Good Morning Polished People! 🙂
I’ve posted some pictures on Twitter, so if you follow me there (@polishmeplease) you may have seen these already but I want to share them with everyone. I got a new polish organizer this past weekend. It was $20 at the hardware store and it caused me a LOT of grief putting it together, but it was totally worth it. Now, I’m a pretty handy girl for the most part. I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty or *gasp!* break a nail. I (with the help of my husband and brother) refinished the hardwood floors in my house, completely revamped the house, including removing an entire wall, I helped install crown moulding, I’m capable of fixing many things on my own, etc. That being said- dannnnggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this nail polish tower (or “12” revolving bin” as the hardware store called it, how boring!) had SEVENTY FIVE bolts, flat washers and nuts that had to be screwed together and tightened with a ratcheting wrench in order for it to realize its true potential (aka: get built). It came in a 5″ flat box and you had to build it yourself. It came out of the box in many, many pieces of flat and curved metal and 3 hours later (no joke, THREE hours) this is what I had:
I almost forgot to tell you! Up above, when I said “In 3 hours this is what I had:” I was sort of lying. Because after 3 hours of assembling this beast, I seriously put on THE FINAL piece that holds it all together and guess what? IT WAS BROKEN! I wanted to scream, cry and kill
someone everyone!!! My joy turned to horror in 4 seconds flat. It was like 2am, so I couldn’t go back to the store, so I had to leave my lovely polish tower unassembled until morning noon when I went back to the store and got a replacement part. Luckily, the guy there was really nice (although a little confused when I said I needed a new part for my nail polish holder) and gave me a new one. I came home, put that new piece in and admired my work 😀
I absolutely LOVE this new nail polish organizer. How do you store your polishes? Wanna place a bet on how many days it’ll be till this one is full? Haha. As always, thank you very much for reading, and I look forward to reading and replying to your comments below 🙂 Happy polishing!
