station DIY I promised.  :)

Having girls means having makeup. Lots of makeup..

Having girls in the house means lots of bathroom time.

So what happens when you have one guest bath for two girls?

You make things work.

So this is how I fixed our need.

I visited our local Home Depot.

(This is not a paid  post nor was I compensated in any way.)

I started with a large mirror.

Home Depot has them in many large sizes. 
You can also find these at Wal Mart and Lowes.

This one came from Home Depot and ran about 35.00.


The hardware came with this one.

It's as simple as screwing in the four brackets.

You will need extra help with this.

I'm scared to death of mirrors!!!! crazy I know lol


I then found two lovely brackets.

I'm thinking of adding a middle one just for some extra support.

You can find these for around 5.00 and up.


Now for the fun part.... the shelf.

I knew I wanted something that could be cleaned easily. Makeup can get messy haha.

I found these nice boards in the closet section at Home Depot.

They have this coating on them that makes cleaning a breeze.

Just wipe down with a damp rag.

The boards are available in many lengths. 

I believe the one we purchased was around 7.00



This project went up in less than 45 minutes!!!


The happiness and peace it bring to this family.... timeless


The clear containers that hold her endless makeup can be found in about any department store.

We found most of Maddy's at Home Goods.


They are heaven sent!

I love that they are clear so she can locate what she needs and everything has a place.



We still need to add lighting around the mirror.

That's coming soon.

We are also searching for the perfect seating.

I think I found a stool at TJ Maxx but we will see.


Now that she has a place to put everything, I passed down a few of my Grandmothers old hat pins.

I can remember visiting her and looking at these beauties on her dresser.

Kinda makes sad.

Maddy is our baby.

It's hard watching her grow...


But the thing that makes me smile the BIGGEST

She is still a teenager and for that, I'm hanging on to every precious moment...

even when the ride gets bumpy.

  1. Brilliant for beginning to end, Susie! I have always loved the mirrors at Home Depot, I have one in my living room and I always recommend looking there to my friends.

    Teenagers! Ha. This was your smallest hurdle, but I love it!

  2. I have 3 (!!!!!!!) teenagers - one boy and two girls. They all have to share one bathroom (which is very small). I bought each girl a vanity for their bedrooms and some clear makeup caddies like the ones you bought at HomeGoods. This decision has been an absolute LIFESAVER for our family. One great suggestion, you may want to get a small tabletop magnification mirror. They have them at Costco, Bed Bath & Beyond, and many other stores. My girls love them! Anyways, you did a great job in your daughter's room and I am impressed with how budget friendly your project seems.
    Best,

  3. thus increasing Watches Replica the power reserve by eighteen hours. The simplified design also allows for easier servicing, with many major components replaceable in-situ. But the biggest change was the relocation of the running seconds hand to Designer handbags the six o’clock sub-dial from the nine – it’s easy to imagine the old position bugging the designers at Rolex for Replica Rolex Watches decades.

  28. A lesser known fact about packers and movers in India is the level of disorganization in the industry, which is the main reason there are so many unprofessional and fake movers who take up relocation jobs and either provide horrible service or vanish with the household items all together.
