Attach Trim to Shade
Position trim at desired height along bottom edge of shade, brush glue on remaining length of trim and attach to shade.
Measure Trim Placement
Check distance of trim from bottom edge of shade to ensure level placement before glue dries. Once you're satisfied with placement, press trim firmly onto shade to ensure glue adheres properly.
Remove Excess and Glue Down Edges
Cut off excess trim leaving approximately 1/2-inch selvage at each side of shade. Apply glue to back side of trim selvage; turn under and press selvage firmly onto reverse side of shade.
With just a few simple modifications, you can easily turn a basic bookshelf into a kid-friendly play workbench.
