My polish storage

I was recently asked about polish storage for my collection and I've been posting this photo at MUA for at least a year maybe longer. So its about time I posted it here, right?


I used four Scrapbook drawer cubes made by JetMax and then I went to Home Depot and got the widest shelf they carry and cut it down to about 5 feet. I trimmed the raw edges with white iron on melamine tape and then placed it on top of the cubes. I had planned to silicone it down, but the shelf is so heavy it wasn't necessary. I then lined each drawer with the rubber grippy like drawer liner and Viola! Easy peasy and the drawers are the perfect size for all my polish bottles. Each drawer holds about 100 bottles, so I have room to grow about 500 more bottles, YES! :D

  1. Oooh, love this. Wish I had the room. Right now, I'm using a 24 pocket over the door shoe organizer. It's actually quite nice because I can sort by color and see all my selections quite nicely. ;) Now the hard part is choosing each time I do a manicure!

    1. That sounds handy!! I use a smaller version of that for my perfume oils and love it! I think mine is meant for jewelry.

  2. I have two storage units that look like that, I got them at Michaels on clearance for 15.00 each. They have 4 drawers each, I love your table top idea!! I may try it too! I put thick poster board at the bottom of each drawer in case the polish gets heavy

    1. They're pretty great for storing polish! I have since then, added four more cubes so this no longer looks like a desk, but more like a dresser with many drawers! Enjoy your new set up!
