Quick project

We decided to join the fun @ Kimba's "Do it yourself day". Check out all of the great projects your fellow bloggers have been busy working on.


Today, I made over my shelf in the front hallway. Since I put the house numbers on my back door, I have been itching to do another project with numbers.


Above is the before, the shelf had pegs for hangers and they were not very sturdy. As you can see I am missing a peg.


Here is the after, I attached some hooks that I purchased at Walmart for under $10. Next, I printed out some numbers on my computer to the size that would fit above the hooks. Last, I traced them with carbon paper and used a paint pen to fill them in.

I did almost the EXACT same shelf a couple of weeks ago, but I started with the corner brackets and actually built it. Here's the link: http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/2009/07/shelving-issue.html

Isn't amazing how great minds think alike? Have a great day!
