I had so much rubbish all piled up, out of sight, in a box lying flat that I forgot I had it! I was so sick of rumaging and the space my previous organiser took up (see pic in Step 1) so here's what I came up with.
The idea came from matchbox draws and other storage items I have on my chest of draws. I also managed to clear out some things I don't use anymore making more free space. It's so much easier to grab and go!
Get an empty shoe box.
(Picture of my previous organiser; pretty but bulky!)
You can use the shoe box lid cut up or a second smaller box to create shelving.
Paint! Or cover with paper or fabric whatever you want. I went for a rustic/antique look. I just slapped the paint on!
I decided to use a small second box for shelving. Glueing or stapling the two cut up parts of the shoebox lid just didn't work.
The smaller box is removable for easy access. It also has two holes in the top for make up brushes.
Organise your things...
...and here is mine finished.
