Bookcase With Wallpaper Backing | Manolo for the Home

A Little Something Exta

How can you make the perfect bookcase extra perfect? Try adding some color with wallpaper or even craft paper or contact paper. Not on your books or on the top and sides of the bookcase, but rather in back, where it will frame whatever is on your bookcase, absolutely brilliantly.

This is a super DIY project if you’re dealing with a flatpack bookcase, e.g., the Ikea Billy, since you can take off the whole back and simply cover it, but it’s none too difficult when you have to put the paper on the backing directly. It just means a bit of careful measuring and cutting, and a somewhat more careful application. But, oh, so worth it! See?

    Love the prints on the paper but think the look detracts from the items being displayed. Just a little too busy for me.

    I think it depends on what you’re displaying, Pam. What about a beautiful colored shelf with patterned backing that you use to display a collection of bright white ceramics? I think in that case you’re showcasing both the ceramics and the furniture itself.
