Shelves made with paint bucket

 
With the hope of keeping the game room in order, I made those shelf with paint buckets. It's easy and economic to do, and it gives a place to store smalls items.

Con la esperanza de mantener la sala de juego en orden, hice estas repisas con cubetas de pintura. Es muy fácil y económico de hacer, y da un lugar para guardar los objetos pequeños.


 A small tutorial / un pequeño tutorial:

Clean and remove label of the bucket, cut the top part (using a saw or an electric saw...be careful).
Paint the outside with a paint for plastic.
Make two holes for the screw and strengthen the back with a piece of wood.
 
Limpiar y quitar la etiqueta de la cubeta, cortar la parte superior (con una sierra o una sierra eléctrica ... ten cuidado). 
Pintar el exterior con una pintura especial para plástico. 
Hacer dos agujeros para los tornillos y fortalecer la parte de atras con un trozo de madera.


Fix in the wall with with screws and plugs.
Fijar en la pared con tornillos y taquetes.
 

Et voila!

    1. I love it too, it's Little Red Riding Hood and when you turns it there is a grandmother/wolf's doll, awesome! But no, I didn't made it... it comes from the Lilliputiens - www.lilliputiens.be - This is a Belgian brand but their products are sold in several places and they also have an online shop.
