Oh how I love an easy DIY decor project that adds a punch of pizazz to our home! With the help of an inexpensive “Vintage Wood” paper our home office now has a Faux Wood Backed Bookcase.
Just like most of the furniture in our home office, this laminate bookcase was a hand-me-down. The bookcase is sturdy and provides lots of display place but it was so plain. The cherry wood finish was dated and needed a shot in the arm to jolt it into this decade. This post may contain affiliate links marked with an asterisks. Click here to see my full disclosure policy.
For a brief moment the thought of painting the bookcase crossed my mind. Then I thought about the vibrant green trellis wrapping paper I adding to the Kitchen Hutch for Valentine’s Day. That was such a simple DIY decor idea that I had to try something similar in the home office.
I ordered this “Vintage Wood” Backdrop Paper* for less than $10 on Amazon. The wood tones are just what I envisioned a faux wood back for the bookcases.
A little bit of measuring. A little bit of double sided tape. And ta-da!
A fabulously faux “Vintage Wood” Backed Bookcase!
Adding the faux wood paper took minutes. With only two hours left until preschool pick up, I quickly gathered fun and meaningful pieces to decorate the shelves.
This is going to be Honey’s little corner so I really wanted to focus on things he loves. The first shelf was filled with his favorite beverages and new monogrammed glassware.
You know that saying “Always a Bridesmaid and Never A Bride”?
Well, I think Honey has been a groomsman in every one of his best buddies’ weddings. He has quite a collection of flasks from each of the friends he stood with during their nuptials. The flask on the top gives me a chuckle each time I read it.
Honey is also an avid outdoorsman. When I asked for antlers he brought home a ton from the family farm. Tangled together they look like a piece of sculpture on the bottom shelf.
There are a few more pieces on the bookcase I would love to chat about but I’ll save those for another day. The home office update will be complete soon but until then I’ve got many more DIY decor projects to share with you.
It’s amazing what a $10 rolled of faux “Vintage Wood” paper can do for a bookcase. The faux wood backed bookcase in our home office looks so fabulous! Now I’ve just got to add this simple DIY project to the other two bookcases in the room!
I would love to know what special pieces are on your home office bookcases! What’s your favorite item?
