DIY Decoupage Book Case

There’s nothing better than finding that perfect item while thrifting, than finding that
item for FREE…

Yep I found these babies on the side of the road just begging to be mine, so I grab them of course not knowing what I’d do with them yet but they had potential!

 I was originally thought I’d paint them but…. then I came across the most amazing wrapping paper at @HomeSense and I knew just what to do with it.

I had help from not only Bryer but also my good friend Cathy, who is one of the
most creative people I know. You need to check out and follow her @Cricket Lane Vinyl!

Items needed for this wrapping papered shelf DIY

  1. Shelf or other items to be DIY
  2. Wrapping Paper found here and here
  3. Mod Podge Glue  here
  4. Foam Paint Brush here
  5. Scissors
  6. Ruler and measuring tape
  7. Cutting Mat
  8. Putty Knife here

#1.  I washed, dried all the shelves and repaired where needed. My handy DeWalt cordless impact drill is the bomb for these kinds of diy’s found here

#2. I measured and cut wrapping paper to fit the shelf.

#3. Apply a layer of mod podge to the surface your covering, I only do a little at a time so I can smooth with no bubbles and slowly too. Smooth with Putty knife.

Tip#1: It helps to cut your big pieces of wrapping paper into smaller easy to manage pieces for fewer bubbles after your done.

#2: Also be careful not to use too much glue as your paper will tear easier

#4. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge water base sealer all over the top of the shelf for added protection against everyday wear and tear.

#5 Finished DIY
