  • Step 1

    Run a piece of washi tape across the entire front of your bookshelf. With scissors, trim the ends of the tape for a clean edge.

  • Step 2

    Place a piece of the complementary washi tape, about 12 in/30.5 cm long, on a slightly larger piece of parchment paper. Measure the width of your tape (mine is 5/8 in/16 mm), and mark the piece of tape in increments of that measurement along the full length. Cut the washi tape to make squares.

  • Step 3

    Peel of one square from the parchment paper and rotate it 45 degrees so that it looks like a diamond. Place it at this angle on the far left side of the washi-covered shelf front.

  • Step 4

    Peel off another square and place it beside the first diamond. Repeat, until the entire shelf front is covered with a harlequin pattern.
