Quick Fix

A while ago, when our Walmart still had a craft section my mom bought this asian fabric to make throw pillows for our livingroom. In my mothers true character, she never got around to making them so she just gave me the fabric. I have actually been trying to add more color into my livingroom but it was too pretty not to use and it is so my style.

Here is our entertainment/storage center, not to mention the pile of toys that we have yet to get a toy chest for. I can't stand looking through the glass and seeing the dvds, extra wipes, diapers and other things we store in there.

Super quick fix, I cut two pieces of fabric just big enough to cover the glass. All I did was staple it on the inside and ran some glue on the edges of the fabric so it wouldnt fray. Here my son is checking out the work, he said pretty so I got his approval.

Tada! Hidding my junk.

No more mess, well ok the mess is still there but you cant see it.

It took less than 10 mins for a quick and easy fix!
It actually took longer for me to post this than it did to do the project!

That's a terrific idea, I love it! What kind of toy storage are you looking for? I'll keep my eyes peeled for you. BTW, we missed you on Saturday. It wasn't as fun scaling rocks and treking through tall grass without you. :(

That's a perfect solution for such a beautiful fabric! It's a great way to hide mess and incorporate it into your room! I used a spring-tension rod to hide a mess of stuff under my desk. It does the trick wonderfully!
