So I've been packing this silly box I had around for like a year.  I've known what I was going to do with it the whole time, but I just hadn't got around to it.  I finally got the motivation to make it up into the organizer that it was supposed to be! 

Now I had bought a box of chocolate bars forever ago (at Costco) for the guys I work with.  Once I had emptied it I thought about how perfect it would have been as an organizer!    I cut out pictures from magazines today (pictures to do with beauty) and then I Mod Podged them to the box.  It isn't quite the look I was going for, as I had a limited amount of magazines to choose from, but overall I think it did a pretty good job!  The whole project was super cheap, and I think I'm going to love it.  I'll post the pictures below.  Let me know what you guys think!

I think this is going to be so much easier while getting ready!  I won't have to sift through my makeup bag!  Oh, and the liner/shelving... yes... its duct tape!  I tried painting it with nail polish, but all that did was make a mess and gave me a headache!  If you want to be inventive you can think my duct tape job as "Hillbilly Chrome"! (Has kind of a nice ring to it eh?!?)
