Do you remember the ribbon storage shelf I made out of our old medicine cabinet last year? I was SO proud of it!! It was all my idea to use the medicine cabinet. I don’t often come up with projects all on my own so this was exciting for me!
Anyway, I’ve been wanting to make another one like it because I still have a whole box full of ribbon and some on top of the old shelf. I hate that I have a random box of ribbon somewhere far away from my ribbon shelf so when I found this little shelf at the thrift store I was SO. EXCITED. It would work PERFECT as my second ribbon shelf and it was only $1.50!! Woohoo! (I really LOVE shopping at the thrift store!! I find AMAZING deals every time I go in!:) It’s my new passion.)
So, I bought it and fixed it up. I placed it next to the other ribbon storage shelf on my scrapbooking desk and it looks great, in my humble opinion!!
What do you think? This is what it started out as:
It had spider webs and dust all over the inside, I don’t know if you can see it from the photo. I had to clean it out really good before I sanded it. I didn’t end up sanding it all down because it was REALLY cheap and I thought it was going to fall apart!! lol
This is what it looked like before I started painting. And I actually had my kids help me paint it so I don’t have any pictures of the process because I was so afraid of them spraying the camera or me or themselves. I gave them my full attention!
I love how it looks on my desk and I feel so much more clean with all the ribbons in their places and not spilling out everywhere! Yay!!
Well, thanks for stoppuing by today! I hope you’re having a great day! I’ll be back on Friday with a big surprise, something you probably forgot I even did!! I can’t wait to show you! See you then!
