DIY Hanging Nail Polish Holder Featuring Shape Tape™ Scalloped Designs
My wife owns a ton of nail polish. When I say a ton, I mean a TON! She had it stored in containers, bags, and drawers in our bedroom. It was always getting in the way, and way too accesbile for our kiddos. We needed a proper place to store it. A place that could be designated for nail polish and nothing else. That’s when she asked me if I could design and build her a nail polish holder.
The hanging nail polish holder would need to be in the form of shelves, in order to utilize space most efficiently, so I came up with a neat little shelving system that could mount on our bedroom wall and fit in nicely with the existing décor.
I had some leftover 2×4’s and some 1/4″ plywood in my workshop from another project that I decided to use. That being said, it’s kind of difficult to provide you with a straightforward material list. The 2×4 was ripped down lengthwise into 1-1/2″ x 1/2″ strips. Those strips were planed down to a smooth surface on both sides and cut to length. That’s what I used for the sides and bottom.
The shelves and top are made from thinner strips planed down to 3/8″. Also, one of the 3/8″ thick strips was ripped to 3/8″ wide strips for the fencing for the fence (or whatever you want to call it) that keeps the bottles from falling out of the front. That being said, here’s a list of material needed before painting and assembly:
Materials: (Note: these measurements are actual, not nominal sizes).
- Wood Sides – Two 1-1/2″ x 1/2″ x 30″
- Wood Bottom – One 1-1/2″ x 1/2″ x 16″
- Wood Shelves/Top – Eight 1-1/2″ x 3/8″ x 15″
- Wood Back – 16″ x 30″ (1/4″ plywood)
- FrogTape’s Shape Tape 1 roll of Scallop design
- Blue paint (1 cup) guesstimate
- White paint (1 1/2 cups) guesstimate
- Paint brush
The paint I used was white and blue paint leftover from jobs around the house. In fact, the blue paint is the exact same paint used in our bedroom, which helps with the theme.
For the decorative scalloped paint job, I used this awesome new product called FrogTape’s Shape Tape. This product is available in three different patterns: Chevron, Scallop, and Wave. It seals off it’s edges effectively, so you don’t have to worry about paint slipping under the seams.
I painted the base coat of white first. It took 2 coats to fill up the thirsty bare wood. Then I placed the tape where I wanted the white scallop to remain. Lastly, I painted over the white shelf with the blue paint. Once it was dried, I removed the Scallop Shape Tape™. The look was so amazing, and very clean, and sharp–I knew my wife would love it!
Our DIY Hanging Nail Polish holder featuring scallop design looks great thanks to the Shape Tape™ by FrogTape®. The product was easy to work with and I look forward to using it again for other various projects.
