Lined Bookshelf Tutorial

How easy is this! I think the pictures tell a lot of the story here.

This is Ava's new Hemnes bookshelf from Ikea and I thought I'd give it a bit of a facelift. So effective and SO easy!

Wallpaper/scrapbook paper/wrapping paper
Masking tape
Cardboard (the bookshelf packaging came in handy!!)
Measuring tape

I firstly measured the spaces at the back of the bookshelf, then cut out my cardboard in the correct dimensions.

I then cut out my wallpaper allowing about an inch around the rim

Lay your cardboard over the back of your wallpaper then tape it down.

Pop it into your shelves're done!

A pretty handy nap time project!!!
