Flashback Friday~Shelf Makeover

I took an unfinished shelf from my local craft store.  One just like the type here.  I forgot to take a picture of the one I used before I started redoing it.  Ooops!  So, this is the closest thing I could find to what I used.



I flipped the shelf upside down and glued some unfinished balls to the bottom of the shelf.  Then I painted it and added some scrapbook paper with mod podge.  I added matching baskets and VOILA, I had a handy dandy storage space to store some more of my craft supplies.  It looks cute and works great!



If you want to see a video clip of this shelf and some others I did, CLICK HERE.  Have a great weekend!  Now go and get creative!!!  :)
