For quite a while, I’ve been wanting to paper the back of this bookshelf. I saw it done in Young House Love and I really like how it adds another layer of detail. When my sister gave me a roll of wood grain wrapping paper, I knew it was right. Originally, I planned on using poster board, but my shelf is 30″ wide, which is just a bit wider than poster board, so I had to hold out for a big box. The box ended up being sturdier, which I think was better in the end.
I measured the inside of each shelf and drew the panels onto my cardboard box.
I think it adds so much interest! And, since we had the box, it only cost a roll of wrapping paper. And, since mine was a gift…this project was free! The best kind!
Have you ever tried this? I’d love to see!
Enjoying the Good Life,
