Amazon Five-Shelf Stand

Hello everyone!

I decided it was time for me to invest in a shelf for my bathroom because my counter was overflowing with makeup products. I was searching Amazon for a inexpensive, but cute shelf and came across this one, sold by Furinno.

If you would like to see my video where I actually build it, click here.

The stand contains five shelves, which can hold fifteen pounds each. The directions do recommend that heavier items should be placed on the lower shelves. It also came with a cable tie and nail, to nail the stand on the wall. When I was reading the Amazon reviews, people said that when they place the stand on carpet, it isn’t too stable so the cable tie comes in handy. I was setting mine on the tile of my bathroom floor, so I didn’t need the cable tie.

I chose the beech shelves with the white poles/legs. They do have a variety of colors, so if you don’t like what I choose, there are more options for you. Also, note that the poles are plastic.


It was fairly easy to set up. If you do purchase this, be sure that you use the shelve with the four-holes as the bottom and not the others (only one has four-holes). It took me about twenty minutes. I will say, the holes on the shelves are circular, while the poles are more oval, so it was difficult trying to push and turn them in there, but I got it eventually.

Overall, I spend about $19 on this stand and I’m happy with what I received. It fits the look of my bathroom perfectly. The style of this stand is perfect for corners, so if you need to fill up a corner whether it’s in your living room or bathroom, this may be for you.

DIY: Magnetic Makeup Board

Hello everyone!

I’m going back to school in a month, so I’m trying to get all my dorm stuff ready. Of course, there are some things I want that are just too expensive. A magnetic make up board is one of them. So I figured, why not just make it myself? Here’s what you’re going to need:

-Picture Frame (TJ MAXX $12.99)

Picture Frame

-Sheet Metal (Lowe’s $7.00) Preferably same size as frame. Also, my Lowe’s told me they couldn’t cut it, but some do. Ask before you buy the cutters.

Sheet Metal + Cutters

-Cutters (Pictured Above) (Lowe’s $7.50 ) Make sure the gauge is the same gauge as your sheet metal. ONLY IF SHEET METAL NEEDS TO BE CUT!

-Fabric or craft paper/wrapping paper (Michaels $8.99 )


-Magnetic Strips (Target 4.99) Btw, Walmart doesn’t sell it.


-Glue Gun (Michaels 3.99)


-Tape/Measuring tool

First, if your sheet metal isn’t the same size as your frame, you need to cut it. Use a sharpie to outline the size of the frame, then cut it out. Be careful, because the edges of the sheet metal are very sharp and may hurt your hands. If you have hardware gloves or just an thick glove, definitely put those on.

After you get your sheet metal cut, test it out by placing it in the frame, like how you would put a picture. When it passes the test, place it on your fabric or craft paper/wrapping paper. I would recommend the fabric, because it’ll last you a longer time and you won’t have to worry about it tearing randomly, especially on the sharp edges of the sheet metal. Cut around the sheet metal, about 1in-2in away from the sheet metal. After you do that, use your tape and tape the fabric/paper to the back of the sheet metal.


Make sure the front is flat, (no air bubbles), and then put it in your frame. Now your board’s done!

The last step is the easiest. All you need to do is cut your magnetic strips to fit your makeup products. Heavier products may need more magnets. Then hot glue the sticky part of the magnet to your product, be sure to press down for at least 30 seconds. After that, it should just stay on your magnetic board!


I really love this! It makes everything look neater and I can find my favorite products much faster than when they were sitting on my vanity! I love that I can choose what it looks like, because it matched my dorm stuff! A lot of magnetic makeup boards are expensive, and most of the time you won’t find the style you’re looking for. Making it yourself gives you the chance to create the exact look you want!

Hope you guys enjoyed and let me know if you tried it!

DIY: Cute Mason Jars

Hello lovelies!

Sorry I’ve been super MIA for the last month and a half. With finals and moving, it was hard to keep up with the blog. But, now everything is settled down and without further ado, here’s how to make cute mason jars.

Mason jars are awesome! You can use them for so many things, such as using them as a cup, a vase, or just a cute piece of decor. But, clear jars aren’t as fun as jars that you decorated yourself. It’s pretty simple and you can get as creative as you want with mason jars. I prefer the simple look, but you can decorate it however you please.

What you’ll need:


  • Mason Jar. I bought mine from Michael’s for only $2.
  • Paint. I bought Lilac Mist from the brand Apple Barrel from Walmart for only $0.50! I usually buy acrylic paint for the jars.
  • Applicator. I used a foam applicator from Michael’s. I bought a set of 4 for $3. You can use a regular brush, I just like the foam.
  • Tray for paint. You need something to pour some paint into. I just used a paper plate. Anything will work.
  • Access to an oven.

Optional: Cord/Twine. I bought mine at Michael’s for $5.


Now, just start painting the jar. I hold the jar upside down with one hand inside and paint it that way first, (see the image below). Paint the bottom too, and then let it dry while sitting on the top.

Paining Jar

After that’s dry, add a second coat and do the same thing. When that dries, turn the jar right-side up and paint a third coat, while also paining the lid area.


When that’s dry, place it in the oven. The oven smooths everything out and gives the jar a more finished look. I kept it in the oven while it was preheating, which only took 10 minutes. I also placed my jar in an aluminum tray, so it wouldn’t be difficult to get out.

Be careful when you take it out and let it cool down. After that, you have a cute mason jar, the color you want! Another option is using twine to add a little detail.


Enjoy your mason jars! Let me know if you liked it!
