So here is the rap literally..... Wrap the back of your bookcase in fabric, wallpaper, or just a contrasting paint than the rest of your piece to create wonderful drama and interest in the room. This is a great way to update a tired old bookcase. Here is a great DIY on how to wrap the back of your bookcase in fabric. I personally love this one pictured below with it's wonderful textured wallpaper. (I have this image as my screen saver at the moment on my computer at work).
P.S. A new Comment Button has arrived! I look forward to hearing your thoughts!!
