From an Ugly 80’s Built-In to Chic Shiplap Shelves
Our social media director Lauren recently moved into a rental apartment that wasn’t exactly her style.
She’s been making a ton of changes to the place to make it feel more like a home, while still staying within her rental contract.
For this week’s upgrade, Lauren redid a mirrored build-in cabinet with Shiplap NuWallpaper.
The NuWallpaper completely transformed the cabinet, hiding the 80’s style mirrors and making it feel updated and modern without any damage!
