with some extra help. Most of you probably know that we are homeschooling this year. (I am going to get around to post about that... promise)
Well I decided if I were going to do this, I was going to do it right. Education, classroom, organization and all.
For me as an Art Major with an emphasis in 3D and interior design having an unorganized UGLY room wasn't going to work for me. But... with me not working at all now my options are limited. Here is one project I am particularly pleased with. It all started with...
The interior design side of me me wanted to pout. Yes I know! SILLY.
But then the creative side kicked in! All I needed was white paint, fabric and a few pieces of crown molding.
We actually ended up painting the shelves twice... lets just say that you SHOULD sand them first. The first two coats of paint just peeled right off... I didn't even need a paint scraper! UGH. :) For a fleeting moment I thought about burning these and going to buy white shelves. I actually looked it up online... "never mind even the 'cheap' shelves like these are $80 a piece. Back to plan A"
$15 for a gallon of paint (yep that covered the shelves both times!)
$25 for crown molding
$20 for fabric
$0 for the shelves. (I already had the mod podge and tools I needed as well)
=$60 for two shelves that make me smile!
$160 (at best) for plain boring shelves.
Not bad huh?
PS it has been called to my attention that I don't blog enough... ;) So I am going to try to step it up a little. This one is for you Boston family ;)
