DIY Nail Polish Shelf


DIY Nail Polish Shelf Alderberry Hill 3 thumb DIY Nail Polish Shelf

My daughter is a nail polish collector, she loves to paint designs on her nails and mine too!

For her birthday she asked for a nail polish shelf so my husband built one.

Doesn’t it look great!

She is so pleased with it!

Here’s a couple of diagram’s to show how the wood was cut and assembled so you can make one too – not just for nail polish ya know! This shelf can hold a lot of other things too…how about craft supplies, all lined off with pretty jars full of glitter and buttons!

This shelf can be built and painted for under $100.

It is quite large, you can alter the height so there are not as many shelves but since we used a 48 x 48 plywood sheet we wanted it to be 4’ in height – as you can see she has a lot of nail polish and I’m sure her collection will grow!

  5. This is great! Just curious, what kind of fasteners did you use? Just curious the size and type you used for each part. I would love to make one for my daughter!

  6. I love your shelf! It would be perfect for “boy stuff’ too, like Hotweels and Lego… thanks for the fantastic idea!

  9. This is a fantastic project! Your daughter is so talented with nail art, I imagine she’s going to get quite a lot of use out of this. It would be neat for organizing essential oils or spices, too.

  10. This looks terrific. Thank you for the posting the plans. I need one of these for my daughter. We got her a huge collection of nail polish for Christmas.

  11. What a cool idea. I just threw out about 300 bottles of nail polish a few days ago. They just sat in a closet and were to hard to get to. This would have saved the day. I would love it if you would share this at my link party.

  16. I’ll never have nearly enough nail polish to justify a shelf like that, although I bet it would be great for lots of things. I love the way it looks with all the nail polish on it, though! So cute!
