Yea,...you could bite the bullet and just buy yourself a new set. But, as teachers, we already buy so much for our classrooms that I just draw the line with furniture.
What to do? Beautiful those ugly shelves,...of course!
This bookshelf make-over was done by: adding some bright laminated butcher paper on top, red and orange washi tape was used on the thin edges, and an extra strip of spotted border was used to unite the whole look. Yea!
Told you it was easy!
