Spice Rack Makeover

So a while back... a long while back... my girlfriend and I were talking about organizing nail polish.
She thought it would be a great idea to repurpose an old spice rack and even have the drawers where you can put your nail clippers, buffer and all the other goodies that you need to do your nails.
I dont even know what all of them are called, lucky I paint my nails three times a year and let the color grow out. Gross I know, you probably didnt need to know that.

Well I searched and searched for a spice rack with drawers and I finally found one. Took me so long to get going with this project that I cant even find my before pix.
It was a nice rack, but it was old looking and just plain wood.

I sprayed it with a couple of coats of black paint.


Then I cut out a pice of board that I picked up from Home Depot and cut it out to fit the backside of the spice rack. And covered it with some lovely pink and black damask fabric.


I stapled it to the backside of the spice rack so that it would show through the front.
And so this is what you see..

 


And look, I cant believe how cute it turned out with the drawers on the bottom for stuff.

Now she can hang it up and put her nail polish and lotions and all her goodies on it.


Then again, come to think of it... she started crafting and scrapbooking.
This would be really cute to organize her little buttons and stickers and beads and things like that too!
What do you guys think? Nail polish holder or craft holder?
I think she's got way too much craft stuff to fit on this little spice rack.

This is such a good idea Rhiannon! My daughter has a bunch of nail polish stored in a bin. This would be a great alternative!
