The racks on the walls are just chrome spice racks I picked up on ebay here. At £8.99 each they were a lot cheaper than proper polish racks, and they didn't need me, or indeed someone more competent, to build them first. They just turn up at the door, and get screwed onto the wall - lazy girl storage! I have 2 slightly different types of rack, but I have linked you to the ones you see on the pink wall, as they're a lot better. The other ones needed to be lined at the bottom with card to stop minis falling through the gaps :(
The walls in my flat are probably as cheap and crappy as they come, being up in a high-rise flat, so I used Self-Drive Plasterboard fixings to make sure they stay up. The first rack has been up and full for about a year now, and the wall's showing no signs of strain whatsoever. However, this is just my personal experience, with my walls. Please do not put anything up on yours until you've confirmed you have the right tools and fixings, and it's safe to put up. I will not be held responsible if you pull your house down! :p These are the fixings I used:
here. On ebay I paid £4.49 for a pack of 12. You can just screw them straight into the wall with a screwdriver, but I (by which I mean, my dad), used a drill to make it easier, since we were going through wooden supports for a few of them :) Please, please, do make sure these are right for your walls before using them though :D
So, that's it for wall storage, but there's more than that.......
here) that holds most of my stampers. Until very recently I had these all shoved in a box, and they got pretty forgotten about, so it's great to have them displayed properly. I only bought a 3-tier rack, as this sits on top of a bookshelf in front of my chrome racks, so I don't want to block off the polishes behind it too much, but you can get these in 4, 5, or 6-tier varieties on ebay too.
So, I hope you guys have enjoyed this little snoop around my stash. Maybe I've even given you an idea or two. Honestly, if just one person finds one helpful thing here, I'll be happy :D
I'll be back tomorrow with another mani for the A-Z of Polish, so I will see you gorgeous people then......
