But then I checked my bank account and realized I’d have to get all DIY. No biggie. It actually turned out to be a very simple project, once I figured out how I was going to pull it off, and I like my version better because my nail polish is behind closed doors so it doesn’t get dusty (I HATE dusting my nail polish), yet they are visible. So here’s what I did:
I purchased a shadow box from Michael’s. I had researched others online, but I am not a patient soul (I wanted my curio NOW), and Michael’s was having a particularly great sale on their picture frames. So, I grabbed the largest one I could that also had a front-hinged access panel. I also picked up several balsam wood slats to use as shelves and gold paint (I already had the wood glue).
I cut one wood slat into about 1-inch pieces to be used as shelf braces and cut down the rest of the slats using a hand saw to fit the width of the shadow box since these would be used as my shelves, and then I spray-painted everything gold.
