Using What I've Got

So Micah and I are getting ready to move into the home we are going to rent, and I'm feeling like I need a change when it comes to my furniture. But unfortunately I don't have the finances to go buy new things. So...what I decided to do is use what I already have and just mix it up a little! And because I'm having so much fun, I wanted to post about the changes I am making. I'm trying to do everything the cheap way! And since most of my friends are frugal like me, I thought you guys would enjoy. ;)

My first finished project was to update my cheap bookshelves I bought from WalMart 5 years ago. I realized that some of my wrapping paper I bought 3 years ago matches the colors I'm doing for my living room perfectly. I had the idea to just use spray adhesive and basically make the wrapping paper into wallpaper for the backside of the bookshelves. So I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the Elmer's Spray Adhesive, and got started! From start to finish, it literally took me 20 minutes to do TWO bookshelves. So fast and easy, I can't believe I didn't do it sooner.

Have a great day! ~Meghan
