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
- Shelf or other items to be DIY
- Wrapping Paper found here and here
- Mod Podge Glue here
- Foam Paint Brush here
- Ruler and measuring tape
- Cutting Mat
- 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.
