DIY {Photo}Book Covers


I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was embarking on a makeover of our guest bedroom/craft room. It’s not the biggest of spaces, but we are making it work for us. There is a daybed in the room which is great for guests & space…it only takes up the square footage of a twin but has a trundle so can sleep two! The large desk that was opposite the bed I’ve moved into the closet and while it freed up a lot of usable space in the room we also lost a lot of the storage space from in the closet. So MANY items had to find new homes.

Some of those items were photo albums full of great memories from college. I loaded them up on one of the bookshelves in my new piece from IKEA, but….all the different spine colors & textures…it just wasn’t working for me. I needed to classy the shelf up! 

So I grabbed a couple pieces of scrapbook paper that coordinated with the room and got to work. I wasn’t looking for a permanent fix, so besides the paper I only needed tape. I cut the paper wide enough and tall enough to wrap just around the spine. Then I taped them down.



It took probably 12 minutes to cover all 6 photo albums. What a huge difference it made!


By no means was this little DIY necessary but boy doesn’t it look nice!
