Easy Wallpaper Bookshelves

March 24, 2013

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.

Love the flexibility this creates. If you want a different look simply change the paper! You always come up with wonderful ideas.
