DIY: Cover Ops

Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend.  
All I have to say is brrrrrr!  And can I get back in bed?!?

We had a nice relaxing weekend at home and while I didn't do anything major, 
I conquered a couple of small projects around the house to help spruce it up a bit! 

My first project is a super simple change to something that's been bugging me for months! 

Take a peek below - - can you guess what it is? 
{besides being out of wine!!}

It's the mismatched books! 

I know, I'm a little crazy...but the all the different colors in this messy stack drive me nuts!
So my solution is using something I bought and used back in this post

My trusty craft paper pad to the rescue!

My plan was to find some similar colored, neutral paper to recover the books.
Finally reusing some skills I learned from school!! Haha

There wasn't a need to completely cover every book since only the binding would be showing. 
Just the cover of the top book in the stack needed to be covered entirely.

So much better, right?

Not a drastic or difficult change...I just think it makes the overall shelf look so much cleaner! 

But I wasn't finished there!
Stay tuned tomorrow for some other fun changes...
and an introduction to my new addiction :)
