Hello friends! I’m still on a binge of cleaning stuff out, throwing away junk, selling things, improving them, etc. After being fed up with the state of my cabinet under the sink in my guest bathroom, I took matters into my own hands. It was where I stored all of my cleaning supplies. But it was so dark, and a total disaster.
If you’re new to The Striped House, you should know that I moved around my rooms. My intended family room is now my dining room. So… I have these built ins around the fireplace that had been a catchall for junk. Not anymore!
I cleaned out those built-in cabinets, primed, and painted them. But I wanted to add a little something to it. I originally found a really pretty floral gift paper on sale at TJMaxx for $3. So used it to “wallpaper” the back side of the cabinet. But, after stepping back and taking it in, I realized it wasn’t me.
So I looked for something new, and fell in love with this classic black and white stripe wrapping paper I found at Target for $2!
I measured the back wall of the cabinet and added a half inch on each measurement. I used re-positionable spray adhesive – a very light coat! I positioned one corner of the paper where I wanted it and kept working with it to get it flush with top and left side. So now I’ve got extra on the right and bottom sides. I gently used a plastic putty knife to get the paper snug into the corners. Then used an Exacto Knife to trim the excess.
Easy peezy, huh? And this is appeals the commitment-phobic inside of me 😉 Now I can see what I have, and it’s organized (versus just in a pile!).
Until next time, happy DIY’ing!
