Ikea SKURAR Plant Pots as Makeup Brush Holders


On a recent trip to Ikea I picked up three £2 Skurar Plant Pots (don't worry if you don't live near an Ikea - here's a £1.22 eBay alternative!) basically because they were pretty! 

I then had a lightbulb moment of what if I store my makeup brushes in them! 

As you can see this totally works and is a perfect solution for my large makeup brush collection. The only drawback is that the plant pots are quite tall, taller than my makeup brushes at least, meaning when I put my brushes into the pot they could hardly be seen.

 However this problem is easily solved by using long grain dried rice in the bottom of each plant pot, so that the brushes stand up nice and high, and also separated.


You may want to ignore my mostly dirty brushes but I think it turned out quite well! 

I filled both pots half way with dried rice and then placed in the brushes. As you can see one holder is for eye brushes and the other is for face brushes. 

As for the SKURAR plant pots I really do love them. They are metal, meaning they are nice and strong and the cutout lace detail is a lovely touch. My alternative eBay find plant pots here are very similar indeed but made of plastic FYI - but still it beats walking around Ikea for hours just for plant pots, or a fab solution if your nearest Ikea store is 1242 miles away!

You could also use these plant pots to store sharpies and other bits of stationary. Really great for budget desk storage whilst still keeping it pretty! 

Fee xo.
