Consider this results #3. Not home decor, but crafty as all hell. I saw this:
And I did it:
Yep, in that pile of stuff I showed you on Tuesday, under the linen and ribbon, was this box and a Lego baseplate. A few coats of primer, spray paint, ModgePodge and superglue and Bob is, indeed, your uncle.
I even "improved" on it a bit, by adding a way to hold the thing shut. No one wants a backpack, or car floor, full of loose Lego. No one. So see that little flap of ribbon on the end? It's just a scrap that I stitched some velcro to, leaving a little "tail" to grab on the other side of the velcro:
Then I put the adhesive-backed mate to my velcro on and placed the non-velcro end between the Lego base plate and the box lid. It got pretty well glued in there when I attached the plate to the lid. The velcro bit dangled over. I removed the backing, stuck it on down and she was good to go!
*The decoration of this box was done by putting some pink (of course) paper on it with ModgePodge and then letting the kid stick on a bunch of random scrapbooking pieces that I had in a drawer. The front edge also has her name on it. Then I ModgePodge'd it again. If it seems to show wear and tear I'll coat it all with some poly.
