DIY Project – Book Rack

May 24, 2011 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized
My weekend project to remake an old magazine rack for Stella’s room was a success! Here’s a picture of the ‘before’. See below for the step by step transformation into a little girl-friendly holder for books, coloring supplies, etc.

I chose these four prints of Snow and Graham papers; one for each of the four different cubbies on the magazine rack:

I measured the front of the cubbies and cut out four rectangles of paper to match the size:
Because I had cut the height of the rectangles a little longer than the size of the cubbies, I turned over the edges and secured them down with double-sided tape. I also added tape along the edge of the two short sides to adhere it to the front of the cubbies:

I think the mix of prints will work great in her print filled big girl room, and it looks especially sweet filled with her books:
