Shelves for a teen’s room.
Using just paint and wallpaper, transform boring shelves into something even your teen will love.
You will need: Wooden cabinet with shelves, roller and tray, ruler and scalpel/scissors, liquid glue, 1L of Resene paint in your chosen colour. We used Resene Apache and Resene FX Metallic Solid Gold. You could choose a single solid colour if you preferred. Wallpaper from the Resene Wallpaper collection available from Resene ColorShops. We used wallpaper from the Boys & Girls collection.
Top tip: Even many tech savvy teens still like to doodle. Enable your teen to doodle on the sides of their bookshelf without wrecking it, using Resene Write-on Wall Paint to create a coloured whiteboard. Simply wipe off as needed and they can start all over again. Also handy for younger children as you can use it to name the shelf to remind them what goes where.
