Doily-Edged Shelves

Give bookshelves a playful trim with the addition of paper doilies.


  1. Step 1

    Spray-paint doilies to match your decor, and let dry.

  2. Step 2


    With a utility knife and a ruler, cut doilies in half.

  3. Step 3

    Affix the cut edge along the front of shelves with double-sided tape, slightly overlapping the lacy sections.
