Hello crafty ladies and gentlemen!

I come to you with a crafting dilemma.  I have two sets of shelves that are in dire need of refurbishing of some kind.  They're pressboard with a white overlay of some kind that's, in parts, bumpy and gross.  I have them in my bathroom so whatever I do to them needs to put up with heat and humidity.

I could just do a fabric tablecloth for them both, but I'd like some other options, too.  Would finding pretty scrapbook paper and then sealing it work, do you think?  Or gluing fabric to it instead (that might be hard to clean, though)?

Thanks in advance!

Those places that are bumpy and gross are probably water damaged, and may improve with sanding.  You can always cover them with contact paper.  if they still look rough and it has made good contact all over shelf, layer a second piece over the first.
