As I mentioned in an earlier post Here:
I have been working on a DVD storage project. Well the good news is that I think I’m done. I finally finished this storage project yesterday afternoon. Sorry it took as long as it did but I’ve been in a fibromyalgia flare up for almost two weeks so my pain level is very high.
So without further ado…. Here is what it looked like in the beginning.
Yes. The picture is upside down. Just bear with me. My phone would not let me turn it the right way. So I’m just going to roll with it.
These were just cheap tubs that have attached lids as you can see in the picture. James cut two boards that fit inside for each one and then simply screwed the tubs through the boards into the studs.
First I took black scrapbook paper and made a border around the whole outside perimeter of the tubs. See the picture below.
I attached the scrapbook paper with 3M Spray Adhesive.
It works extremely well. Which this meant that even though I wore gloves I ended up with the adhesive on my skin. You have to understand that I’m a clutz so of course I had adhesive on my hands and partially on my arms. No worries though. It comes off easily when you wash with hot water and soap.
Next I started using printed scrapbook paper to make rows. I wanted to have some designs instead of just one solid color. So I used a pad that was similar to this one on Amazon posted below.
I cut each page in half so my prints wouldn’t be huge blocks. Then I just kept spraying and applying until I was finished. I did do some cuts so they were even with the edge of the doors.
I just kept layering rows to make some what of a quilt pattern. It is not perfect cuts as you can see by my picture.
This has been a very fun project but has been a little time consuming. The whole project took me approximately two hours. And now here is the completed product!
Oh geez! Now it posted the picture sideways. Again, I am not perfect. You can also see my DIY kitty hammocks on the bottom.
The kitties are still getting used to the hammocks but they do like them also. I just decided to utilize the unused space.
As you can see, this was a fun and very useful project. We now have more storage for our DVD collection and it is no longer an eyesore. I hope this inspires you.
What do you use to keep your pets out of your DVDs?
