Spruce up shelves by giving them a charming and cohesive look, with an exciting backdrop, by applying contact paper, bright paint, scrapbook paper, or fabric to the back of a bookshelf. If you don't want to commit to a particular design or color scheme, measure the bookshelf's back panel and mount the background material on poster board cut to the size of each shelf. This can really give a space a whole new ambiance.
We just love this startling, but lovely pop of pink.
