Bookcase Makeover - DIY IKEA Hack

Bookcase: Ikea / Paper: Hobby Lobby / Purses: Target and Rebecca Minkoff / Apothecary Jar: Amazon / Gold Confetti: Amazon / Gold Frame: Goodwill DIY / Print: Mad Kitty Media c/o / J: Homegoods / Mirror Box: Homegoods (similar here) / Books: Kardashian Konfidental and May You Live a Life/ Boxes: DIY Ikea
You guys have heard me talk about how I've been redesigning my office, and I am so close for it to be done. Some of you have been leaving me comments on my Instagram on what are some tips for redesigning an office. Here's my advice. When putting a room together you can get caught up in going over budget, and all of a sudden you bank account screams "NO MORE." With putting my office together I have definitely learned how to stick to a budget, and how to be creative with my money. 

With that said let me introduce to you my IKEA GERSBY bookcase makeover. This whole project is super easy, and cost me $55 (I did two bookcases each $25 - wrapping paper $2.99 because I used a coupon). The reason why I chose wrapping paper because it's cheap, but you can also use wall paper if you would like. If you are going to be doing 1 book case it will cost you less than $30. I love how this bookcase gives a flare to my room, and jazzes up any boring space. Lets get started!

What you need:
  • IKEA GERSBY shelf - $24.99
  • Wrapping Paper of your choice or wallpaper / I used this one here $4.99 at Hobby Lobby (use a 40% off coupon)
  • Double sided tape 
  • Hammer
  • Hard surface to do your project on
  • Exacto knife or any other type of a super sharp blade

Step 1

Lay down the back on the board with white side up on a hard surface. 

Step 2

Take double sided tape, and tape along the outer edges of the board. Place two additional ones on the board dividing the board into thirds. By placing tape in the middle of the board it anchor the paper better in the center.
 

Step 3

Starting at one end of your board place your your paper onto the tape while holding onto the roll part. Once you have tapped your starting position keep the roll in your hand, and walk back until you reach the other end of the board. From here make sure there is tension in the paper, and lay it down on the board. Press firmly on the paper at the end of the board anchoring the paper to the tape. Next you want to take an exact knife and cut the paper from the roll. Once the roll is out of the way start pressing firmly on the paper where all the tape is on the board. 

Step 4

You want to flip the board so the paper is on the bottom. CAUTION: The board is meant to fold up as a trifold so you need to make sure it doesn't fold when you flip it. 

Step 5

Take the Exacto knife, and trace over the edges of the board cutting away the paper

Step 6

Read the Ikea directions, and put together the bookcase

And there you go! Your very own girly bookcase! Let me know if you have any questions.
