I've decided that I'm going to do a series. It's going to be called Tutorial Tuesdays and I'm SOOO excited! The other week I showed you how to make a scarf ladder. You can see that tutorial HERE.
This week, I had another project that I wanted to tackle that I have been putting off for way too long. It's a nail polish display:) This was another pretty simply project (which I prefer and so does my husband) so it only took a little bit to complete.
The supplies you will need are:
- long thin nails (we honestly just used nails we had on hand)
- A small level
|We bought three of these|
|and two of these|
I am going to have two displays built so that's why we bought extra material :) I have just a few too many bottles of nail polish to fit in just one lol.
We used the backer board as the guide.
- The top and bottom boards are 12" across.
- The sides are 22 1/2"
- Each shelf is 10 1/2" across
- My shelves are spaced at few different sizes because I have different heights of nail polish. The top shelf is 4 1/2" tall, the next one is 3 1/2" and then the last three are all 4" a part.
I actually painted my boards the night before so it was quicker to assemble in the morning. I did white as my backer and black for my frame and shelves. You can of course paint your nail polish rack whatever color you would like :) *See note below about painting

|Pieces drying after being repainted. See note below.|
|Beginning of the frame being built|
|The Mr. pre-drilled all the holes and then used small nails to assemble the frame|
|More assembly of the frame|
|Figuring out placement again before nailing each shelf in|
|He put two nails in for each shelf on both sides to|
make sure the shelf was secure and could hold weight.
|Test run to make sure the heights are right and then it|
was time to do all the last minute touch ups.
|Here it is! Getting all filled up :)|
*I have to say after it was all put together I wouldn't have painted everything before the cuts were made.The backer boards are fine but I'd wait on the rest until they are cut. I had a lot of touching up to do and sanding once the boards were cut to size. I'd cut, paint, then assemble next time :)
Here's the finished product :) I absolutely LOVE it and it makes it so much easier to see all the colors I have. It will be even nicer when the Mr. finishes my other display so I don't have to double them up!!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please leave some love, feedback or questions down in the comments!!!
