Are you ready for another round of Bright Ideas???
Today I wanted to share a fun way to update some of those old bookshelves.
You'll need a few things for this project:
-an old bookshelf
-some pretty fabric in your favorite color/pattern
-a staple gun
As I was setting up my classroom this year, I went shopping for some fabric that matched my peacock theme. I ended up finding a great sale of just some solid color fabric, so I bought a ton of it.
Then I didn't know what to do with all the pretty fabric!
I had seen a couple other teachers use fabric on their bookshelves, so I decided to give it a go.
First, I enlisted the hubby's help :)
He started by taking off the back panel of the bookshelf.
We cut the fabric to match the size of the back panel. Holding the fabric against the back of the shelf, we stapled it on the top and sides.
Then we put the back panel back on.
Voila! Instant pop of color to an otherwise blah bookshelf.
Now, I chose to just use solid color fabric because I had so much of it. But these look really great with some pretty patterned fabric! It stands out much better.
Check out these other fabulous bright ideas, friends!
