These bookshelves are cheap at only 25.84 a piece but they look so cheappp and booooringgg. So! My excellent creative love Justin had an idea on how to liven up the cardboard on the back. Magically we used some spray adhesive and some great Moroccan patterned green fabric that we found at Hobby Lobby here in town:
I sort of want to make it into a dress and wear it all around! Yay! But it was dedicated for the book shelf so we got it all dressed up!
We actually think it may have made the entire structure a little bit more solid since we backed it with the fabric as well. Another great touch that we added was the corner thingys. (I dunno what they are called.) They seem to add more structure plus I think they look pretty darn cute!
I still have to figure out the perfect accessorizing for my bookcase it always takes me a few weeks to tweek it exactly how I want it but! Here's what it looks like so far! A little less WalMart and a little bit more custom!
I don't know about you guys but I love it! I think it's the perfect addition to my office! Hopefully I won't fill it up with books for my future classroom too fast!
