Welcome to another month of the Craft Room Destash Challenge. This month for the challenge I have finally taken two quirky little shelves out of my craft room and painted them for two fun and functional bathroom shelves.

Last year I found these fun and quirky shelves on a clearance rack at Michael for only $2 each. I had no idea what I was going to do with them but I liked how different and fun they were. So of course they have sat in my craft room for almost a year because they were an impulse buy.
I finally decided to finish them for this month’s Craft Room DeStash Challenge. Now I have some fun and functional bathroom shelves for my master bathroom.

These shelves were just so adorable and different. And a great price. Never mind that at the time I bought them I had no idea what I was going to do with them or any certain place in mind to use them. I just liked them.
As you can see in the beginning photo I even started painting one of them after I first bought them but of course it sat on the shelf unfinished for months.
So the quirky shelves came home with me and sat in the craft room all this time. Recently I have decided to redo the decor in my master bathroom. I have been looking for inspiration on Pinterest and have decided that I like the garden look of succulents. On a different trip to Michaels, I bought these miniature faux succulents that are just the right size to display on these quirky shelves.
I painted the shelves with acrylic paints. White on the outside to blend with the color of the bathroom walls, and grey on the inside to give it a pop of color and to blend with other colors in the room in the towels and the shower curtain.
Since the shelves are made of pine, it took several coats of the acrylic paint to cover each side and to make the paint look smooth. Afterwards, I also applied three layers of Waterbased MinWax Polycrylic finish in semi-gloss to each shelf.
I hung these two fun shelves on a side wall of the tub surround and decorated them with wash clothes, a candle, and tiny faux succulents which I also purchased from Michaels and part of my craft stash.
In the end, I have cleared up space on the shelves in my craft room and didn’t spend any money on finally getting these done.

March is National Craft Month so it is a good time to learn a new craft!

Very cute! Nice find’
OMG, they are so cute! What a fun addition to the bathroom
CUTE! I love that the shelves have all those fun angles! ‘Great idea to paint the inside black and the outside white. It helps the angles be more visible. Well done! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

What a fun addition to your bathroom!
I love the quirky look of your shelves, Donna! And I think you chose the perfect place to hang them too! They make me want to think and what better place to think than in the bathroom where there’s peace and quite! Great job!
Donna, I love how you rescued those shelves last year even you had no clue what to do with them just yet. I am the same way! I have so many things up in my attic or in my craft room that are waiting for their chance to shine. The colors you chose are perfect!
Thanks Habiba. I almost donated them to our Church rummage sale but now I’m glad I didn’t.

Oh, so clever! Love the fun shapes
The shelves look great in your bathroom. The contrasting paint colors was a good choice. I do the same with buying things and not knowing just how I’m going to use them. It’s always great to figure something out.
Thanks Beverly. I so agree but right now I am avoiding thrift store and craft stores until I get more projects out of the way first.
Those make really cute towel holders!
Yes they do. Thanks for visiting Kristie.
