I love to fix old worn out broken down furniture. I decided to take on this project on a cold winters day. My goal was to fix a broken piece of wood without having to go to the store for supplies. So I used my mind and went to work using only items I could find around the house.
Place books below to hold the shelf in place until it has completely dried.
The top half was starting to break away as well, so I pulled another piece of flat plastic out of the recycle bin, cut it to size and glued it on.
Next tear up some brown paper bags into random shapes.
Place the paper in an inch of water
Here comes the fun part!
Dip the wet paper into the glue solution and stick it to the top.
After it has dried a little, cut the excess off the edges.
I liked the way it turned out except the edges were still bothering me.
The end result is a wonderfully textured bookshelf.
I love the end result
