Here's what the finished product looked like.
I know! Cute huh??
I've been wanting to do something with this wall since we moved in, because lets face it, it's dull. Actually, dull would be a step up from what it was.
So being the frugal woman that I am , I dusted off my coupon book and headed for the stores. After heading to Home Depot, A.C. Moore, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby, my supply list was complete.
I started with a plain brown shelf, which I sanded down a bit. The self, which I got at A.C Moore, cost me about $6.00. After sanding down the self, I painted it with the first coat, and let it dry overnight. Then the next day, I did the touch ups.
Next I drilled in the knobs. This was the hardest part. I measured, drew lines, even checked to make sure my measurements were correct. It still came out uneven, but I'm not going to fret over it. Too much anyway. I promise, I'm not going to wake up at 2:30 in the morning and stare at it, until ultimately I decide to just start from scratch. That was the old me. The new me loves the imperfections and realizes that the imperfections are what makes it unique and individual to me.
Next came my earring holder. This is the part I love. That lovely frame that you see on display was originally priced at $46.99. As nice as it is, it wasn't worth 47 bucks. Especially since it was just the frame. No glass and no backing. Luckily the manager on duty realized this and took 50% off. And then, removed an additional 40% since it was one of the redline items. Score!!! This is why I love A.C Moore.
While I was in Michael's I snagged those cute little boxes and pearls that you see on the self. The
boxes were on sale for a couple dollars a pop, and the pearl flowers cost $5.00.
So that was my weekend in a nutsell. Here's an adorable shot of my daughter for the road.
Until next time.
