Making an affordable bookcase beautiful
Hey! I wanted to share this easy update to a Walmart bookcase. I have had this bookcase for years but, it is still sold at the store. I will also add links for what you will need. The current price is $27.84 on their website. Really this is a no-brainer to make an affordable bookcase beautiful.
step 1 – follow the directions to put the bookcase together. Lay out the back and wipe it off. Make sure there is nothing that would leave bumps in the paper.
step 2 – roll out the paper. The paper is not wide enough to cover the whole back. Then peel off a corner of the paper’s backing. This is so you can move the paper until it is straight. Try to get it as straight as you can. (it don’t have to be perfect) Once you have that one stuck down, you can start the second strip. I overlapped to make a seamless look. Match it up the best you can. Just peel and stick. I did run over it with a plastic wallcovering smoothing tool. To cut the paper I used a utility knife. You can use scissors or a razor blade. Whatever works for you! One word of caution. Put the cardboard from the box under the paper when you cut it. this will protect the flooring from your blade.
step 3 – finish following the directions and tack the back on your bookcase. Then style with your treasures!!
