Affordable makeup storage from Ikea

Hi everyone!! I hope you all are having an awesome week so far. I wanted to show you today an affordable makeup storage from Ikea!! The hubs and I really love Ikea, we could seriously spend hours in there just wondering around and imagining how we could decorate our future home together. Two weekends ago, I saw this nifty makeup tray by the storage area at Ikea. I’m pretty sure it’s not a new thing but I’ve just noticed it. I literally stood there for 20 minutes debating if I needed it. As you can see, I gave in….

Ikea makeup tray

I’ve just put a bunch of makeup in the tray to show you what it looks like. I haven’t decided how I will be using my tray yet as I’m still in the process of designing my blog room. Most likely this will sit on top of my desk with products that are waiting to be trialed/tested.

This tray is called Godmorgon and is available at Ikea for $19.95. The plastic is very thick and feels quite durable. The area where I placed all my lip glosses, moves in a 90 degree angle and can be removed if you find it annoying. The only downside to this tray is that if you leave the swivel compartment attached, it really limits how much makeup you can store underneath and it can get a bit tricky to reach for items in there.

Has anyone seen this before or am I last as usual?

Purchased with my own money.

    I haven’t because Ikea is a bit of a distance so maybe I’m last. But I love being organized and love how neat this is and how you can see everything. I don’t wear much makeup but I have it all in a basket and I’m always sifting through to find stuff. This is so much better. I may have to make a trip to Ikea.

      Hi! I know the feeling. Some of my everyday makeup I store in my makeup bag and I always have trouble finding stuff. This makes everything look neat and tidy.

    Thanks heaps for sharing this – I’ve been looking for an affordable solution, and I was just at Ikea last week and didn’t even see it – that’s the problem with Ikea, so many things to look at, that you miss so much, and I usually leave with other things than what I had originally in mind. Will definitely have to look for it when I’m there next!

      Hey Karina! That happens to me all the time!! Everything is so affordable at Ikea and it’s only until I go to pay for my stuff, I realise I’ve bought so much random things.

    What a great find. I’ve never seen this on my ikea trips. I like your idea of using it for trial products etc.

    Hey I got mine a couple of years ago, I love it! Mine lives in the top drawer of my dresser. Under the swivel tray I keep things that I don’t use very often otherwise yes, it is a bit annoying to get under there.

      Oh yeh, that would be quite difficult to get things out especially if you have it in your drawer. Would be cool if Ikea started stocking different types of makeup drawers or trays.

    I like it, and it’s so cheap! (compared to places like HSW etc).
    I don’t go to Ikea much but I think there will be a trip there soon for me :)

    Don’t worry I am probably the last to know. I go to Ikea every now and then but because it’s so far I would only go if there was a sale or something I really needed. Thanks for sharing, it looks so cool with all the make up organised so neatly.

      I live fairly close to Ikea so lucky in a way I can go every weekend. I also like eating lunch there too, feels so cheap so I end up buying 2 meals for myself.

    This looks like a great product, that I could definitely use for storing my makeup! I’ve not seen it before so I will have to look for it next time in IKEA, I’m just hoping that the UK stores will stock it as we don’t always get the same stuff as you guys. xx
