We all know I have a cookbook addiction. Well, my daughter has a Duck Tape addiction.
For weeks, she has been buying rolls of brightly colored or decorated Duck Tape to transform headbands, canvas bags and flip-flops into usable works of art. During our three-day weekend, we transformed her old dresser (purchased for $40 ast Wal-Mart in 2001) from an ugly eyesore to the coolest dresser ever.
In all, it took us about 10 rolls of Duck Tape-brand tape (purchased at our local Michaels and Target — total cost about $36, although we have a lot of the plain colored tape leftover) and three hours of labor to finish the dresser. When you consider about 45 minutes of that was spent cleaning the dresser, trying to scrape off all the stickers my daughter had attached to it over the years, that’s not a lot of time at all.
It was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning, especially as my pre-teen now considers me cool. It won’t last, of course, but I’ll still take it!
