Trash to treasure ink pad shelf..

Hi everyone! I thought I'd share this little project with you. A couple of months ago when I bought my new furniture for the craft room there were all these little slats that I was suppose to interlock and place in the bottom of a couple of my drawers. Well when I did that I found that I lost a lot of space that way and it was better organized the way I had done those 2 drawers without them. So I didn't want to throw them away because I was thinking that surely I could make something useful out of them. So I knew I wanted something that would look nice sitting out to put my ink pads in and that is how this all came together. The wooden slats all interlocked, some chipboard cut to fit the back. Add some pretty scrapbooking paper, a little paint on the edges instead of white ink and lastly I added some doily trim that I punched on cereal box weight chipboard. I love how it turned out as well as the fact that my inks are much closer to me now at my work surface but not to yucky for when company comes.
Hope that everyone is having a great day/night. Come on back soon I have more pictures that I look forward to sharing with you all.
