Hello there!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

I sure did! Anytime I'm with my family, I am one happy girl!

Another Pinterest friendly picture!

Today I want to share with you this quick and easy solution I did several weeks back.

I got tired of opening the bottom of my china cabinet and seeing nothing fun.

So, being the "I need to do something about this NOW" girl that I am, I used whatever I had on hand at the time to find a quick solution. No time to run to the store when this sudden need to change something happens!

What did I have on hand? 
Gift wrapping paper and double sided tape!


- CLEAN YOUR SHELVES FIRST! Any dust will make it hard for the double sided tape to stick to.
You can clean your shelves by using a damp cloth to wipe it down and then just let it air dry (or bust out your blow-dryer if you impatient)

- Get your wrapping paper, scissors and double sided tape out

- Measure your shelves

- Cut your wrapping paper according to your measurements. Add a few more inches to the width if you are planning on folding it over the edge of your shelf like I did.

- Add double sided tape to the back of your wrapping paper

- Gently lay your wrapping paper onto your shelf and smooth it over with your hands

- If you get any small bubbles just use a pin to poke a hole and release the air in it so it lays flat

Pretty fun, huh?

And in case you're wondering, I purchased my fun print wrapping paper at good ol' Target! Love that place!

Now you don't have to wait to find the perfect shelf liner pattern! Your possibilities just expanded to the gift wrapping isle!
