Tween Room Makeover: Side Project Recover Magazine Holders How To
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.
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.
