I’ve gotten a little craft-happy these last few weekends! One necessary project included upgrading from scotch tape to mod podge. That’s right, I’m decoupaging up in here!
I have had two hand-me-down shelves in my bedroom for about 3 years. When I first received the shelves, they were a light colored wood and very “country living” with a heart cut out on the bottom part of the shelf. Neither color nor shape really fit my style.
3 years back, I was only a half-crafter. Insert extra white paint and scotch tape. When I moved into my apartment, the owner had left a can of white paint in the closet. I broke that right open and gave the light colored wood a face lift. My next and only display of effort, was managing to pick up a sheet of scrap-booking paper, cut it out in the shape of the shelf and tape it right over the heart. That was as crafty as I got. If I remember correctly, I was pretty darn proud.
Well, three years later, I’ve had to replace that scotch tape a few times. Every now and again, I’d walk into my bedroom and the scrap-booking paper would be hanging by a thread or would have managed an escape and I’d find it poking out from under a piece of furniture.
Escape artist, no more! Insert Mod Podge.
I’m a regular craft queen these days 🙂
