DIY:: Bookcase Makeover

10:54:00 AM


I am so embarrassed to show the before picture of the bookcase. It was such a mess and so glad we finally got around to give it a makeover! I pretty much shoved everything in there so here's the before picture.



Husband putting it all together and he got a personal assistant to help him!
Cabinet Paper found at Marshals $4.99 (2 rolls)

It is so refreshing to finally have a clean and organized bookcase. With just a pattern background or even fabric, you can transform something boring into something stylish and modern. The best part? Total cost: $2.50! Thanks for visiting!

  23. What kind of paper was that? Wrapping paper? how did you adhere it to the bookshelf?

  24. It's cabinet paper so it's sticky in the back. I found them at Marshalls, Im sure you can find them at TJ max, homegoods or even Ross.
