Hello! I wanted to share with you guys a craft project that my dad and I have been working on. As you may know, I'm a broke college graduate looking for a job this summer. I also have an expensive nail polish habit...and I needed one of those little nail polish racks to hold my bottles because they were just sitting in a Rubbermaid container sad because no one could appreciate them. However, I couldn't afford one of those $40 racks that you can buy online. So my dad and I set out on a mission to make my OWN rack for cheaper than we could buy one for. And we succeeded!
We used two pieces of wood total, both 8' long. We used a thinner one for the shelves and a thicker one for the top/bottoms and side pieces. We also attached a thin piece of plywood to the back to hold everything in. After everything was glued/nailed together, we spray painted it. It still needs a coat, but I couldn't wait to get it up and running to show you guys. I don't think it's as big as one of the racks you can get online, but it's a pretty nice size for me at least. This holds 70 bottles. I also only put the ones in that I use the most or that are my good polishes. I left all my crappy, cheapo polishes out. But even then... I have a pretty small collection for a nail blogger I think.
ANYWAY! Here are the pictures :) I've included some of my whole polishing set-up too in case you're curious.
I love it! I feel like a real live blogger now ;)
Total price for my homemade polish rack: About $11 :)
Have a lovely night,
