Slowly but surely, I will be caught up in posting all the little changes I've made around here. This one is quite simple, and you can find several tutorials out there but they really aren't necessary if you have basic sewing skills. And believe me, my sewing skills are über-basic.
A while ago, I went a little bookshelf crazy and ended up with more than I needed, so I started using the extras for storage in my closet and placed one outside on my balcony. At the time, I didn't mind if it became damaged from the elements so I didn't seal it or anything else for protection. I used this bookshelf to display plants and also store my gardening tools, pots and soil. This wasn't the most attractive display so I used some leftover teal fabric and stitched up some quick little curtains. I purchased a small tension rod from Big Lots and was good to go.
I will spare you the “before” photo of the bookshelf, including the wasps that started nesting under one of the shelves. Fortunately, the nest was mysteriously destroyed before I got a chance to have it taken care of. (Images of an exterminating wiseguy comes to mind.) Perhaps by a bat or other animal??? This is a much better display plus I don’t have to worry about the wasps coming back.
Thanks for visiting! Let’s stay connected!
