Once you have mastered our DIY bedroom ideas you can make the most of your space by organizing dressing tables properly. Here are some creative tips on how you can arrange your accessories and beauty products. No matter how small your space is there are techniques to fitting everything in. Not only are these convenient strategies to keep your living space neat, they also add style to your room.


Make-up is usually one of the main products that women store in their dressers. It is helpful to create a space where your make-up is well-organized and easy to access. One suggestion is to make a magnetic board by sticking magnetic strips inside a frame as well as behind each of your make-up items. Once you have mounted the frame next to your dresser you will have a convenient place to store your make-up. An attractive and unique way to organise your make-up and accessories is to use a cup and saucer. You can place make-up brushers in the cup and hang earrings off its edges. If you place the saucer underneath the cup it creates another storage area for bracelets and make-up. You can also use jars to organize your space.

A neat jewellery storage area where everything has its place also allows you to check that none of your jewellery is missing. There are plenty of ways to organize your jewellery. Drawer inserts have useful compartments so you can sort your jewellery by type.

You can also use cutlery holders or ice-cube trays to separate your accessories. You can create extra space by making a wall organizer and hanging it next to your dressing table. Find a cheap second hand shallow cabinet and use paint to create a stylish exterior. Next line the interior with velvet and add hooks to hang your jewellery on. You will need to insert dividers that create space for earrings.


Another idea is to fill a bottle with sand and hang bracelets on it. You could also use a paper towel holder. If each one of your necklaces has its own spot it prevents them from tangling. This strategy also makes it easy to see each piece of jewellery so that it is easy to select an item that best matches your outfit. You can place hooks on the wall above your table to create a space for showcasing your necklaces. You can use a paint pallet to create an interesting storage area. To maximise the space, add a small bowel and cup to the pallet.
