Something From Nothing and a little bit of Everything!

The art of turning "good junk" into "great design"

"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."

Thrift Store Shelf

So I got this little shelf at Goodwill for $2.50 (it was originally $5.00 but it was a 50% off day) It was super cute and I figured I could jazz it up. Here's how.

 I cleaned and primed the shelf white.

Then I used some paint I already had and painted it blue.

 I got a roll of this adhesive paper from the Dollarama (where else do I shop?) for $2.00. So I cut and stuck the paper to the back of the shelf.

 There you go now you can use this guy for anything you want to display or organize.

 I decided to try and get my nail polish collection under control.

What you need:
Shelf $2.50
Primer Free
Paint Free
Wallpaper or adhesive paper $2.00 (You could also use scrapbook paper and glue it to the back of the shelf)
