My friend Lindsay threw down the gauntlet for a $5 challenge, and while my crafting skills aren't anything to write home about, I knew I could come up with something pretty original. The execution wasn't perfect, but boy did I make myself laugh!
In preparation for Clare's baby shower, I did a lot of online research for fun ideas...while I used absolutely ZERO of them for her, I found one for me. You know those cute closet dividers for infants? The ones that say newborn, 1-3 mos, 3-6 mos, etc? Well, I realized a great way to keep my work wardrobe organized would be to have one that said this week, last week, and then I came up with a special divider for the back of the closet too, which is revealed below!
Here's my breakdown. From the .99 Store, I found 3 wooden door knob hangers for .89 each, a bottle of pink craft paint for .50, and a spool of ribbon for .50. At home, I had a black paint pen, some white wall paint, and some green wall paint (from the kitchen!). So, all in all, I made this silly little craft/brilliant closet organizing system for $3.67 (before tax). Not too shabby, if I do say so myself!
I painted the dividers up, drew some silly designs, and added ribbon to the top in order for them to stand out amongst my suits and full-length ball gowns (what, like you divas don't have several in your closet!), and WAH-LA, I had a finished project!
Well, enough of what I think about my project, what do YOU think about my project? : )
What do you think?! Is it a winning idea? Not really? I'm okay with that, but what I really want to know is: did it make you laugh??? : )
