I went to GW yesterday to donate some clothes (7 bags, people!!) and as usual, I drove around front and went in to give them some more of my $$$. I found this charging station for 50 cents.
I was planning to leave it as is, but after I got home and started looking at it, I thought, "Why not dress it up a little?" I planned to make things easy and just color the edges black with a Sharpie before putting the paper on, but that didn't work out so well. I ended up just going around the edges a few times with a small brush and some black paint. I'll have you know that I just recently realized that I don't have to paint the whole object if I'm just gonna cover most of it in paper... can you believe that???
Anywho, it took me forever to decide what paper to use and I finally ended up choosing a sheet that I'd picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby for 30 cents.
This is the end result, which I love, love love!
