MCT 26th Release Blog Hop: Makeup Brush Makeover

by Veronica

Welcome to the Release Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Tracy's blog, you're on the right road. If not, mosey on over to Emma's blog to start from the beginning. Trust me, you DON'T want to miss anything!

If you're like me, you tend to not give yourself enough time to get ready. I always think I need about 15 minutes less than I actually do - must be a gift of mine. When I'm running behind schedule (as in, everyday), it's nice to have the things I need right where I need them.

But I don't like a lot of clutter on my counter tops. That's where this beauty comes in.


This makeup brush holder is simply a glass candlestick (you can find one for $1 at your local thrift or dollar store) glued to a gravy jar. Add a little paint to the candlestick and a cute new 'label' to the jar and voila!

I used Build A Chevy Background for my label and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Ranger Distress Ink  and my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool. A satin, Tiffany Blue ribbon finishes the look nicely.

Since my gravy jar was taller than the handles of my brushes, I added little wood circles to the bottom of the jar to raise the brushes up.

Confession Time: This brush holder is a brand new addition to my bathroom, but sadly, the gravy jar is not. I've actually stored my brushes in the gravy jar (with the Heinz label still attached) for several weeks. I think The Hubs will be pleasantly surprised to find this new, much more stylish brush holder in the bathroom this morning!
