PUNCH of color

We are very excited for spring! Besides fall I think spring is the best decorating season of the year. Bright playful colors like yellow, pink,  and blue. Tulips and greenery can be spotted everywhere with a light airy feel to remind you that cold snowy weather is almost behind us. Unfortunately when you live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada spring and summer can take a really really long time to arrive. We thought we would get a head start and add a giant punch of spring color to our otherwise plain jane bookshelf
 Using some pretty wrapping paper at only $3.99 a roll we added a definite punch to the bookshelf. Ive always wanted to incorporate pink into the living room so this was a great way to see if it would work. The wrapping paper roll is the exact width of our ikea billy bookshelves making this project super easy. Tucking in the wrapping paper by slightly pushing the back board of the shelf seemed secure enough but I added a tiny bit of adhesive tape just in case.

The final result is a bit crazy! Luckily its temporary and just for fun.
The kids really like it but that baby will be changed very soon. I came across some yellowish paper at winners which I think will be a bit more subtle. If you have a smaller bookcase or even a few glass cabinets in your kitchen I think using wrapping paper is a perfect and inexpensive way to add a touch of color and whimsy.
Have a wonderful weekend and never be afraid to play and have fun with your decor!
