Hello everyone! My name is Sharon. I sew and create original handbags and purses at http://www.elphiadesigns.com/
and sell them at http://www.blogger.com/www.elphiadesigns.etsy.com
This is so exciting for me to be doing a guest post. In fact, it’s my 1st one ever! Woo hoo!
I love all things “organization”…though I may not always be organized! This project is a good effort toward sorting out whose “paper goods” are whose. By this I mean mail, school info, to do lists, etc… I wanted it to be more than just a way to organize, however, I wanted to use it for showcasing special pictures as well.
For this project you will need the following:
1. a very strong wood to wood adhesive, ex: Gorilla Glue
2. foam paint brushes and a medium sized bristle painters’ brush
3. clothes pins
4. a small bottle of Mod Podge
5. any hanging devise of your choice, I used a heavy duty mirror and picture hanger
6. one piece of scrap wood, I got mine for $2 in the “mistake/clearance” pre-cut wood area, or use a scrap piece you have lying around in your garage or basement
7. wooden circle dye cuts, I got mine at Michael’s: 1 bag of seven for $3.
Making the Weekly Organization Shelf:
The Piece of wood I chose was pretty rough, so I sanded it before painting.
Paint the wood completely. It may take a couple of coats. Let it dry thoroughly between coats.
Type whatever words or letters you want to mod podge to your shelf. I used my open office writer. I did font size 40 in bold, italic, “adorable” text font for the words. I did the week letters in font size 44.
Mod podge the words onto the shelf and the letters onto the wooden circles.
Glue the clothes pins to the shelf, measure the
placement first. Follow the directions for the glue…ex: gorilla glue REALLY triple expands, so you don’t need much.
Admire and USE your cool new Weekly Organization Shelf!!
