Lemony fresh style: Energize a makeup brush holder with washi tape

Decorative makeup brush holders give a bathroom counter or vanity table the look and feel of a professional makeup studio. These holders made with washi tape take things a step further and add a punch of personality to the entire room. Go with the lemon and yellow scheme shown here for a style that's zesty or pick out three different colors for your own customized creation.
Authentic washi tape is a Japanese innovation made with washi paper. The material is thin yet strong, so it can hold up to household use but comes off easily without leaving any residue. That way, if you ever outgrow the look of this brush holder, it takes no effort to peel off the tape and reapply new colors and patterns.
