Fabric Bookshelf Tutorial

Remember when I posted about giving Jason's vinyl bookshelf a much needed makeover?
Well, I finally did it.
And it was an easy fix.  The best part was that you can change the fabric with ease to make it fit with any room decor!  Love it.

  • Cotton Fabric 
  • Measuring Tape
  • Scissors/Rotary Cutter
  • Self-healing Rotary Board
  • Pen and Paper
  • Double-sided tape

  1. Measure the length and width of the backboard of each separate shelf.  If you have 5 shelves, you need to measure 5 backboard sections, unless they're all the same.  Double check, just in case.
  2. Jot down the measurements with your pen and paper so you won't forget!
  3. Once your fabric is ironed, lay it upon the rotary board and cut accordingly to your measurements.  You might want to give 1/8th inch of excess fabric, just in case your fabric is kind of stretchy.  You can always go back and cut the fabric more if you need to.
  4. Apply double-sided tape to the corners and middle boarder of each backboard section of the bookshelf.
  5. Stick your cut fabric onto the backboard.  Feel free to readjust as necessary.
  6. Fin!

Idaho Spud? Charleston Chew?

I'm in love!  This is a graphic organizer of every chocolate bar you could think of, and what it is made of.  Amazing.  Even the good old Idaho Spud was listed.

Lack of Ladies?

From what I counted, there were only 15/109 female musicians represented.  I think this is a really cool depiction of hairstyles of modern popular music, however, it shows the lack of influential ladies in the music industry. 
What do you think?

Finland's gift to expecting mothers.

I just found out about this lovely idea at ohdeedoh.
Apparently Finland gives all of it's expecting mothers a baby box.  What a wonderful way welcome the little ones.
Good thinkin', Finland!
