Current DIY projects

I'm pretty excited to share my current diy projects. The first is a spice rack turned nail polish holder.

This is an old dirty spice rack I got for free. I cleaned it up, spray painted with silver metallic color and stood it in my bathroom to function as a nail polish holder. Pretty cute right? And yes I do have a lot of nail polish hehe! I tend to impulse buy nail polish for some reason. In my defense though a few of those bottles are saved from when I was in highschool.

Here is my second project completed this week.

We have quite a few random yardsale type pieces left over from when we did storage auctions. This stuff never sells! I found a way to repurpose this random candlestick holder and ugly decorative plate. I spray painted both pieces with silver metallic paint and then glued the plate on top of the candlestick. I tried my hot glue gun first but it didn't hold, then I tried gorilla glue and it works perfectly.


  1. I can't believe how much different you made the candlestick and plate look. Looks just like a fancy tray I bought a Pier 1 now! Thanks for sharing how you did this.
