I’ve been thinking about adding some color to the inside of my kitchen hutch for a while now. I considered painting it but decided that would be too permenant; same goes for wallpaper. Then, the light bulb went off after seeing this post from one of my favorite blogs: Tatertots & Jello! She used super cute wrapping paper in her cabinet, I decided to go wtih some cute black & cream fabric I had on hand.
Here’s what I started with:
Because I wanted the ability to be able to switch out the fabric, I decided to attach it to the cardboard, that way I can take it out of the hutch when I want a change. I measured the space, cut the cardboard and added the fabric.
Due to the width of my fabric I had to cut 3 pieces to go across the entire length of the cardboard. I spayed the cardboard with Elmers Spray Adhesive and laid my fabric out (giving myself enough extra fabric to wrap it around). Using my trusty
BFF hot glue gun, I glued the fabric onto the back making sure to pull the fabric tight.
As you can see, the cardboard piece isn’t perfect. *SIGH* One end is a bit smaller; I can’t cut a straight line to save my life! Once it’s in there no one will noitce (and I’m trusting you not to tell)! I made 2 covered pieces since I have 2 shelves and put them inside.
Last was the fun part, adding all my pieces back in!
I love how it turned out! I took me less than 2 hours and added just a little ”something special”. The best part is, I can easily
take the cardboard pieces out later to change it up!
