So, well over a month ago, we decided to come up with a free solution to my magazine bonanza while keeping them close at hand, creating a beverage perch, and making it possible for Mom to squeeze by in her wheelchair to join us for DVDs.
I decided we should live with the configuration for a bit before buying it a ring.
It did the job, but we need a little pizazz here, right?
So out came the magazines...from as far back as a decade.
Hey, don't judge.
This is a job for those of us with no cold white stuff on the ground.
We taped off the crates and gave the lips a coat of Rustoleum Gloss Black spray paint.
The inside 4 sides also got 3 light coats.
We largely shunned the back wall.
Allow to dry. When the paint no longer rubs off on a convenient Feline Overlord, you're ready to proceed to the next step.
Have a minion measure that unadorned back wall
Free Garbage Spokesmodel.
Cut some wrapping paper to fit, adding 2 inches to the measurement.
Relax, my lack of commitment will come shining through any minute.
Place the paper FACE DOWN in the crate and fold the edges to give you a perfect, smooth fit.
Turn the paper over and secure it to the back of the crate using looped tape or double sided tape.
Easily changeable with the seasons, your mood, or the likelihood that one of the cats will shred the paper in an evil fit of tuna withdrawal.
We'll decide on a permanent arrangement and bolt this baby.
Somebody make sure my drill is charged please while we play with blocks.
