Turn your spice rack into a makeup brush holder

I’ve got the easiest and fun tutorial for you today on how to turn a spice rack into a makeup brush holder!  I would like to be more organized but I just don’t have a system other then shoving items back in a drawer. So when I saw this spice rack at the thrift store, I realized it could very easily be turned into a brush holder!

This is what the spice rack looked like before, it must have housed some small gourmet spices, too bad they weren’t still in there.

First I grabbed a soft damp cloth and wiped it clean.  Since the wood was so smooth I did not need to sand. I simply spray painted it using Gloss Berry Pink General Purpose Spray Paint which has the paint and primer in 1.   I gave it 2 coats and it was done, easy peasy!

Now I’m on the hunt for all sorts of spice racks in different sizes. A small spice rack would be perfect for storing all your nail polish or beads, give it a nice colorful finish and you have a fun addition to any room.
