As the commercial says… having a baby changes everything! This includes the accumulation of stuff! Now that Avery is walking there is also a need for things to be up and out-of-the-way of little hands. I also know that with her first birthday looming, our home will explode with even more toys. It just so happened that my wonderful aunt was able to get me a 4 foot metal shelf for only $20! Looking at it got my create juices flowing.
Because let’s be honest, there was no way that ugly thing was going in my living room as it was. Enter 3 cans of spray paint and a little elbow grease.
The shelf was reborn with its new coat of paint.
I wanted to improve it even more by adding a wall decal I got at a local craft store for only $2!
I think it really finished it off. For $35 all of Avery’s toys have a home and so do my knitting/sewing books as well as my basket of knitting projects.
It really finishes the room I think! It has really spurred me on to find other storage/furniture/decor solutions that reuse and recycle items needing a little TLC.
Go and Create!
