New shelves in my daughter's room

Wow! Has it been a long time, or what? Good grief. So, in keeping with the title of this blog, I'm sure nobody cares, but here are some pics of the shelves I painted for my little 4-year-old girl. I always hear about these great deals everyone else gets, and finally got one myself. These shelves were in the Clearance aisle at Michael's for only $3 each! I just used acryllic paint and painted a bold color first (one green and one dark red), then painted over that with antique white and sanded. On the top I just mod podged some scrapbook paper cut to size, then put two layers of varnish over it.
My only beef is if you look close (you can't see it in the pics) you can see the seam where the two papers meet. And on a note of awwwww... those flowers are the first flowers my hubby gave me when we were dating. Everyone together now... awwwwwww. :)

I didn't know Ava collected those dolls. I have a bunch that I collected throughout my life and Trin collects them too.
