DIY Nail Polish Rack

Hello, Loves!
If you are anything like me, (which I know SEVERAL of you are), then you LOVE to collect nail polishes. I have so many polishes that I don't even know what to do with myself. So I have been in need for a nail polish rack. I have so many polishes that go unused because they are all stored in a bin, and the ones aaaallll the way in the back never get any lovin. I have been on the hunt for a decently priced nail polish rack, but I am too cheap (or thrifty, rather) to spend $40.00 on one. I've even checked ebay and amazon, and there is nothing that ever really catches my eye. SO...I decided to make my own. =)

AFTER

This rack holds 36 OPI & China Glaze polishes. Not too shabby, huh? If you have a lot of smaller polishes, like Essie, then it will definitely hold a LOT more! Total, I spent about $6! Definitely beats $40.00, and I had so much fun putting it together! I had Hello Kitty ribbon lying around at home (and I am OBSESSED with HK), so I was able to spruce it up and add my own touches to this project. Plus, the ribbon helped hide the imperfections. ;) This was a complete test run and to be honest, I had no idea how this was gonna turn out. I kinda just thought of ideas as I went. Not bad for a trial run, huh?

I have one more rack to put together, so if you want to know how I did this, let me know in the comments below, and I can definitely do that. =D I am SO not an artsy fartsy person, but I'd like to think that I did an O.K. job. LOL!

Hope you enjoyed my little DIY project! See you in my next post! =D
