I was in desperate need of a bookshelf for the boys’ Minecraft room and I needed it to fit under the loft bed. Unfortunately, all of our bookshelves were just a smidge too high- except the Paw Patrol bookshelf that I made two years ago. My kids have outgrown Paw Patrol so it seemed reasonable to redo it with a Minecraft theme.
To be honest though… I feel a bit guilty squeezing a post out of this project because I didn’t really take any process photos, but fortunately it’s a repeat on the Paw Patrol project. I’ll quickly go over the steps, but check out the old post if you need photos and details.
Here’s the wayyyy before photo…
Here’s the shelf two years later… before I changed it into a Minecraft bookshelf.

- Minecraft themed fabric
- Old sling bookshelf
- Spray paint: I prefer Rustoleum 2x and I used black to match
While your 1-2 coats of spray paint dry, you can work on your slings. I used the original book slings as a template for my new ones, adding a small seam allowance. I had found some Minecraft looking flannel a while back so I used that for most of it, then I added a sling in bright red (to match the rest of the room) for the bottom sling. I only did this because I’d run out of the flannel, whoops.
Once the paint dries, you can just slip the slings back on and adjust. Add your books and you’re done! The kids love it!
