Hi, it's Mandi! I just adore seeing antique type trays re-purposed in modern home decor, though I could never think of anything I had to display in one. But every time I came across an old tray on my antiquing adventures, I pushed my brain harder to come up with a collection I surely had at home that deserved to be displayed. Then one day it hit me—nail polish, duh! What took me so long? Check out how simple it was to add an ombré effect to my nail polish display with the step-by-step photos below.
Step One: Measure the length and width of each row. Make sure you measure each row, as they may vary in size.
Step Two: On the cardstock, draw rectangles the same size as the above measurement. Make sure to keep track of the measurements so the final display has the colors blending in the correct order.
Step Three: Use double-sided tape to stick the cardstock onto the back of the display. I was able to slide my long strip of cardstock behind the wooden slots, but you may need to cut down the cardstock to fit each cubby.
