Description: It was super basic- I just trimmed some $.99/yard Sophia striped fabric to the size of the Expedit shelf.
I temporarily taped the edges of the fabric onto the back of the shelf to figure out where I needed to cut holes for the cords of the printer, modem, xbox, etc.
After the holes were neatly cut, I simply used hot glue to affix the fabric to the back of the shelf, keeping the fabric stripes in line with the lines of the shelves.
I then trimmed the edges so that it does not stick out from behind the shelf.
