I love the DIY projects Derek and Lauren do on Wednesdays over at Design*Sponge
. They are vacationing in Hawaii this week, but still had time to post about a great shelf
makeover project straight from their friends' kitchen.
You can spruce up your Ikea shelves
too, simply by covering them with woven grass cloth, or fabric of your choice, paper, or vinyl, and then applying a coat of wood stain. You'll need to follow the directions carefully, being sure that you don't staple
your fingers in the process. Make sure to wear gloves, too, otherwise you'll have a hard time getting the stain off your hands.
Ikea products can be boring, so the shelf makeover is something I definitely need to try. For more Ikea makeovers posted on DIY Life, be sure to check out Francesca's Ikea bike rack hack
