shelf liner

marcie has some furniture covered in plastic, in the guest bedroom. all of the shelves are lined with… shelf liners. she dusts every single day. she changes her air filter much more frequently than suggested, as well as the water filter in her fridge. she has a hepa air filter in every room (those tall weird fans). there is a shoe rack hy the door, and even then she has disposable flip flops for guests. no dirty ass socks or feet. no carpet, carpet is the devil. all hardwood, save for the bathroom and kitchen.

Hey! I can't remember if I thanked you or not, but I'm the one with the new baby bunny and you recc'ed I get carpeting so he'd stop sliding? I picked up a few rolls of these vinyl shelf liner things (they didn't have any safe carpet) and now he's running laps all over the place. No more sliding and lots of binkies!! So thank you so much <3

Oh that’s so wonderful!! Thank you so much for the update, I’m so glad to hear about your happy bun :)

Fabric Paint Tutorial: Shelf Paper Method

I know there are a million tutorials on shirt painting out there, but I’ve never seen anyone use this technique, and for me it makes things way easier and neater!

You’ll need: Adhesive shelf liner (preferably clear), a cutting board, something to cut with, fabric paint, the shirt itself, and a Sharpie

Step 1: Trace the image you want onto the shelf paper (for this I just taped a piece to my laptop screen)

Step 2: Cut it out!! I find an X-Acto knife works best 

Step 3: Peel the backing off the shelf paper and stick it to your shirt. It’s important that you do this while you’re wearing the clothes to get the positioning just right, especially when working with fabrics that have more stretch!

Step 4: Paint it! This is where using shelf paper comes in handy. Since it’s essentially a giant sticker, it’s very easy to stick down all the ends and get a clean final product! Make sure to stretch it over the cutting board first, or else the paint will stick both layers of the shirt together

Ta-da!!

Worked on another step for my sushi restaurant this morning.

Spray painted two sets of the Deadluxe high school table and chairs with a outdoor plastic furniture spray paint to give it a uniform look.

The flooring is just basic scrapbooking stock and the walls are lined with self adhesive shelf liner.
