Customize to your needs, use what you have
Oh, how I love glueing stuff together!!! I've been looking for an organizer that can contain a lot of stuff, where I can easily access everything, and not having to use my entire bathroom counter to do so... And this is what I cameup with, ALL BY MYSELF!!! Oh, how clever this invention makes me feel... ;-)
Ok, so this is what I started up with... The four cups are actually quite expensive drinking cups, but since I only have 4 of them, I never get to use them much, and it's a shame to just have them standing in the back of my cupboard, so now I gave them new use! The candle holder was a bronze colour, so I spraypainted it silver to match the rest of my stuff. The plate I got at a thrift store, and I loved the fact that it has the dividers in it, so I get 3 "compartments"...
So with my trusty E6000 I glued the plate onto the top of the candle holder...
Then, using the same glue, i started gluing 2 and 2 cups together:
To keep them together while the glue dries, I used these clamps
...and then I glued the two sets together around the base of the candle holder, using the clamps to keep it all in place. I also put some glue underneath them to permanently glue them in place. Then the waiting game starts!
I let them stay like this overnight, and I could hardly wait to take the clamps off to see the final result!!! As I couldn't wait to start using it, I just took what I had in my purse and a few new bits and pieces I bought on my weekend trip to London, and arranged it randomly to see how it looked, and I must say: I've outdone myself this time!!! Ha, ha, I know, I'm a show off, but since I've never seen this done before, I found that I'm allowed to this time... ;-)
So now it can hold my brushes, eyeliners, mascara, lipliners, lipgloss and all that good stuff in the 4 bottom containers, and on top I can put the jewelery I can't be botheres to put in it's place at night, and random things like my EOS...
I love to repurpose stuff, and upcycle, and doing the environment a favour at the same time! The watering can you can see in the background is from IKEA, and I decoupaged the front, and on the back I stamped WATER and added the rest of the text : Save WATER shower together
