Every time I come close to just biting the bullet and picking one, I think "Hey I should just build something!"
So I've decided to do that. For less than $20 I bought enough 1 x 2" 8 foot (because my lumber yard didn't have 1 x 3"s or 10 foot boards) pine boards to build three shelving units.
One 48W x 59H and two 30W x 59H. Had my man not borrowed my table saw (and had I not been too lazy to haul it back over to my garage) I *might* have just bought a sheet of MDF and ripped the boards. Even cheaper!
Anyway, I started on the larger one this afternoon. My tools...
All squared up, sanded, glued and nailed...I'm not using a backer because I'm attaching it directly to the wall.
And because it's just pine and not better grade, I'm priming...
All painted and ready to be hung on the wall. I've located the studs but I just do NOT have the energy left in my tired old body to hang it tonight because I know if I did, I'd feel compelled to start putting polishes on it, my OCD would kick in and I'd never go to bed.
And what does my mani look like after all of this? Well I've scrubbed until my hands are raw and can't seem to get all the paint off of them. I'm actually wearing Megan Miller Velvet Lounge, which is a vampy deep purple and other than all the black paint everywhere, it still looks pretty good! It's actually more purple and less black, but I will show that to you when I blog about it. I'm too tired to mess with the lighting to show it off properly now.
Tomorrow, I hang it and throw together the other two units which will hang on either side of the window of the wall to the right.
I think this will work!
What do you think? How do you store your polishes?
