Decide where to put your new shelf and decorate it with you things. Congratulate yourself on making your old shelves new and awesome!
Have an old particle board book shelf that you just want to throw away? DON'T! Take that old boring bookshelf and make it into a piece of furniture to be proud of!
Step 1: Step 1: Choose your piece to renovate!
Select a piece that is simple and without any decorative parts already. The simpler the piece the easier it will be to renovate. In this case I have a book shelf made from particle board with an ugly faux-woodgrain paper veneer on it. I've had it for years and decided to make it beautiful instead of trash!
