One more thing checked off the October to-do list! Less than a week to go and I’m only halfway there…. I blame one week of travel and one week of jet-lag!
I’m so glad I lined this bookshelf. It feels so much lighter in that corner. It was a PAIN to take out all of the glassware, but it gave me a chance to re-tighten the screws so that the bookshelf is less creaky and we also added two nails to keep the backboard in place properly. I didn’t take progress pics, mainly because it’s pretty self-explanatory. Empty bookcase. Lie it face down on the ground. Remove nails holding in backboard & take out the backboard. Cover in contact paper (I covered the back side of the board just in case I hated it and wanted to go back to the dark brown side). Slide backboard back in with chevron side facing in. Nail into place. Stand bookcase back up. Fill bookcase back up again. Ta-da!
P.S. That wine is from Trader Joes. It’s dirt cheap and very drinkable. If you like fruity medium-bodied wines from California, I’d highly recommend it.
