DIY: Styling Up a Bookcase
I am in love with this style bookcase! I cannot say that enough. BUT to me in my OCD neat freakness, there’s a flaw. The open back. Open backs mean visible cords. Visible cords mean messy looking. Can’t stand messy looking! I know I do go a little over board. And strangely enough when I’m in other people’s houses half of the stuff that bothers me doesn’t. It’s weird. I’m weird. But it’s ok because I own it :). ANYWAY!
Here’s the how to…
Measure out the back openings allowing for the space plus 1/2″ on each side and top & bottom.
Cut poster board to your measurements & fabric adding 2″ all around.
Mod podge glue it to the poster board
Straighten out all of the wrinkles when placing it down
Flip to the back & wrap/glue the fabric down
Nail the pieces to the back
