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.
