Using a nail polish rack for vallejo bottles and metallic bits

I have been using nail polish racks to sort my paints for a while. I use mostly three brands of paint: Vallejo, scale75 and Privateer Press (P3). My OCD has forced me to actually move all the P3 paints onto Vallejo bottles:

However, this post is not about that, this post is about how to enhance those racks to do even more! (maniacal laugh on the background).

I have been having problems with my drill bits because I keep losing them. So I decided to buy magnetic tape and add it to my paint rack. Now I can keep all those pesky bits and even xacto blades:

What other DIY projects have you guys used to improve your painting desk?

    I’ve thought about using a nail polish rack in the past, but found them to all be a little to narrow for GW paint pots. But since I’ve made the leap to airbrushing I am slowly starting to phase out my massive collection of GW paints in favor for the much easier to use Vallejo line. Might have to give this a try again.

    As far as my painting station goes, its an absolute warzone. I’d be embarrassed to post pictures, haha.

    This is a brilliant idea… had never even thought of using nail polish racks… as for transferring p3 to dropper bottle – wherr did you find them? So far everything I purchased is so flimsy I wss afraid to use them in fear of them leaking or drying out
