I have been so out of craft mode lately. However, a wonderful girl that I met through my zumba classes and friended on Facebook has a new page that is called Agree to It. She will sell your old stuff for you and take a cut of what you make. Kind of like a kijiji or craig's list on Facebook. She has been great at getting rid of unwanted stuff from my house. A friend of hers also has an Orillia Storage Wars page, and they have auctions twice a week. I am LOVING it!!! Since I love crafting so much, but don't need any new furniture in my house, I am teaming up with her. I will craft and she will sell.
First up on the list, a free bookcase.
Silly me. I forgot to start taking pictures before I took the shelf apart. Someday, I will learn.......
I had some material left over from when I redid my kitchen table, so I decided to use it.
I took the material to Home Depot and went to the Oops section to see what kind of paint they had. Boy, did I luck out!! I got 4 cans of paint for $1.00 each!!!! Of course, the colour that I wanted, navy blue, was not in the pile of paints, so I did have to splurge and spend $4.99 on it.
It is very hard to photograph navy blue
The material was adhered to the back of the shelf by using spray adhesive. I love this pattern.
The shelf itself took about 4 coats of paint, and it is still a little "shabby chic" in spots. I think it lends a little
charm to it. What do you think?
Not too bad for a price tag of $4.99, is it?
Now, to put it on Orillia Storage Wars and watch (hopefully) it sell.
Lots more projects coming up. I am IN CRAFT MODE everybody!!!!
