Well, I finally got around to cleaning and displaying my make-up brushes. Last week, I posted about all the fabulous and beautiful ways to organize your make-up. My make-up and brushes were hiding away in an old and dirty travel bag under my sink. There. I said it. I'm so ashamed. My own post was the inspiration to doing this.
Wowzers! I LOVE it! Can I say that about my own work and not sound haughty? It just came out so much better than I even expected.
I cleaned my make-up brushes this last week- finally. I'll post about that on Tips and Tricks Tuesday, so stay tuned. I didn't want to just throw them back in a bag or a drawer, so I decided to "display" them like so.
Here's the best part about my little girly display. I already had the tray, the glass candle holder, and the beads. I didn't go out and shop for any of it! You all know, that's my kind of decorating! But if you're interested in getting these items, I bought everything at the Dollar Tree a while ago. I'm pretty sure they still have them.
I set out my favorite and most often used jewelry pieces. Together, everything looks perfectly matched. Personally, I love the mix of gold and silver, so I might just keep that gold box thingy next to the tray. I haven't really decided. By the way, I got that gold box (it's a Christmas candle holder) for just $3 at Bath and Body during their semi-annual clearance. I didn't buy lotions or soap. Just these gold boxes.
So what do you think? A little ribbon, some marbles or beads, and a glass candle holder is all you need to bring a little beauty to your life.
Love little decorating and practical moments!
