At the beginning of the month, I went poking around down in Arkansas at some 2nd hand stores looking for shelving for my craft room. I found this hideous beauty:
I know, it's awful, but I was thinking I could put a lot of stuff on those three tiered shelves. I didn't love the heart cut-outs, so I figured I could take them off and hey, with Valentines Day coming up, maybe I could do something with them. Of course, they were glued AND nailed on. I got out my chisel and Dremel. I Love my Dremel.
Now I have 3 projects to do. They're pretty rough, have a lot of stain on them and I really didn't want to spend a lot of time prepping them because well, they were just kind of ugly. I poured some deglosser on a rag and wiped them down and called it good. Here's what I did with the first one:
Tomorrow, I'll show you the other 2....or maybe just one, depending on how productive I am today. (I'm having the in-laws over for dinner so some cooking and cleaning must happen sometime between now and 6 p.m.!)
