I am crazy in love with nail polish and my obsession has left me with a lack of space and the need for a Nail Polish Rack. After a while I just got tired of putting all of my polishes in the tub I'd been keeping them in. I searched sites like Amazon to find a nail polish rack that I liked, but I didn't find one that I thought was worth buying. Nothing seemed sturdy enough and nothing really fit my taste. So, I did the next best thing, I went to google and searched for a DIY Nail Polish Rack. Lucky for me I came across one of my favorite beauty vloggers, Dulce Candy's DIY. I loved how she constructed her Nail Polish Rack and decided to try my hand at my own. I'm so pleased with how it turned out and I'm sharing with you how to make your own below.
What You'll Need:
10 - 2.5" x 2" FT boards
2 - 2.5" x 36" boards
1 - 24.5" x 36" back board (I used ply board)
1 - 2 Cans of Ultra Cover Gloss (Painter's Touch) white spray paint (color of your choice)
Hot Glue Gun
Here's What to Do:
First take your ruler and starting from the bottom of the board draw a straight line around 3.75 - 4 inches above the bottom. Continue drawing lines around four inches apart.
Next using your hot glue, attach your 2.5" x 2" boards to the back board. Do this quickly because the glue will dry quick.
When you're done gluing the base boards, take your 2 2.5" x 36" side boards and attach them with hot glue using the same method from above.
(That's Terry *The BF* and Benjamin *My Pup* helping me out)
When you are done, apply gorilla glue to the top and bottom of each of the base boards for extra reinforcement.
When you have completed gluing your boards you are basically done. Now all you need to do is spray paint your Nail Polish Rack. This project took me two days to complete. I took one day to construct it and one day to paint it.
***Tip*** - If you live in an apartment like myself, the paint smell may take a while to go away. Get some peppermint oil and put in on cotton balls. Place a cotton ball on the end of of each row. This will help the paint smell go away.
This is the final product and I am very pleased with the results! I made my nail polish rack bigger than it needed to be. I have four extra rows to fill and I'm sure they will be full in no time. I hope you all enjoyed this DIY and I hope it was helpful☺.
