Craft: How I made my POP Vinyl shelf

POP shelf

Since my quest for finding the perfect geek box subscription for us I have discovered the world of POP Vinyls and have found them slowly taking over the house on any shelf I can find!

As you can see they're popping.... up all over the place so I decided to make their own shelving so I can have them all in one place.

This really isn't difficult to do and does not need to be expensive.  My nearest DIY store is B&Q so I  picked up a couple of pieces of slim timber for £2.78 each, brackets for £2 and some screws.  I then found the perfect piece of fabric on eBay to use, but decoupage or paint will work, it's a personal choice.

Making a shelf for my POP! Vinyls
I started with painting the edges and then found out that my washi tape is the exact width of the edging!!  Fabulous.

I used the wood as the template to cut the material and cut 2 stripes, one for each side so you can see the pattern rather than bare wood underneath depending on the height the shelf will go.

Once cut I used my ever faithful large pot of Mod Podge to glue the material to the wood, and it went on nice and smoothly.  I could have left the shelf as is, but I decided to use my washi tape to finish off the edging.

Once I selected which side I wanted the POPs to sit on I attached the brackets to the underneath and placed on the wall.  Just have the second shelf to do now.

  1. This looks amazing! What a simple way of doing it too. I may have to have a go at this my self. There are not enough shelves in this house.

    1. Thanks Angela, I don't know why I didn't think about creating my own shelves years ago lol.

      I'm sure yours would be fantastic.


Thank you for popping by - and even bigger thanks if you're showing me a bit of love by leaving a comment :D xoxo
