We FINALLY made this shelf just for our nail polish. It was in a sad box thing all neglected and hard to get to. Upsetting. It took us a while to finally buy all the wood and then actually make the project but it is done! And now one of our walls will forever be known as the "Nail Polish Wall." And thank goodness there is still room for nail polish because you know we aren't going to stop buying it.
To make this exact You will need:
a piece of flat wood- ours is 2'x3'
two pieces of wood- 2.5"x.75"x3'
8 quarter round pieces- each 22.5" long
9 pieces of craft wood- 22.5" long
A drill will make hanging the shelf 713984 times easier
Gorilla Glue- Fast Drying is best
I put one piece of craft wood on the end of the large piece of wood and put a mark every four inches from there. Put the same marks on both sides of the large piece of wood.
Draw lines to connect the marks from both sides of the wood.
Take a wet cloth and dampen the surface where you will be putting the Gorilla Glue. In this case, dampen the 3' edge of the flat piece of wood and also dampen the shorter side of the 2.5"x.75" wood. Place the glue on one of the surfaces- a small amount will work because the glue grows a whoooooole lot.
Repeat the dampening and glueing process to each piece of quarter round. Place the edge of the quarter round right up against the lines you drew earlier.
I skipped one of the lines to be able to put larger things on that shelf. Things like nail polish remover. There will not be a piece of quarter round under the last shelf. You can see the Gorilla Glue already puffing out of places.
Glue each piece of craft wood on top of the quarter round pieces. They will sit on top of the quarter round and touch the flat piece of wood.
Spray paint that bad boy whatever color(s) you like. We had minimal amounts of many different colors so we just went crazy and used everything we had hence, the accidental rainbow effect. But, whatevs- it totally works in the craft/blog room.
Drill holes in the back of the shelf and screw it into the wall- preferably into a stud. We used a stud finder.
Fill it up with your nail polishes! And all of your almost empty Cutex nail polish removers. If you are feeling really crazy you can organize all the colors. I did this and let's just say I spent way more time organizing nail polish than I would ever care to again- CASEY YOU BETTER PUT THE COLORS BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM.
No we do not NEED any more nail polish BUT, what colors would you suggest we get to add to the collection? (We are always up to buy new awesome nail polish colors.)
