Homemade Nail Polish Stand

I did a nail polish cull, cutting my collection from 74 to 36! I just hadn’t been wearing policy that much recently, and a lot of them were still being stored in a box under my bed. The rest were inn a little basket on my chest of drawers which kept them corralled but not very easy to see.  And that’s another reason I wasn’t using them.

So I made some little stands for them.  I did this a while ago with foam, but ended up getting rid of them when I moved house.  Plus I had about 400 polishes then and didn’t need stands that big anymore.

I used some cardboard that my planner came packaged in (side note am now obsessed with planner stickers!), and some foam board which I have accumulated somehow, and some silver crepe paper.

I just cut the cardboard to my desired size, and then stacked them on top of each.  I cut the foam board to the same size and glued that on the top and bottom of the stack.  I then wrapped it all over with the silver crepe paper.  As usual I glued it all with fabric glue as I find this to be very secure, and my regular PVA is glued shut!  It looks so much more organised now, although it does take up a bit more room on my dressing table. 

 

 

Craft Room

Did a re-organisation of my craft room as it was getting quite messy!  I really really really need to get rid of stuff to sort it properly but it definitely feels tidier now.

Here’s some of me sorting stuff, which involved piling it all up in the middle of the room.  I also made some labels to stick on the walls around the room to help me figure out where things should go!
