Etagere HACK!

You've no idea how excited I was to come across this blog post by Amy of Commona My House blog. Seriously, I squealed like a little baby and that's saying something for me, I'm not someone who squeals lightly. But this, this deserved it. You see, I have wanted an etagere in my master bedroom for ages. But the $4,000 Jonathan Adler version I covet, is not going to happen any time soon. There are just too many other priorities, like food and shelter. You get the idea.

Which is why this DIY idea is so fabulous. I LOVE making something from nothing and this seems like a pretty straightforward project and gives me the look I'm after at a price I can stomach. It's a $90 shelving unit with $12 worth of spray paint to take it from this:

This is SO happening in my workshop this weekend! Will post pics of my finished product as soon as it's complete!
