My daughter has many hair ribbons, headbands, ponytail holders and more for her hair accessories. I have always kept them in her top dresser drawer, but she is getting older and likes to choose her own headband. When I found this coffee cup holder at Goodwill (for under $2), I knew it would be perfect. My blogging friends and I are sharing under $20 thrift store makeovers today. I can’t wait to see what everyone found and created.

My coffee cup holder had a strong smoke odor to it so I did some googling of how to get rid of smoke smell because I wasn’t sure. I used a mixture of water and vinegar and it did the trick. Once the coffee cup holder was ready to be painted, I decided to try something new. Spray painting thrift store finds is something I love to do. The weather is finally going to be warm enough to spray paint.

Let’s Create a DIY Girls Hair Accessories Organizer

Pink is my daughters favorite color and her room is just filled with shades of pink. This is going to sit on the top of her Dress Up Storage next to her Believe in Magic Unicorn Sign . It will look great with all the colorful headbands one it.

The fun thing about repurposing the coffee cup holder is this can hold ponytail holders, baby headbands or work for adults. It’s really something anyone can use to organize items that can hang.

On the top of the coffee cup holder was a round ball and I thought maybe it was screwed in the top, but I found out it wasn’t. It broke off when I tried to unscrew it so before painting I had to sand the top down for a smooth surface.

I covered an area and applied the spray paint. The spray paint didn’t cover all that well and I realized the pink was not going to match her room at all. Instead of it complementing her pink walls it was going to clash with them.

I decided to paint it with Sherwin Williams Memorable Rose just like her step stool.. It was perfect!

Then I decided to decorate it. Pretty in pink is great, but it needed a little something else. Together my daughter and I looked at images in Cricut Design Space™ and I let her choose what she would like on her hair accessories holder. Having a Cricut allows me to customize and personalize all of my kids stuff which is awesome! Who needs store bought, when you can make what you want?

She went with her favorite unicorn, just like her stool. Since the unicorns were going to be small, I didn’t want to add all those tiny details. So I did white unicorns with a pink heart.

My daughter loved it and told me to put it in her room, right away. It’s the perfect size for her and the headbands fit great. Now she can get any headband she wants. She went with the Easter one today.
