DIY Beauty Organizer

Happy Friday friends!  As we are nearing ever closer to the big day (who's ready? yikes!!) I continue to share gift build projects as part of the Handbuilt Holiday series with Ana White.  Today we are bringing you this beautiful and extremely functional organizer:

It's a beauty organizer, a desk organizer, a desktop vanity, makeup organizer - you decide but either way it can be made entirely from scrap wood and takes no time to build.

Ana White and I have shared 9 gift builds so far this series.  As we near the last few weeks the builds will become smaller and more simple because we know you're tight on time but that doesn't mean you can't make an amazing gift from wood!

What little girl wouldn't want this bright and cheery beauty organizer to corral all her products and hair supplies?

Ana designed this organizer using standard 3/4" stock because it's easily accessible for most diy'ers however this project could also be done in 1/2" plywood and work just as well.

Space for everything and everything in it's space!

With a project like this that's small and easy to assemble I couldn't build just one.  I made 3 all from scrap wood (and there are 2 more waiting to be painted!) thanks to Ana's amazing plans.

The drawer is not actually attached to the organizer but rests on the surface.  Be sure to add felts onto the underside for smooth gliding:

Ana has the plans here, get them now and start building!  I've decided to keep the blue organizer for my desk

It's perfect for working folders, notebooks, pens, markers and all the accessories:

I'm sure you have someone on your list this year who would love to receive this organizer.  In fact you probably have multiple people so get Ana's plans here and start building!
