Billy Bookcase Background Ideas


     Now say that three times fast! 

I was on twitter the other night and I follow Jen from Tatertots and Jello. She showed a picture of some amazing wrapping paper that she found at Marshalls in California last week. 

I certainly know about their amazing wrapping paper because I had used their fake wood paper as my bookcase background, but I really wanted to do something with navy. When I saw her pic of the navy chevron I was in love. {As 'in love' with wrapping paper as one can be}. 

These are some of the papers I found:


And if you look closely you can see they are only $2.99! Amazing!

So my bookcases got an update. I'm not sure which I like better but I'm guessing when my hubby sees them the chevron might be a bit too much for him.




What do you like better?

Billy bookcase's {from IKEA} are easy to swap backgrounds out if you use push pins. I use clear ones and they go easily into the cardboard-ish backing.










They certainly add a lot of drama in this little space. And I have a lot of chevron going on all over so it may be a bit much........I will have to marinade on it for a while..........

Now, what to use that houndstooth seafoam paper for?

  3. I love them both. I agree - the faux wood is more neutral. But I love the idea of switching it out every once in a while! I need to find some of that faux wood!!

  4. Very cute redo of your bookcase backs! :) How did it "marinate"? Did you keep it or go more subtle?

    Thanks for sharing with us, and it's always great to see creative minds at work. :)

    1. I ended up going back to the faux wood. We already have a lot of Chevron around and it felt like chevron overload! I still love the pattern but for this space I'd better stick with smaller doses of it! ;)

  9. Ok, I am going to admit...I am obsessed with chevron. Obsessed. My daughter thinks it is hillarious! I have to purposefully choose to stay away from it, because I am drawn to anything chevron. I bought two rolls of the wrapping paper a few weeks ago and have been wondering what to do with them. I might have to put it on the back of my bookcase! What a cute idea!!

It is important to take note of what particular type of physical activity you want or enjoy doing before you buy your exercise machine. If you are looking to loose a few pounds and you enjoy walking or hiking, a treadmill is the best option for you. If you are looking to tone your lower body while burning calories a stationary bike is your obvious choice. Similarly, Special Equipments for Core Strength Exercises, Strength Training Weight Vests, Core Strength & Abdominal Trainers, Home Cardio Training, Strength Training Power Cages, Strength Training Racks & More.
