I was trying to think of a way I could bump up the cute-ness factor on his boring black bookshelves without painting them.
Enter in ...wrapping paper!
I had a roll of this pretty fun wrapping paper and thought it would make a great background.
I took out the shelves and laid the bookshelf down on the floor. Then I hot-glued the paper (cut to size first) down around the edges. Not a permanent fix, but it will work until I either replace the bookshelf with something else or paint it for real.
