Washi Tape Bookshelf

Can I just say that I am truly grateful for the love and support I felt from your prayers and warm wishes for my dad over the weekend.  Even if you did not comment, I still felt lifted up and appreciate so very much that you took a minute out of your day to pray for my family.  I normally don't post the not-too-pretty side of life since my blog is my "happy place" but this was just too important not to reach out.  My family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.  We got a chance to have a nice visit this weekend and it was good to just be together.

At home, I dove into a major toy organization overhaul and then didn't have any energy left over for much else.  I did add a bit of easy pretty to my office (James' room too- just didn't photograph his yet).  Check this happiness out.


I swear sometimes it really is the little things.  I unwrapped a new roll of washi tape and was delighted by the bright, colorful pattern and immediately thought, I need to see this sunshine everyday!  So I pulled a big ole strip across my bookshelf.

And then I added a pink and white chevron patterned tape . . .


Little polka dots . . .


And big polka dots. . . (and yes that is a SATC trivia game.  I rock at it too.)


What about this floral tape?!


The cool thing is, washi tape pulls off easily without any damage.  If you get it crooked, just peel it up and restick it. 




This is a project that is fun for the whole family.  Look closely at the bottom left-hand side of the bookshelf.  James was helping.  

He was all, "I want some tape too."  I'm not gonna lie.  I gave him some plain old masking tape.  He looked at me like really?? and I felt ridiculous.  Then I let him have the "good tape."

Have a great week friends!

  16. Oh, I'm just getting caught up and will definitely keep your dad in my thoughts and prayers. I just came home after spending 11 days with my mother who was in the hospital for a tumor on her spine, so I know the feeling, I think.

    On a cheerier note, I love this use of washi tape! So fun, so cute, and so easy to switch up when the mood strikes!

  23. Is that the 4x4 Ikea Expedit? Or two of the 2x4's put together? Either way, it looks great!

  24. Just browsing your blog and found this post... I love it! I actually did the same thing recently with the shelves in one of my linen closets. I had used a label maker to label below my bins, but it just looked so blah - so I added washi tape along the full length of the shelves and then used clear label tape and added the labels on top of the washi tape. It's so much prettier and makes me happy, even if it is behind a closet door. Sometimes I open the closet door just to admire it :) I have a feeling you get that!
