Hey guys !!!
Alrighty I have had some girls ask me how I made my nail polish rack , so I figured since Im making a new polish rack for my sister in law that id post it for all to see . =)
I had originally made my 1st nail polish rack the same way everyone else had done it , using a glue gun , some foam boards and fancy smancy duct tape . Now with that being the fast and cheap route it didn't hold up for too long . A couple of the shelving had fallen off Id fix them and they'd fall again .... lucky for me none of the polish bottles had any crazy breakage and I didn't get polish all over my floor . Unfortunately for some they were not so lucky in that and got polish on their carpet . So kicking myself for not going the wood route the 1st time like I had wanted to I did foam board and kinda wasting my time and some money .
But now I am haaaapy as can be with my polish rack and have not had any issues with it .
This is my rack hanging right now <3
Below I have photos of the rack I just made for my sister in law . I tried to take photos as I went so that you too can make this polish rack .
I went to a local hardware store near my house which was Home Depo and headed towards the lumbar and came across these hobby boards when I was making my polish rack .
I just had the guy there cut them down to the lengths that I wanted . ( double check all the pieces next to each other and make sure they are all the same before you leave )
There were 3 types of hobby wood I went with Poplar because it was the cheapest @ $1.84 a piece .
What I did here was take some scotch tape and used that to hold the pieces together while I was figuring out the spacing for each shelf . Then I took a pen and marked the side panels for where each self was .
The glue that I used was Gorilla wood glue ( you can also find this at the hardware store)
Make sure any glue that you pick up esspecially the gorilla glue that it says no foam . trust me you don't want that. hahah
What I did here was glue the outside panels together and used the same pieces of tape that I saved from the test run to hold the panels together .
I let that sit over night because I started this after I got off work so it was late , But letting the outside sit with out the inside panels was i think better for later . For when I go to do the shelves I don't have worry about being super careful.
Again scotch tape to help =)
Using my fingers to smooth out the glue
Double checking the spacing with the tallest polish bottle I have.
After letting it sit and dry for a couple hours I went out and ran some errands ;-)
Once the whole thing is good and dry I got some small nails to tack the shelves for another added security to the shelving .
For a little added touch to my sister in laws polish rack I added her name to the top.
TADA!!!!! painted and completed !
I hope that this was helpfull to you guys annnd if you happen to try this out let me know =)
have a greaaaaat day !!!
