This is a project that we made quite a while ago. I realized we had never posted pictures, so I thought I would. We found the tutorial from Make it and Love it. I took a picture of my Mrs. Potato Head. We made other parts, so I am hoping the other crafters on this blog will add their pics, too!

The shelf I bought didn't have a back on it, so I went to Home Depot to the clearance wood section (best section in the entire world!) and found a thin wood backing for $0.51. My dad cut the back to fit the shelf.
I covered each little shelf with a different scrapbook paper and mod podged the whole thing.
Then I bought small wooden knobs and circular wooden things (I know, my mind is drawing tons of blanks) and spray painted them black. Then I figured out where would work best to put the knobs on the back board.I used for of the circular wooden things and one knob and rummaged through my dad's screws and found 4 that would be a good fit for the knob and then I screwed it all in.
This is what the back looked like after screwing in the knobs. Then I nailed the back onto the shelf and respray painted the sides, so the back sides would be black as well. I took some of these teeth wall hangers and hammered them in, one on each side.
This is what the knobs looked like on the inside. The sides are really deep, and I wanted to be able to add more jewelry. That's why I added the circular wooden things. I think it turned out alright.
And this is the final product!! Once we move to Arizona this will have a much better place on my wall!!
