House plans and back to the drawing board
While on a shopping trip, I found an unfinished shelf with drawers. It could be wall mounted or sit on a desk or cabinet. Nothing fancy, just a wonderful place to stash “stuff “. Perfect for a remake!
Then the intimidation kicked in. I am so frightened of many – artists/crafters – techniques. My intentions were to do the staining, painting, distressed look.
I stained and painted and sanded and HATED this wonderful little shelf.
Next, I added old paper floor plans and stained and painted and sanded and then PANICED. The wonderfully versatile shelf with drawers looked terrible.
I had ruined the shelf. So upsetting. ;-( (Super SAD Face)
Since making ordinary things into something special is what I love to do, I went back to the drawing board!
Now, the great shelf is embellished with another set of house plans that show too much carbon and have great personality.
Of course, when these house plans were commissioned, someone loved the house and needed a heart keyhole.
Now I love the house plan shelf with drawers!
Going back to the drawing board worked for me. Wouldn’t you just love to use this for stashing lots of wonderful “stuff”?
