Those open shelves. Hate them. I can't really fit baskets in there, plus i think baskets would give this room too much of a beachy vibe, and then where would i store my rip roarin fun games?
Enter scrapbook paper to the rescue! I was all ready to mod podge these puppies up, but you know what, i just worked all day. On Saturday. No need to glue or mod podge, when one has tape! What an even simpler solution! So easy in fact...a caveman could do it!
I don't know about you, but i find this much less distracting.
Close up of the paper, which i realize can easily be substituted for gift wrap or wallpaper. i might upgrade to wrapping paper and just do the whole lid. I probably should have done that to begin with. Whoops!
I'm linking this incredibly difficult and time consuming project to a whole slew of parties, cuz it's pretty kickass. and cheap. and easy.
