This upcycled trash to treasure project may possibly be the quickest, easiest, and cutest makeover I’ve done in a while. When I went to the CHA Mega Show I had the privilege of viewing the new fabric Duck Tape line. I immediately wanted to try it out! We use an old IKEA shelf from when my husband was single to organize Mia’s room. Sure, the shelves are useful; however they are black and harsh for a little girl’s room. My solution is upcycled fabric Duck Tape shelves.

You only need two supplies:

  1. The Fabric Duck Tape of your choice and
  2. The Fiskars Amplify Craft Shears (because they cut Duck Tape perfectly!)

Sorry! I REALLY should have dusted them before I took the picture… whoops!!!

I simply added pink Fabric Duck Tape to the trim. It happened to be the perfect width. It was so quick and easy! The best part is is that if you are tired of it. You can take it off and try a different color or pattern.  I used three rolls for this, but had plenty left over (I used three to have one continuous piece for each side).

It’s such a small thing, but it makes a huge difference in her room! Now I am obsessed and need to make a bunch of other things that match! Hmmmm… stay tuned!
