I bought these pine shelves last year so it was time I did something with them.
I pushed the back off, it was stapled with just a dab of glue so that was easy. I marked the back before I pushed it off but I needn’t have bothered as it has discoloured, so it was easy to see the sections.
A couple of coats of white paint.
I’m not a scrapbooker but I bought a pad of scrapbook paper thinking it might come in handy for something. I cut the paper to size & glued it to the backing with a Blustick.
I’d left the staples in place & the back just pushed straight back onto the shelves.
This cute bunting comes from a blog I follow, lucky I remembered it. I resized it as I wanted it smaller & printed it out.
Here’s the link if you’d like some cute bunting too:
I glued it to some candlewicking cotton.
I used double sided tape to attach the bunting to the shelves.
I’m not sure what I’ll put in them yet, I’ve hung them on the dining room wall. I’ll be Xmas decorating next week, NEXT WEEK, bloody hell who stole 2011, lol. Yes well I’ll put some Xmassy things in the shelves when I decorate & worry about something more permanent next year.
