I never really thought about building something to hold my wife’s makeup “stuff” until I saw her digging through cases and drawers to get to the implements and concoctions. I had some scraps and so created a basic box structure to hold (what I thought) were those items.
As we know the first rendition of a new idea isn’t the greatest, so I’ll just skip over that part and move on to what the current project is – the next version.
The basic idea I found is that you need: 1. a few shelves for the bottles, lotions, and tubes of stuff. 2. holders for their pencils, brushes, and other stick based products 3. a space to hold everything else that you didn’t think of.
Rendition 1 had a drawer – that didn’t get used much. The space is better served in the well of the box. That led me to work on developing this version:
Rough pict overview:
In the picture, you can see a block with holes for the brushes, etc. What I didn’t think of was that the single line of holders for the brushes, etc. would not be sufficient. I’ve had to re-think that design. I’ve leaned towards a double row and a bit higher: per daughter’s assessment – the brushes need to be high enough to reach close to their base instead of at the tip level.
Pause for now until I can get the pencil and stuff holders and such done.
