Shelves made for FREE
We made this shelf (2 of them)for my sister's Christmas.... for FREE! My sister recently re-decorated her bedroom. When we were done putting up the wallpaper, I snuck off with some of the extra. Here is how the shelves were made:
Chuck cut a 1x4x8 into 2 foot sections (he had an extra one in the shed.)
I then painted the boards with left over paint.
Chuck drilled out two holes on two of the boards for the pegs.
I wallpapered two of the boards with border - wrapping it around the edges of the board. While the wallpaper was still wet I cut slits where the peg holes are.
The pegs were then inserted. (These were left over from another project.)
The two boards were then screwed together.
Ta Da - Shelves. Even if you had to buy the board and pegs this still would be fairly inexpensive. The bonus to this is that it is customized to your decor!
