Now, back to the shelf liner. The Chevron pattern is all the rage right now. Although I have to admit I didnt want to invest the $$ in fabric or bedding. For $5.99, I knew I could use it to add a playful look to Alyssa's room. Did I line shelves with it? N-O.
I needed to give my old nightstand a new life. I used this furniture when I was a child and now my oldest daughter has a few pieces of the set in her room. Afer testing the liner on the wood to be sure it was actually removeable, I put my plan into action.
This particular shelf liner is easy to work with. I cut a piece of liner slightly larger than the drawer front. After removing the backing I began in the center of the drawer, pressing and smoothing the liner, working to the outer edges. Finally I cut the excess edges with a utility knife. I covered the wooden knobs with jute string ($1.00 from the Dollar Store) and a hot glue gun. Much less expensive than replacing all the knobs!
I added a few accessories we have been collecting for Alyssa's room:
Wood and Brass Boat: $7 TJ Maxx
Mercury Glass Candle holder: $2 Tuesday Morning
Large Clam Capiz Shell: $6 TJ Maxx
Capiz Shell Frame: $9 TJ Maxx
After a few adjustments and the addition of the DIY artwork, the nightstand is complete!
I think the artwork really finishes the look. My daughter loves her trendy new nightstand and I love that I didn't have to paint it! lol
I cant wait to show you another project using shelf liner....
