DIY Weekend: Nail Polish Shelves


I'm so excited to pop in today and show you my two custom nail polish shelves I made this weekend.  I got this tutorial from a you tuber named ngeurriero19, she has an excellent step by step on her channel.  I followed her basic instructions, but customized each to my liking and this is the result.  I am really pleased with how these turned out.  I am not sure how long it will last but they are sturdy.  Now I did learn a lesson for future purposes.  I bought my first set of foam boards from OfficeMax, they were a three pack for $16.00.  Now I thought that was a little steep cause I'm seeing people all over you tube saying they paid like $2.00 for their boards, however I purchased them anyway.  I then stopped at General Dollar store to get a couple of items on my way home and they had the black boards, which I originally wanted that color any way for $1.25 each.  I thought what a deal and bought three of those and some extra duct tape.  Well I can testify that you truly get what you pay for because the OfficeMax boards are so much more sturdy and just a better quality than the General Dollar store ones are.  So if you are going to follow this tutorial, go ahead and pay the extra for better quality foam boards, it is worth it in the end.
