*Update* If I was so psyched when I made this project...I'm super psyched now~! I entered this project into One Month To Win It! Go check it out! One Month To Win It
I'm so psyched! About a week ago I bought another "as is" bundle from Ikea for $10 (love those!!), and there were three paneled doors (very light weight) that go on one of their free standing closet systems (in with a foot board and various other pieces). I knew exactly what I was going to do with them right when I saw them!
|It's about seven feet long, but I didn't actually measure it (that would have required me to look for the measuring tape).|
|Close up of the panels and some small damage. Didn't bother me, I'm going to cover it up.|
|Laid out all my accessories I wanted to add and I had to cut down the four squares of cork board to make them fit.|
|Once again used my fave Martha stencil to add some color to the middle panel.|
|This is the first time I have tried Martha paint. I normally go with the low end acrylic, but the "high gloss" appealed to me and I love this color (Geranium).|
|Everything painted and adhered. I'm not going to lie.....the stencil kicked my ass! It was so hard to do next to the raised edges. I ended up free-handing the edges. A close up pic is coming...don't judge! :)|
|I painted some cardboard letters with the Martha paint to fill in the weird spot left over from not wanting to have too many pieces of cork board put together like a puzzle (not attractive)|
|And.....the close up. Yeah, it's bad, real bad.|
I love it though! I'm going to make the other two panels (however, they are a little narrower), and try to sell them. My daughter, Heather , and my niece both want one, but no way am I hauling them to Kansas! Heather was visiting me (and with me) when I purchased the bundle and she was NOT happy about the giant pieces looming over her and Kayden's heads while driving home. She is such a sweet sister, I just KNOW she wouldn't wish that on her little brother during our drive to Kansas over the Christmas holiday (*please note the heavy sarcasm*).
What would you price this at if you were selling it?
