Waiter: There's A Hair In My Soup!

As a creative person if I can find a use for something I'll keep it and make something from it - I absolutely hate throwing things away. My room is my personal space, a place where I can just chill out and have peace and quiet (we all need a bit of that,don't we?),so I like to put my own little touches to it!

As weird as this looks, I store my make-up brushes (not that I have many) in a old soup can. Heinz celebrated their 100th year as a company and for a limited time sold their soups with the old label design. I really liked the style of it and I was originally collecting them to grow some plants (does that make me sound old?) but in the end I decided to use one as a brush holder. 

It shows you don't have to spend a lot on storage and your doing your bit for the environment by recycling. I just sealed the outside with some PVA glue to give it a glossy finish and its really easy to clean if you need to. 

How does everyone store their brushes / make-up? Let me know down in the comments section. Hope everyone is having a great day. x
