Repurposed Above Tv Shelf

Repurposed Above Tv Shelf

Remember when I told you that I had a plan for the extra piece of desk from the my How to Make A Bunk Bed Desk project? I needed to cut the IKEA table top in order to use it as a desk and for it to fit properly. I turned that extra piece into a shelf… well it didn’t need too much work to do that since it was mostly already done for me but it did need a bracket, screw and nails. I thought about spray painting it but I couldn’t decide on a color and then whenever I mention spray painting something I would get the look of  “Not another spray painting project” so for now I decided to keep it simple and white. No spray painting necessary since it was already from a white table.

At first I tried the bracket this way but it didn’t work out.
So I turned it to the other side.

Next all I needed to do was to hammer it into the wall. 

I made sure to add my drawing that I did when I was younger.  

A nice section for my perfume (so that no little toddler hands get a hold of it)and a bear for security.

Decorative boxes for storage. 

I thought another piece of work that I made when I was younger worked well here.

It was a very simple project and later if I am in the mood for a change I could always spray paint it!
