Picture of Decoupage a Bookshelf with Fabric
Decoupage is a fun and easy way to update or personalize a boring piece of furniture or similar. You can use this method with covering basically anything from boxes to clipboards, or even to pretty up a homemade journal or otherwise boring schoolbook.

Be sure to read ALL steps BEFORE you start your project, so you know exactly what you're doing, and you'll be less likely to make a silly mistake.

This is my first instructable, so if you have any questions or tips, please leave a comment!

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need the following:

-Bookshelf to cover
-Pretty cotton fabric (around 2-3m for a small bookshelf, 4-6 for medium/large shelf. Measuring is also a good idea)
-Mod Podge -Gloss Lustre/Matte (you should be able to get away with 8oz bottle if it's a small amount, otherwise you'll be right with 32oz bottle)
-Paintbrush
-Sandpaper
-Large Ruler
-Pen/Pencil/tailor's chalk/similar
-Container filled with clean water
-Paint (Optional)
-Primer (If painting)

Is the MogPog sticky?  My mom uses it on boxes, but it always sticks to paper.  I would love to do this for my newest craigslist acquisition.  Thanks!
