My Ikea Hack – Shoe Shelves to Hair Product Organizer

I just got a cute new hairdo that takes more ‘product’ than the leave-in conditioner and elastic band I have been using lately. My flatiron, curling irons and hair dryer have been a tangled mess for lack of better storage. SO…I hacked (I use the term loosely) an ikea shoe cabinet t fit my needs. Eventually, my awesome neighbor will be commissioned to build a more permanent cabinet there, but until then..here’s my solution.

 

 

 

Ikea Shoe Cabinet – mostly matches the bathroom cabinets. Hair Dryer In the top drawer, plugged into the power strip below. Second drawer has the power strip attached with Command Strips Picture Hanging tabs. Because the drawers are plastic I got a bread pan for sub sandwiches and bent the sides around so it would fit in the drawer. The grooves provide the perfect channels for the irons. No worry of melting the plastic. The power strip lets me keep them plugged in all the time (they all have power switches).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bottom drawer is super easy access of all my hair products. So far, this is working out great and it is giving me some fun design ideas for the ‘real thing’ that will come eventually.

I haven’t known exactly what I wanted, but this is close!!

 

 

And, in case you wondered…here’s the new ‘do.

It’s actually an old ‘do revisited, but it’s new again this year.

    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little
    livelier.
