DIY - Nail Polish Rack

I've accumilated quite a few nail polishes over the years and after seeing many posts on nail polish racks I figure why not make one myself.  So the bf and I headed to Lowe's on Sunday morning and picked up the necessary items.  We purchased the pre-cut wood, small nails, primer for spray paint, and a spray paint bottle in the color pink.  We spent less than $20!!!  Now that's a bargain. 

Step 1: Get all your pieces together, measure them to your liking.  I wanted 4 shelves to fit my polishes and the bottom one to fit hand lotions, acetone, cotton balls, and other misc. items.

Step 2:  Once you've taken your measurements, place the nails and secure.  

Step 3: All done nailing and assembling the nail polish rack. 

Step 4:  Spray paint or paint to your liking. 

Step 5: Set up a location where you want your rack to be placed.  Mine is on top of my vanity.

Closer look of my polishes.

This was fairly easy to build.  There are plenty of youtube videos that show you step by step how to make one and what tools you need but most that I saw were using cardboard and gluing the pieces together.  That doesn't seem long lasting to me so I wanted to use wood.  Hope you guys found this a bit helpful and if you are looking into purchasing a nail polish rack, don't even bother... just make your own.  I guarantee that you will like it 10x better and enjoy building it and seeing the final results.
