Bookshelf Makeover

I've been frustrated when looking at this bookshelf.
Due to its clutter like appeal -lol
Finally, I thought of an easy cover-up Curtain.



  1. Measure Shelf (from where you want the curtain to be placed)
  2. Cut Material to length
  3. Material: Add 1 in seam allowance on sides and bottom and 2 in for Top
  4. Fold over Top and sew pocket for Rod
  5. Fold over sides and bottom and sew- or use no sew iron on adhesive
  6. Iron - or not
  7. Hang bar and slip on curtain
Hang baskets on coat hooks. Toss your winter Gloves etc. in them. (saw in BH&G)
Hang 2-3 Baskets spaced equally apart in rows on the wall.
This can work for lots of uses
Kids rooms (small toys, barrettes, pencils,etc.)
Computer Room (mail storage, to do box, envelopes,pencils etc.)
Living Room (remotes, magazines etc.)
Bath (washcloths, makeup,towels, etc.)
Kitchen (spices, etc.)
Sewing organizing
DVD Lovers Storage

Get a Medium Size Photo Album w/accordion like binding, The pages need to have a pocket bottom and no perforation.
Take DVD's out of case and keep the Cover. Slip the cover into Photo Album page and tape down. Slide your DVD into page for storage.
