Easy Shoji Screen Makeover

 Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you. Today I am going to take my almost 20-year-old shoji screen and transform it using just a few materials I had on hand. I purchased this shoji screen when living in Arizona. When my husband, and I moved around due to the military, this screen followed along with us. It has been through a lot. I decided over the weekend that I would give it a complete makeover. I'd love to share my experience with all of you. This project took one day to complete. I decided to keep the white shoji paper and work around it. Materials  Peel and stick wallpaper -The roll I am using was purchased at Lowe's during a sale they had. I believe it was $37 for the package. And it only takes one to complete this project Paint- I'm using my leftover Valspar furniture and cabinet paint Adhesive- E6000 Paintbrush Ruler  Scissors Spray paint Screwdriver Start by applying paint to the frame on each section of your shoji screen. I only applied paint to the outer surf
