DIY Quirky new shelves

Hi lovies, haven't posted in awhile so I thought I would:)

Today, my hubby and I had a lazy day and played with the doggies all day. We also ended up cleaning out our garage too and happened to take a spontaneous trip to town. We went to Target duh  and I've been eyeing their cute & CHEAP little shelves they have. I know you guys have to remember me telling you about the room in the front of our home that I HATE don't like. Well, I decide to give those cheap shelves a new look on the cheap. I used fabric I already had...and will probably change them out later to something else but for now they will do.

If you have shelves like these or have been thinking about it, you should really try this! Quick and easy and they look totally fabulous now! Here's my step-by-step!

1. Buy your shelves.
2. Put them together as the instructions say. These were wayyy idiot proof so perfect for blonde me:) Before I nailed the backing on, I simply stapled the fabric to the backing and then nailed on. That simple. The shelves were $20 each and I already had the fabric so this project only cost me $20. Bam. I know. Awesome.

Here's my fabric...I purchased this from HL a couple a months ago. They were actually my curtains for this room but I want new ones :P

Here's my view when I was stapling the fabric to the backing...cute, fun and so easy.

And here is the finished product! :)

Let me know what you think!

Love Always,
