My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Repurposing shelves

Posted by tehblogging trolless | 4:09 AM

As I shift the drop cloth under myself, I get up to stretch out my aching back. I’ve been in this hunched position for a good three hours now, repainting a thrift store find shelf. This little apartment doesn’t have a balcony or regular garage so I kind of have to fudge it. The drop cloth and this blue tarp are all I have to work with, but it’s better than nothing.

I have gotten some clear tarps before but they tended to be so clear I never would notice where the thing ended on the carpet causing a few (hopefully) unnoticeable painting mistakes. This shelf though will look so boss once it is touched up. Shelves just make hordes of books, video games, and movie memorabilia look so good. The scuffs were already sanded out, the pits evened out, just gotta wait till it dries now.
