This little shelf project is dear to me! This is what passed as “decor” in my home when my husband and I were very first married! (The sad, plastic before, that is).
I wish I was as creative as Joyce from Cheap Frills back then and could have dolled them up, even on a newlywed budget. She did this on the cheap with acrylic paint, scrapbook paper, and ribbon. She says she’s hoping that “Having a somewhat prettier storage area will assist me in actually STORING things away.”
And here’s another project by Joyce, a breadbox redo! Isn’t it cute? I like the chalkboard insert. I’d probably write something predictable, like “Bread” and then hide chocolate in there!
Hi! I'm Lindsey, and this site is inspired by you! This is a showcase of my favorite part of any design project or makeover: The before and afters! It's always better after! I love seeing transformations of thrift store treasures or overlooked items into beautiful and functional design and decor. I'm endlessly inspired by what people can conceive and create. Do you have any before and afters to submit? Please share! BetterAfter@live.com
