Using Gift Wrap to Update Kitchen Cabinets
We have a small space beside our microwave that used to be a plate rack, which drove me crazy so I took out the dowels that would make the plates stand up. This created a shelf I could place my knife block and a few other items.
I was not happy with this space, so I decided to try livening it up with some white patterned gift wrap.
I cut the gift wrap slightly larger than the back of the cupboard. After I cut the size I needed, I steamed the piece of paper with a towel over it using my iron. This way, I could protect the paper and also get some of the curl out of the gift wrap.
At the back of the cabinet, there was a small space I could tuck the gift wrap in all around to keep it from falling down, so I didn’t use glue or any adhesive. Which is great, in case I want to change it or remove it later.
Much better and brighter. I also tried gift wrap at the back of one more cabinet, I’ll share that project in my next post.
