DIY: Floral Wall Shelves

4 Jun

I had leftover spray paint from a previous project, and felt a bit crafty. So I drove on down to Value Village and picked up two wall shelves. both needed a major makeover. For about $3 each, plus the cost of green and purple paint for the design, I created cute & simple wall shelves. Thanks to the Design*Sponge blog for giving me this original idea.

Did you take this idea and run with it? Please post your comments/suggestions/links to pictures below!

Re-do a Corner for $25

25 May

I recently decided I was very bored with my room, and wanted a change. But I didn’t want to go out and spend the big bucks, I really wanted to just re-do something in my room.

So, I re-did my room corner. It took me 2 hours and $25.

This is what you will get:

What you need:

– Old pictures frames (from Value Village or your garage)

– An small end table (mine was from Ikea, “Lack”, $7)

– 2 cans of white spray paint in Flat

– 1 can of black spray paint

– A cool stencil for your design (mine was from JoAnns for $4)

– A little bit of black paint to touch up

– Bright, patterned paper

So, it’s really simple. You spray paint the entire table in white. While it’s drying, spray paint the picture frames white. Don’t worry about getting the glass painted, the paper goes on top of the glass in the frame so it doesn’t matter. Now take your stencil and gently tape it to the table’s surface. Spray paint the black over the stencil, directly above, and not too thick or it will drip and smudge your design. Let it dry and use the black paint to touch up the design if needed. Cut the paper to fit into the frames and glue them on top of the frame’s glass.

And, walla! A brand new, designer like corner for $25 or less. Post any questions or suggestions in the comments!
