Add Whimsical Wallpaper to your Bookcase!

If you are looking to add an extra layer of depth and texture to your Wonderland space or you simply want an inexpensive way to make a bookshelf come to life, consider adding whimsical wallpaper to the back of your bookshelf!  This is an easy Do –It- Yourself project (or your carpenter will easily be able to conquer this task) and you will add instant interest to your space!

The Materials you will need are the following:

  • Bookcase
  • Whimsical Wallpaper
  • Wallpaper Primer and Paste
  • Scissors
  • Wallpaper Smoother
  • Damp Cloth

First, you will need to measure the back of each shelf.  If you are able to remove the individual shelves then you will be able to take one large measurement. Next, you will cut your wallpaper to match your measurements. Now, it is time to install your wallpaper using wallpaper primer and paste. Make sure you use the wallpaper smoother to smooth all bubbles and wrinkles out as you work. The damp cloth can be used to wipe away any excess glue. Last, allow your new and improved bookcase to dry overnight!

 

I would love to hear how you have incorporated wallpaper into your bookcase!  Leave me a comment below or send me a photo!

Keep Dreaming, Designing and Dwelling!

Cheers!
