Spice Racks - Not Just for Spices

Han is all moved into her new room, and is working on getting it all set up today.  We still need to accessorize and order her new furniture, so I won't be sharing photos of the room until it's actually complete.

I was trying to come up with some way I could contribute to the room since all of the hard work was being done by Charles, and the design work by Han.  I have a ton of spice racks in my stash, and I thought one might be useful to her as a rack to hold her nail-polish.

I used spray paint this time (I was careful of the fumes!), which seems to be winning me over again since it doesn't take nearly as long as brush painting does.  It seems I no longer have the patience to work on a project for days.  This was a can of Rustolem Green Apple that I bought last year when I first began doing makeovers.  Basically, this was a free project, which is the best kind!

I'm loving how the green looks against the aqua wall.

I also love how she went all ROYGBIV when arranging them.

  1. this looks great! the fun green color is even more fun with the nailpolishes!

  2. What a neat idea! Even a posh nail salon could do this(use these for merchandising)and they'd be great. Thanks for sharing:)

  3. Love this idea! I'm going to copy this. I actually thrifted a spice rack and wasn't sure what to do with it. :)

  4. OMG I so need my daghters to try this for their bathroom! Stopping by from Marketing Mondays at the Treehouse and I am your latest follower - hope you can stop by soon and return the favor. http://www.shaunanosler.blogspot.com/

  5. So cute! This was the perfect thing for nail polish! Looks great :)

  6. I love the color combo of green and aqua! This is a great idea. I have polish stored in a plastic tub. I end up using the ones on top the most because the rest get hurried at the bottom. Tis way you can see what colors you have!! Thanks for sharing.

  7. What a great idea! I never would have thought.......

  8. Hahahah -- I'm all about the ROYGBIV! Us O.C.D.ers have to stick together. (And awesome reuse for an ordinary spice rack - very cool idea.)

  23. Wonderful idea - I have an old spice rack that could use this treatment. I don't use nail polish, but I'll either find a use or donate it to a thrift shop. I haven't done that because of the condition.
