Join us as our team undertakes a room makeover. We’re upgrading this big girl room, which has already evolved from a baby room with a crib, through toddler bed, to bunk beds. After 10 years of transitioning, this room needed a serious wall to wall makeover to become a great tween hangout with the potential for simple upgrades through the teen years., pub-2261152276079224, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

One of the ways we kept this project on budget was to work with furnishings and decor items that we already had in place. We added black chalkboard paint to a section of the bed and book shelves to integrate those pieces into the new color scheme and design. Then we undertook a couple of small decor projects: updating the fabric on the memory board (still in process as of this writing) and recovering the cardboard magazine holders. Here’s a step by step guide, so you can do this at your home or office.

We purchased adhesive backed shelving paper in a bold black and white print that worked perfectly with our new design elements. Using a ruler, scissors and a little patience, we basically wrapped the existing magazine holders in the new paper. We used the ruler to burnish the adhesive paper and to remove any bubbles or puckers. We also scored the curves with tiny scissor cuts to keep the look clean.

You can watch the room makeover process in the video below. Or read more about The Design, The Process, The Details, The Side Projects in this series of articles spelling out our step by step process for this room make over project.


Adhesive backed shelving paper, scissors, ruler & magazine holders “before”.


Contact paper has grid on reverse side for easy cutting.


Cut pieces that are small enough to work with, but large enough to minimize the number of seams.


Peel backing away in small sections to avoid getting the paper stuck to itself.


Place seams away from obvious stress points like corners to extend the life of your project.


Work in sections. Smooth and peel as you go.


Another view of the smoothing and peeling process.


Notice the small amount of paper used to cover edges – about 1/2″


Using the ruler to burnish the contact paper.


Burnishing helps to maximize adhesion.


Burnishing also removes air bubbles and wrinkles giving you professional looking results.


For this project we did not recover bottoms or insides of holders.


Wrapping the bottom with about 3/8″ overlap.


Better to trim excess rather than wrap the insides.


Make small cuts along the curves to get a smooth edge.


One done! A before & after pic.


The “new” magazine holders.


Grouped together, these magazine holders make a nice impact in the new room.
