Revamp Your Wire Shelves With This Foam Board Hack

The Thrifty Apartment

I think it’s fair to say that wire shelves in our closets don't have much visual appeal. Wire shelves are drab and dated.

Here's the perfect hack to upgrade your wire shelves. And you don't need any power tools.

What You'll Need

– Foam Board  – Packing Tape – Box Cutter  – Contact Paper – Measuring Tape – Pencil


Measure your shelves

Measure the length, width and edge (the lip) of the wire shelves with a measuring tape.


Outline & Cut the Foam Board

Once you have the measurements for the shelves, it is time to outline the foam board, then cut the outlines.


Cover Foam Board with Contact Paper

Lay the Contact paper over the foam board. Leave atleast 2-3 inches extra of contact paper on each side and then wrap the foam board with paper.


Insert the new shelves into your  closet

Once you place your new shelves into the closet, you can organize and decorate it to your liking.
