Brush Storage: Suck It!
Living in a small apartment has its pros and cons. Pro? It’s cheap. Con? There’s just not a lot of space. Flat surfaces are in limited supply, so if you need a place to put something, you have to get a little creative. As much as I’d love to DIY myself a little brush holder with colourful beads and girly goodness, the standard “put your brushes in a cup” solution just won’t work here. So what’s a girl to do?
She can just suck it. With suction cups, of course.
All along the side of our rather giant-sized bathroom mirror are four suction-cup solutions: three toothbrush holders ($3.99 @ Kohl’s), and one kitchen brush holder up at the top (purchased at Garden Ridge). The top brush holder was just the right size to hold my beefy ceramic hairbrush without squishing the bristles. The top toothbrush holder houses all my eye brushes, and the next one down is all face brushes. The bottom one is actually for the toothbrush, along with other random things like hair sticks (which double as mixing sticks for foundation).
What if you don’t have a giant mirror to work with? As long as you’ve got wall space for a picture frame, you’re still good to go! Just pick out a nice frame, put in a photo or a creative collage to match the decor of your bathroom or bedroom, and stick your suction solutions on there. Easy peasy!
