I had a coupon for a free samples of paint from Lowe's. I have been collecting these coupons and getting different color samples each time I go in. It's great for the little projects that I've been working on.
I painted everything with the satin, Du Jour, color. I was able to get about 2 coats out of one of those small samples.
Measured it out on the wall, and made sure that it was level. I also anchored it down with 4 screws on the to of the shelf into the corbel. (Sorry, I missed getting a photo of that) I basically anchored each corner down.
I then, sat back and admired my handy work. This was once again, a project that was done while The Mister was at work. Needless to say, he was quite impressed when he came home to see that I turned a stair into a shelf and that the entire desk area was organized.
See, we had a deal, I would organize the desk area, and then he would hang the new white door in Baby-Girl's room. After that's done, I'll be able to give you the full room reveal. :)
Back to the shelf supplies, I had purchased these items, months ago, I'm guessing about 7-8 months ago with this idea in mind.
Red Oak Stair Tread: $21.98 (I believe)
2 Corbels: $4.98
Total Cost: $26.96
What have you been organizing lately? Taking anything from its original use and turning it into something new?
