I've been seeing cute little nail polish racks around the blogs and have had my mind on it as I go around to tag sales on the weekends. Believe it or not I found the perfect thing in this little white wicker wall hanging. I'm not sure what it was initially but it's perfect for what I needed. I gave it a good coat of glossy white spray paint.
The biggest challenge with using this little rack for nail polish was that the wicker basket was not level and the little bottles were not straight when I put them in it. See the little bottles are crooked here?
I knew that putting all the little nail polish bottles in there and if they were all crooked it would bother me so I found a solution. I painted the wooden paint sticks white also and cut them with my sons big miter saw.. that thing was a little scary at first and then WOW... the power to cut is amazing. It makes me want to do a big wood project like a little garden cottage. That's dreaming, I think, but it's good to dream, right?
And glued them onto the base...
And now the little nail polish bottles are straight.
See? They are all perfectly straight. The picture is crooked though. Oops...
See all the little boards I cut and put in? I'm so pleased that I learned how to work the big miter saw, too.
I love looking at all the little colorful bottles and that they are neat and all in one place (sort of - I do have some rejects in a small plastic container.)
Hope everyone is having a great week. Weather here in Connecticut is getting downright cool!
