New Shelves

For the last 10 months I have been looking for some shelves that I liked to put in Cynthia's room. I eventually gave up looking for the shelves and decided to just find some that I liked and then paint them. A local craft store, Michael's, has a large section of wooden items and I found a set a three shelves there that I liked. To add to the luck of finding the shelves, whenever you purchase something from their store, you get a 40/50% coupon for a single item the following week. So I used my 50% coupon and got the three shelves for $8. A deal that I could not find in the stores. I also had all the colours of paints that I wanted to paint the shelves. I bought a stencil of an elephant for the sides, but when I got home I found the stencil was to big, so I had to shrink the stencil. In the end I spent about $11 on three shelves. Talk about a bargain!

Two shelves on the wall. The large shelf has 'Cynthia' on it, a Christmas present from Britney and Shared last year. The small shelf has a large wire and bead elephant on it, Oupa brought it from South Africa when he came for a visit in April.

A close up for the small shelf. Notice the little gold elephant - it is the stencil that I had to shrink.

There is a medium shelf, but nothing is on it yet, so I never took a picture of it.
