If you have been reading my blog this week, then you know that my boys love Minecraft and that I have been making them a homework station in their bedroom. After I built their crafting table, I wanted to build some shelves for the wall to help them organize everything. I decided to do some very simple and easy shelves. I love how they turned out and they are so nice to have up on the wall to help organize their room!
This is how I made them:
The first thing I did was painted some pieces of wood that were 12"x42" gray.
Then with my Silhouette I cut out a design of squares. Everything was random this time. I cut it out of vinyl.
Instead of just cutting the vinyl, I cut straight through the backing paper too. I set the blade at a 4 (instead of 2) to do it.
I taped the vinyl onto the wood (with the backing paper on) and then painted all the different squares different colors: black, dark gray, light gray and white.
I rotated the vinyl sheet and continued to paint the squares onto the board. Once again, very random. But I did use the same paint with each square (so the colors would mix onto the board). Then on the edges I painted little squares, once again randomly,
Once it was all dry, I screwed each shelf onto mounting brackets and then onto the wall.
The design is supposed to look like cobblestone or gravel.
I decorated the shelves with some of their toys, some buckets and the creeper book ends that I made.
Here's another view of it. You can see the large Minecraft signs I made for them last year.
And here it is with the crafting table. We all LOVE how it looks in their room and they are excited to do some homework on it.
