One more thing

I forgot to mention my other wee project that I had planned to do. When I picked up The Table yesterday, I also picked up two nasty brown spice racks.



Yep, nasty.
So of course in between math and reading this morning I had a quick session with my trusty brush and can of paint.

Here is the end result.





I know - you are wondering "why would she put a spice rack on the wall?"
It's simple. I hate mess. Hate it. So.... this is the way that I deal with the stack of books which end up on the bed, on the floor and which inevitably go 'crash!' in the night.
Cool huh!

  4. What a great idea! I have very limited space on my bedside table and I am always piling stuff on top of whichever book I am currently reading. This would be a great idea to hold my current book! Thanks for the inspiration!
