DIY Nail Polish Rack

Today I made a DIY nail polish rack that holds about 100+ nail polishes. I got the idea from a youtube guru, Nicole Guerriero and decided to make one since it looked so easy! And it is! The hardest part was the cutting. The edges weren’t that straight but once I put duct tape over it, it was alright. Check it out below. I’m very proud of it!

Here is all you need to make your own nail polish rack:
3 foam boards
glue gun with glue
X-acto knife
ruler
duct tape

I got the boards at Dollar Tree and the rest from Wal Mart.

Step 1: Draw a line every 4 1/2 inches on one of your board. Draw with a ruler to make a single line. This is the back of the rack and where we will place the shelves. Put that aside.

Step 2: Draw a line every 2 inches on the second board. Again, connect the two sides with a ruler. This will be your shelf that sticks out. Mark it to make seven shelves.

Step 3: After you marked the 2 1/2 inches for the shelves, on the same board, this time mark 1 inch and make seven of those. Again, connect the lines on both sides. Those 1 inch lines will be a barrier for the shelves.

Step 4: On the third board, draw (two) 2 1/2 inches on the long, vertical side. This will be the sides of your board.

Step 5: Cut out all the lines you drew with the knife. You will have 7 shelves, 7 barriers, 2 sides, and one board.

Step 6: Hot glue the 7 shelves on to the lines you first drew on the back board. Then glue the 1-inch piece on top of the shelves. If you decide to decorate yours with duct tape, do that first and then glue it on.

Step 7: Glue the two sides.

There you have it! An awesome nail polish rack for your collection. đŸ™‚
