Everyone has seen the pins where people add wallpaper, or paint stencils, or simply paint the backs of their cabinets and shelves to add some depth and more interest. Well, I wanted to do something similar, but I didn’t have a lot of time to do it (if only I didn’t require sleep!) and didn’t want to spend a lot of $$ on it either (I’m just plain ‘ol cheap). Enter $0.50 a roll Target wrapping paper.
Yes, people. $0.50!!! And its cute wrapping paper!! It was originally just $1, but luckily for my cheap butt, it was half off at the dollar spot after Christmas! Whoo Hoo!!
I have my Great Grandmother’s china cabinet which I turned liquor cabinet that I wanted to add something more to (Close your mouth, she would want me to use it, and not just leave it in a corner somewhere, even if it means it is now a liquor cabinet.)
This is the before:
It was cluttered and all black. Not a lot of detail at all. It definitley needed something!
And this is the after:
Y’all, it was SO simple and easy. I was super lazy that day, so it had to be if it was going to get done! I just held the wrapping paper up between the shelves to get a rough estimate of the height I needed to cut. Then, I cut it and put it between each shelf against the back of the cabinet, took a razor blade and cut off the excess. The lines are not perfect, but who can tell?! And all I did to hold it onto the back was scotch tape. Seriously! Just plain, old, some generic brand, tape! And its held up so far for 2 weeks! What do ya’ll think?
And that’s my wrapping paper lined cabinet. What do you think?
