Dressed Up Bookshelf for my Craft Room

You will need contact paper in your desired print, I found mine at Wal-Mart.

Remove the shelves from your book shelf.  To make it easier to stick the paper down, I measure out the length I need and cut it.  Next I roll it print side in.

Start removing the backing, keeping the contact paper rolled.  This will allow you to stick the first edge down without having to worry about the rest of the paper getting loose and sticking to everything including itself.

Smooth out the paper as you go, pulling the backing off slowly as needed until you have the entire sheet secured.

Repeat this process until the back is covered.  You can also use this reverse roll if you need to attach a poster to an adhesive board for displays.

The slower you go the easier it is to correct, so take your time.

Pop your shelves back in and adorn with knick-knacks and shenanigans.

I will be putting damask print caddies from Thirty-One and other black organizers on here.  the two bookshelves next to it will also be painted black and may get the shelf lining as well .  This took hardly any time and is a great way to dress up some inexpensive shelves.

Happy crafting, and a very Happy New Year! Pin It Now!
