I previously blogged about the wallpaper panels in our master bedroom. Well we had some leftover wallpaper that I couldn't let go to waste, so I decided to "wallpaper" the bookshelves in our living room (they needed a little sprucing up). I put the word wallpaper in quotes because I didn't actually use wallpaper paste. Instead, I just used double-stick tape to adhere the paper to the bookshelves. I wanted a more temporary solution and, so far, it has done the trick.
Here's the before:
And the afters:
Taking a closer peek, I received these super cute owl banks/vases from my in-laws for my birthday. I am using them as bookends for my fun penguin classics. And thanks to a birthday present from my friend Lauren, my collection drastically increased!
Also, a while back, I posted about a great bookshelf here and mentioned how I loved the ginger jar. The very next day, my mom spotted one at HomeGoods and picked it up for me! Thanks, mom! I was originally planning on putting it in our master bedroom, but decided I liked it better in the living room.
Now the bookshelves aren't quite so boring. I definitely feel like I got my money's worth with just the one roll! What do you think?
