Everyone I know loves these Ikea shelves and who wouldn't, they're so versatile AND cheap?? Unheard of!!
Unfortunately, scratches show very easily (Especially in this finish), and I wanted a low-budget way to recover them.
So.... I went to Wal-Mart and bought a roll of slightly cushioned shelving liner that unfortunately was non-adhesive in this pretty design BUT i fixed that with double-sided Scotch brand tape. I cut it to size so that I could also have the design around the edges.
So here's the proof in the pudding...
Fun fact: I had a piece left over about 21" wide so I used that on my other Ikea shelf for under my laptop!
