Mint Week: Make Up Table Storage

8/06/2013 05:03:00 pm

Ich wusste, dass ich unbedingt mintfarbene Aufbewahrung für meinen Schminktisch wollte - aber woher nehmen, wenn nicht stehlen? Da muss man also wieder selber ran. Zuerst habe ich Holzbehälter gesammelt, die mir geeignet schienen: eine Zettelbox, ein hölzernes Tablett sowie ein kleines Element von IKEA.

I knew that I really wanted mint coloured storage elements for my make up table - but couldn't find anything suitable. Of course, that's the right time to get crafty. So, I collected wooden boxes that I thought to be suitable: a note box, a wooden tray as well as a storage element from IKEA.

Zuerst alle Teile grundieren, dann mit mintfarbener Farbe (derselben wie vom Stuhl!) mehrmals streichen.

Firstly, prime all the items, then paint several coats with a mint paint (the same I used on the chair!).

So sehen die neuen Elemente auf dem Schminktisch aus - noch ziemlich leer...

This is how the new storage elements look on the make up table - quite empty...

...und jetzt ziemlich voll. Eine perfekte Methode, um herumliegendes wieder schön und nützlich zu machen!

...and now pretty full with things. A perfect way to turn boxes that lay around into something pretty and useful!
