New & Improved Makeup Storage...

I'm back with a storage post, one of my favourite things to do is organise and reorganise... as you might have guessed!

I had a reshuffle in the bedroom (post on that tomorrow) and things are feeling fresh for Spring!

I revamped the Ikea wooden 'moppe' drawers, I had initially painted them white but decided to cover them with fabric. Now, this is the 2nd time I have covered them with fabric as the first time I did it I did it with bold, colourful and busy fabrics, this time I opted for a softer look. Not sure if this was a good idea as it can get dirty quickly but I shall see how it goes, if I change my mind it's easy to redo! :)


Dymo labels in action.

To cover the drawers in fabric it's seriously easy. 

You will need:
  • Scrap fabric
  • Scrap paper to make pattern
  • PVA Glue
  • A bowl
  • An old brush
  • Scissors
  • Dymo Labeler - If you want to label your drawers. (My Dymo labeler was from Amazon)
  1. Draw around your drawers on scrap paper to create a pattern.
  2. Place pattern onto fabric and cut.
  3. Pour your PVA glue into a bowl and brush directly onto the drawer and stick fabric on top.
  4. Wait for it to dry and use.


The lavender flowers and glass vase was from 'The range' priced at about £3. The Mirror on the wall was from a charity shop, and the closeup mirror is from TK Maxx.

The antique glass dressing table pot is from 'Dot Com Gift Shop' (This was sent for consideration for review)

The brush holder is from Ikea and is actually a candle holder, the glass bird is also from 'The range' the tea light holders are from local shabby chic boutiques, the white wooden letter holder which holds my palettes is from 'BHS' and I made the crochet bunting.

How are you storing your makeup? and would you consider covering your drawers in fabric?

Great post! Im torn between the Alex and Moppe Ikea drawers for my makeup storage when I shift into my new duplex next month.I've a 16 months son, kept thinking he'll be having gala time browsing all my makeup stuffs if I put them closer to the floor or must attach a rackonto the wall to place the moppe cabinet

Thanks for sharing this post I also share with you some tip hope you like. The self-storage facility has put in place adequate security measures.You can access your self-storage unit when you want to The units on offer in the self-storage facility are the right size for you and could cope with any future needs you might have to increase or decrease the space you rent. The self-storage facility offers units that will suit the goods you want to store - for example, if you're storing valuable items you want an enclosed unit with concealing walls so that nobody can see what's inside.
