DIY hutch makeover
1. A really good ruler...and someone who's keen on measurements :)
2. multiple pieces of foam board
4. double sided tape
Hancock's is really getting to know mom and I. We hit a great sale and snagged our fabrics for less than a dollar a yard!!! I think we left the joint with all of our fabrics (9 total) for around 8 dollars!!! Don't you just love some gorgeous fabrics?! Us too!!! :D
After that, it's really very simple! First, cut your foam board down to size. Mom wanted 3 fabrics per shelf, so we measured the pieces to mimic the sizes of the windows on the hutch (I won't mention that I spent last night altering some ill-measured foam boards :/)
Next, put strips of double sided tape around the back edges of your foam board, like so:
Set them in the back of your furniture piece, and ta-da!:
Mom chose to use this as her craft cabinet. Great idea!!! She displayed books, paint brushes, paint, and nearly everything she uses to create. She even has room in the shelves on the bottom for the big stuff!!!
I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend, and don't forget to check out some of my "happies" in the previous post!
