more project updates- almost done!

Hi Kids!
I was able to accomplish a lot since my last post! With the exception of a board to cap off the right side of my polish shelves, they are, for all intents and purposes,- finished! I have to say that trimming them out became a project of epic proportions. In lieu of purchasing trim, I decided to make my own from a roll-up bamboo shade I got from the clearance cart at Lowe's for $5. Being a bleached Birch, the slats were all wrong for my studio colors, so I stained and sealed them a rich, warm Mahogany. When dry, I cut, glued and nailed pieces to my polish shelves. At each shelf intersection, 18 total, I added  bronze medallions that I hand embellished with glitter and gold holo sequins. These medallions were part of a belt in their previous life.

Ignore the flying outlet strip- I just finished painting the table black and had to temporarily secure it up and away. When the weather is warm enough to leave a window open overnight, my table will have 2 silk paintings from India, sequins and glitter embedded under a 2 part resin finish. Until then, I'll be making due with a couple of coats of latex gloss.



























I haven't decided on "pulls" for my plate drawers yet, so I'll be living without them for a while until I can think of something.
















With a couple of more things to secure and some paint, the project will be finished. Let's hope I don't come up with any more projects...my hands and nails haven't looked this bad in 15 years!

I love the tiling that you used to trim the sheves too.

Wow! You've put so much time into this! The bamboo shade trim kind of looks like tiny brickwork because of the stain. :)

this is so awesome! That was smart to use the bamboo blind for trim - the colour peeking out behind the bamboo matches your belt piece medallions. love that you can see all your polish and that your konad plates are easily viewable.

I always trash my nails and hands when I do around the house projects. Your nail desings and the effort you put into them is always inspiring and impressive.

My husband can never, ever say I have too many polishes!  The way you decorated the shelves is really pretty - simple, but it gets the point across.

This is very similar to my own plans for a polish room. However, I hadn't thought of anything like that for my stamping plates! I think my current plan was to have small baggies with holes punched in them to hang the plates. 

It's looking fantastic, and thank you so much for sharing!

Zara Petkovic said...

I was just brainstorming some polish-storage ideas last night ... nothing near as intense as yours, though! This is AWESOME. Well done.

You put so much work into the shelf but then zip tied your power strip so it dangles infront of the polish?
