All By My Shelves

I wanted to share a neat project I did over the summer. I found these shelves at a garage sale($.25/ea SCORE!!!) over 5 years ago. Can you believe that? 5 YEARS! I had these stuffed in a closet for so long that I had completely forgot about them. *Gasp* How could I? I brought them out and said to myself "I could always use more storage space." Seriously, who couldn't? I got out some scrapbooking paper and acrylic paints. (I know, I know, spray paint would've been so much easier, but, in my defense, a.) I didn't have any in the colors I wanted and b.) Walmart doesn't carry them in the shades I was going for). I got to work and sanded, painted, mod podged paper, and sealed with acrylic sealer.

Drumroll please...

Here is Shelf #1. Please don't mind the quality of the picture though. I forgot to take pictures of them after I had finished them. After they were hung on the wall, I didn't want to take them back down. Besides, it's raining. Which sucks. But that's a whole 'nother post!

Here is Shelf #2. I think this one is my favorite though. I really like the red. Plus I like my bags hanging off of it too.

Okay, maybe I need some pics of my shelves WITHOUT all of my stuff on them. I hope you liked my project. Thanks for stopping by!
