Bathroom Storage | Nail Polish Shelf

Sharing is caring!

I’ve got 2 teenage girls who share a bathroom, so bathroom storage is always a top priority! Oh and we have lots of nail polish and hair products.  If you’ve got girls that age you know the organization / storage struggle is real!  So to help with their bathroom storage I decided to make a nail polish shelf where they could store some of their hair product too.

Bathroom Storage Nail Polish Shelf DIY

I’ve been wanting to build a storage shelf for a while and it’s an easy build.

Boards Needed to Build a Nail Polish Storage Shelf

Bathroom Storage Shelf Supplies

  • three  3″ x 6′ x .75″ boards
  • two   1.5″ x 4′ popular hobby boards

Storage Shelf Cuts:

  • cut five 22.5″ pieces from your 3″ x 6′ boards
  • cut two 30″ pieces from your 3″ x 6′ boards
  • cut both of your popular hobby boards in half giving you four 2′ pieces

Building a Nail Polish Shelf

Your 22.5″ pieces are your horizontal pieces (top, bottom and shelves).  Your 30″ pieces are your sides.  I attached all the pieces with my nailer.

Then I attached the hobby board pieces to the front of the shelves.  I made the board flush with the bottom of the shelf, so it would create a little edge to keep the nail polish from falling off.  I attached the hobby board with a nailer too.

  3. This is perfect for organizing your teen’s beauty supplies. It’s also handy to have the products where the girls can see them and easily get to them when they are getting ready in the morning. We have tiny bathrooms in my house and a project like this would free up some up my precious cabinet space.

  5. I love your project and wall storage is one of my favorite ways to use space! What a great way to keep teens and nail polish organized. I remember how cluttered having lots of nail colors was when my girls were teens, wish I’d have known then what I know now…famous last words, right?
