DIY: Home Decor Idea – Lining Shelves


It’s Friday, Friday, Friday. My most favorite day of the week. There is something magical about a Friday. I spend my time dreaming of the endless possibilities of what I can do, or where I will go in the next two days of total freedom from my daily responsibilities of the day to day job. 🙂 At least that is what Friday’s mean to me. Hope you have really fun plans!

I want to show you what I did in our living room. I told you I would share my crazy crafts with you as I dabble in interior decorating in this new house of ours. I am having a blast, but I change my mind frequently. Which isn’t a good thing for my wallet.

Here is a before shot of our living room.

I had the idea to cover the back panels with scrapbook printed paper, until I saw on a fellow blogger’s page the idea of wrapping paper! I scored this thick paper for $2.99 at our local Home Goods.

I love the way this paper gave some depth to this very white space.

Here is a close up of each side. I LOVE the polka dots!

A lot of my home décor, if you are wondering…comes from antique fairs, flea markets, Hobby Lobby, Kirkland’s, Michael’s, Marshall’s, Target, and TJ Maxx.

To fit into the shelves I measured the height and width of the space, once I took the shelves out of the way.

I love mix matched pieces, old and new stuff scrambled together.

I will say this project was very tedious you need a lot of patience (which I don’t possess) to get your measurements just right and to make sure it covers perfectly.

Have a great weekend and hopefully you are having a fantastic summer. 🙂

until next time,

stay cute, stay sweet.

    What a great idea! Love your blog! I’ve nominated you for the Fashionista Award! -Nikkie 🙂

    1. WOW! thank you so much! I can’t wait to check out the award. I am so honored. Thanks again. xoxo

  2. This is so cute, the paper is fab! Also, great shade of blue! So fresh yet still classic 🙂

    1. Ohhh, thank you so much! I was unsure of the blue at first, but it is definitely growing on me. Glad you like it! xoxo

    This is such a great idea! I’m currently working on DIY projects for my house so I might integrate this… 🙂

    1. Thank you! The best part about doing this is being able to change it whenever you want versus using paint, which is more permanent! Stay tuned for more DIY. I will be writing about my ventures with wreath making. 🙂
