Easy Wallpaper Bookshelves

After spotting an easy how-to for changing up the back of a bookcase I was on the lookout for some gift wrap or wallpaper that would fit the style of our living room built-ins. I like modern, clean lines but decided to mix it up with a vintage floral motif. Besides, using this format, you can swap designs out easily throughout the year.

Bookshelves before:


Step 1:
Measure and size poster board to fit:


Step 2: Wrap poster board in gift wrap/wallpaper. I found this design at Rifle Papers.


Step 3: Pop it in and start accessorizing!
