How do you make press board shelves look better? I've tried contact paper and it won't stick.

Try painting it. You will have to prime it first so the paint will stick, but it will look nice when you are done. We were remodeling our office area, but could not afford new furniture. We had an old wood tone desk and bookshelf that had both seen better days. We primed then painted a glossy black. Both were better than new! (05/31/2006)
I agree, they need to be sealed in some way. If you don't want to paint, stain and varnish them. (06/01/2006)
I have white stackable shoe cubes that have 3 openings and are white. I found some nice inexpensive baskets and attached fabric and they are pretty and sit in the corner of the kitchen. (06/01/2006)
