A Place for My Pretty Essentials

I'm too embarrased to tell you how long I've wanted to do this project, and how little time it actually took to get it done. I don't know why I put it off for so long because I love the end result. I've always wanted to have a place in my bathroom for fun little glass jars with q-tips, cotton balls, and all those other little white things we use daily.  Finally, it's done.
Sadly, I do not have an actual before picture, but thanks to photoshop, I can show you what it looked like anyway.
And here it is after I added those three tiny shelves. Now I have a place to put all those fun little items in cute Ikea jars I've had for about three years.

Not counting the paint-drying time, this project took me a total of about 30 minutes. Not joking. Plus, since I already had all of the materials and paint, I didn't have to spend a penny for this project! That's my favorite kind!

Now, does anyone have any ideas about what to do with my curling iron, flat iron, and hair dryer?

So pretty, Amber. I love simple and clean. Makes it a peaceful little place to brush your teeth :)

Love it! And as far as your hair dryer and straightener? Would a nice decorative basket hanging off the wall look good in your space? You could even hang a hand towel off the front?
