Cath Kidston Shelving Revamp.. ♥

After I saw a post on Pieces of Wonderful blog, where she used some gorgeous Cath Kidston tape to jazz up her belongings, I bought some for myself.

I bought the masking tape on Amazon for £4.15 (free delivery), and the RRP is apparently £7. I know.. £7 for masking tape… jeeeez! I luckily had an e-voucher left over from some online surveys I did a while ago so spent my £4.15 and waited for the tape to arrive!

You get 3 mini rolls of masking tape with different Cath Kidston print designs on. I only really like the floral one, but you also get a green polka dot tape, and one with yellow stars. The packet states that you get 12 meters, but I think you get 4m of each roll.

I decided to spruce up my painted white wooden shelves. I simply pressed the masking tape onto the edge of the shelf, then cut it to length. Done!

I just love the effect it gives.. it looks like it has been finely hand painted in this gorgeous pattern. The tape was just the right width to cover the whole edge. I love it! It looks great for a vintage effect, and it’s so simple to do. I wonder what else I can put it on…

    I printed out Cath Kidston patterns, cut them to shape and put them around my shelves, and just stuck them on with tape! I'll tweet you a photo so you can see what I mean! 😀

    I have this tape too!!! I use it on wooden photo frames instead of painting them. This stuff is brill isnt it! It just goes on, and its not too stick so you can just move it if you go wrong! x

    I love this idea! My room already looks slightly like a Cath Kidston shop, but I'll definitely be trying this out. X

    This is just beautiful! I'd love to do something like this with my room x

    Is this your bedroom? It's so shabby chic and pretty, especially those tea cups! I really like the tape 'trim' on shelves, I put cloths over mine but had never thought of decorating just the very edge which does look so much better…
