New polish shelves

Hey Kids!
Since I won't be posting manis while I'm in construction mode, I'll be posting my progress with the new mani station. First up, my new polish shelves. The empty area on the right will be home for all my stamping polishes. The shelves will look much better once they're trimmed out, which I'll do at the end of construction.

Today, I will be starting the most complicated part of the project- building and installing my work-table. The table itself is easy- construction under the table is what's going to be time consuming and tricky. I'm incorporating the way my table is supported with the need for storage using two 46" high stereo speakers my husband was going to throw out. It would be much easier to build with all new materials, however, I love the rewards of repurposing something that was destined for the landfill. It's a passion of mine, and one that never fails to give me a sense of pride and accomplishment.

This looks so awesome!! The shelves and the color-arranged polish!

And it's great that you reuse stuff...solid waste disposal is such a huge problem today, and every little bit that doesn't end up in a landfill or in the ocean somewhere helps.
Yeahh captain planet moment. :D

Oooh! That's a bit like what I am trying to plan out for my nail polish room! How totally awesome and impressive! Since I've got so many critters that might knock into them, I'm planning to slap a small bar across the front or something to make sure the polish can't get knocked down. And big yay for recycling!

Oh my goddd, I love your set up! Totally drool-worthy.

Crystal Marie said...

I can only hope to gather that many polishes some day :-) But with the rate I'm at...I may just get there!
Gorgeous collection!!!
New to your blog, saw this photo on someone else's blog and had to see it!

I love when people repurpose things! I watch this show called Junk Raiders where they use "trash" and design entire homes with it!
Its amazing! If only more people did this, we would have smaller landfills!
This is a fabulous idea! I love it!
