Cheapest fix ever.

My sister gave me this


book case when we moved into our first apartment and were short on furniture.

No backing causing it to be wobbly, and thing always fall off!

It is very useful, but in need of a major facelift.

I am a big fan of cardboard, I think it can be used in many ways for a cheap craft or fix in this case!

I cut a box into pieces to fit the back.


Using my favorite paint ever..

102_1454 Krylon in Blue Ocean Breeze, I lightly covered them.


Gave the shelf four coats of flat white paint.


When the cardboard was dry, I simply stapled the pieces onto the back.


The cardboard backing made it much more sturdy, and a little more attractive!


A completely free, and super easy to do fix! Works for me!
