Washi Tape. It’s my thing.
It’s like…Hey, I’m Washi Tape. High strung Japanese teenagers use me to make school supplies look cool. Now you can use me to seal your envelopes and the utility company will think you are all cutting edge like that. Yeah, I’m Washi Tape. And I’m rad…
I use washi tape on all sorts of stuff around the house. Last weekend I decided to use it on the edges of some temporary utility shelves in my living room. Eventually I would like to replace the set-up with a breakfront cabinet, but in the meantime, washi tape does a good job of elevating the shelves to something more substantial than some rando melamine planks left in basement.
Decided I liked the living room set-up so much, I took it to the pantry.

The tape I used in the living room was new and super sticky, but the stuff in the pantry was a little older and dried out, so I dabbed some white glue here and there just to make sure it stays in place. I don’t plan on changing it anytime soon, but if I did, I could easily run a layer of removable tape between the shelf and the washi tape just to be safe.
Yeah, washi tape. It’s my jam.
