Turn A Spice Rack Into Book Storage and Decorate It

A few months ago we showed off an inexpensive source for front-facing bookshelves. It's a smart repurposing of an IKEA item, but maybe too plain for your taste. This mom took the style up a notch and there's not even a drop of paint involved. So what did she use?

Flickr member supergail has been busy dressing up these IKEA spice rack shelves with decorative Japanese washi tape. You know you've been looking for the perfect excuse to pick some up (or more of it even) and this is a great project to use it on.

Make sure you click to see what they look like up on the wall. It's a soft and pretty look that makes something ordinary rather special.
