|Full disclosure: I forgot to take the before pictures and had already cleared off the shelf. So, this was waaay worse than what you see here. I was too lazy to put the clutter back up :)|
Last week, I bought some speckled eggs to display for Easter for 50% off at Joann Fabrics, so I bought two packages for a total of $9.99! Score for sure. I don't have an overabundance of cool items in which to display them and I cannot get to my ribbon right now, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I remembered that I had two identical clear, tall vases that we used at a fundraiser last year, so I gave it a shot.
I think it turned out pretty well. What do you think? The wall art is actually the inspiration for our playroom, but since we're still working on that project, it's been sitting on the mantel and I thought it went well with the eggs, so I left it there for Easter.
When we were at IKEA a couple weeks ago buying the bookshelves for the playroom, we also bought doors for our entertainment center and hadn't put them on yet, so I figured I would try it out. I'm not great with tools as I normally don't read the directions; I just "figure it out as I go". Hubs has had to come behind me and re-do things plenty of times. I'm just impatient by nature. But this looked pretty easy. And it was. Here's how it looked before the doors - very cluttered and dusty in there.
Here's how it looked afterwards:
