We all have those items lying around our homes…you know the things you aren’t using any more but you think ‘hey maybe I could use it for something…someday’ For me it is a rotating spice rack we got as a wedding gift {12 years ago} The spices and have long since be used, the bottles have disappeared or gotten broken…so it sits in the way back of a cabinet..taking up space!

Ummm this is really sad isn’t it!!?

Then there is my nail polish…oh the nail polish! I LOVE painting my nails! I usually change the color of my nails once a week…unless we have a date night! You know what that means…I have a TON of nail polish!

For years this is how I have stored it…in a plastic storage container that I can put under the bathroom sink.

I decided that I need a better solution for both my old spice rack taking up needed space and my plethora of nail polish…Thus the birth of the “Nail Polish Caddie!”

Cardstock or heavy weight paper {any color…I just happened to have this recycled color}

Step 1:

Trace the bottom of the rack on the paper

{you want to make sure that you are tracing around the part where the spices sit…it should he two little bars about an inch apart}

due to tight spaces you might not have a perfect circle…just fill it in so you know where to cut!

Step 2: Cut 2

Step 3 : Cut each circle in half

Step 4: Cut smaller half circle out of half creating a little “floor” {Be sure to measure the width of your rack where the spices would sit…mine was an inch}

If yours is like mine these little floors will a little long so clip the ends until it fits to your liking

Step 5: Heres where the hot glue comes in…run a small bead of glue on the top of each bar, gently place the floor on the glue…please be very careful hot glue has burned me many times!

{This will just give it a little extra hold…it isn’t necessary but I would recommend it}
