Do you remember last week when I was complaining about the fact that I wasn't looking forward to decorating my IKEA magazine files?
These magazine files.
Well, I'm pleased to report that they weren't so bad after all. I gave them a couple coats of black spray paint, of which two cans was not enough. Three was the magic number.
Spray paint dries quickly, so soon after painting I was able to apply some pretty school themed scrapbook paper on the spines of the files. I applied the paper with Mod Podge, and then I gave it two more coats of Mod Podge over the top and that was it.
I'm almost embarrassed to tell you that I'm probably going to label them with Post-It notes to start. I don't want to commit to using them for what I had planned because so often my brilliant ideas don't pan out the way I think they should.
So, if they work, I'll go ahead and make some pretty labels worthy of the cuteness. Until then, Shabby Town.
