i love nail art, and therefore have a ton of nail polish (and etceteras). when i recently moved i got a smaller room to live in, but i find that a lot of times that causes me to get more creative i bought the lillången cabinet from ikea because it’s skinny but tall. great for the space in my room, not great for fitting stuff inside.
in comes the glowforge - i created custom stacking, divided boxes that now house my large polish collection.
here’s the box by itself. clear so i can see the beautiful colors! the inner dividers get bigger from one side to another to accommodate different sized bottles and maximize usage.
here’s a full one (of many)! you can see the labels on the top - that had been my solution when they lived in a drawer (since the top was all you could see).
inside the cabinet! (you can see the carboard test version on the shelf below the polish )
closeup of the boxes.
i love seeing the polishes - but i’m running into the problem of not seeing what colors are behind the first row. i was thinking about cutting a thin strip similar to the long-side divider and placing it at the front with swatches on it. i think color coding would help too - but i have the potential problem of the spaces being different and all of one color might not fit in the same section (if that makes sense).
if anyone has any better suggestions - i would love to hear them!
