Bookshelf Update

I wanted you all to see the finished bookshelf first. They were solid white. I kept seeing how people paint the backs of bookshelves, so I started thinking of things I could do. First I thought about paper. Like scrap book paper. They have such pretty prints. And I didn't after all want it to be a permanent thing. In case I changed my mind. But while looking at paper I decided it wasn't the way to go. I also thought of wallpaper. Which would be very cool. But I would need such a little bit. So while shopping at the 99cent store, I found this shelving paper. Contact paper!! And for only $4.00 got 4 rolls. Enough to do the project. Here is the begining.
It went on really easy.
Then I added back all the books and nick nacks.
I had two of them to do. I'm so pleased with how they turned out! And always with great color!
