I was recently inspired by a very cool project by Ali Edwards (found here), so when I came across this little shelf at Goodwill for only $2, I thought I'd try my own version. I'll admit, Ali's is MUCH cooler, but this was a good first try for me.
I removed the wallpaper, painted the outside red, the shelves black, and backed it with kraft paper. I also sanded the edges to allow the white paint to show through along the edges. Gave it a more worn look.
Then, I ordered several 5 x 7 black and white pictures to put into each of the cubes. I had a hard time choosing what to put in there, and finally decided not everything has to be symetrical and even!
I think I may need to replace the upper right photograph, because I didn't crop it quite right...
