If you're looking for a cost-effective project to do to add a bit more color to your home, these DIY shelves are a great way to upcycle an unused shelving unit into a technicolor decor piece using fun textiles.

These fun fabric-wrapped mini shelves are a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral home. Pick up several yards of a fabric of your choice in a color scheme that will complement your decor. After cutting the fabric into long rectangular stripes, you can wrap the textile strips around your shelving units with Mod Podge glue. It's best to use a hard plastic surface, like a popsicle stick, to squeeze out any air between the shelf and the fabric strips before the glue dries.
