I decided this evening that I was finally going to start a project I've been thinking about for days now. Since the sofa table is finished, as much as I can without spending a whole bunch of money decorating it, I wanted to try something new. Remember the shelf stand we have in the bathroom? I've been trying really hard to make it look nice, and sturdy. I finally came up with a solution :: Fabric and cardboard! :)
And it worked
Unfortunately this project required me to go into the dreaded attic.
This is all I used for my project. Total cost $10.95. I found the fabric at our local Hobby Lobby. Nope, I don't know the name of it. But Hobby Lobby, I went in, not having any idea what I was doing. I asked the lady in the sewing department what I could use, because I
I cut the boxes into 3 pieces.
Then I measured out the fabric. I made it a little big so that I would have extra.
I then taped the cardboard to the shelves. I know they're too short, but whatever, it's what I had. After that I wrapped the fabric around the shelves and secured it with the no sew hemming tape. It was a huge pain to use. Kept getting stuck to the scissors and then not to the fabric. After about 45 minutes of messing around I finally got the fabric all into place. And this is what I ended up with.
I think the fabric goes great with the new vibe I'm trying to give the bathroom. It matches really well with the rug without clashing and brings in the green. I broke my vase too... You can see it now has a heart shape at the top. At least it was a pretty break. It's staying for now.
Just a reminder of the rug
I also found those neat canisters and that basket. Got the basket at Michael's for 40% off!! Steal! The canisters I found at Habitat ReStore in Matthews. Yep, we have one 4 blocks away :)
Just a little project I finally decided to start. And luckily finished in one evening!
Next, we look for a dryer :)
