Originally it was a natural pine colour, which is fine since its a great piece but it didn't really go with anything. I ended up spray painting it (I know, big surprise!). So for a while it just sat black and boring but I wanted to do something interesting with it. I was seeing all over blogland and decorating magazines that you can put wallpaper on the back of them. That sounded great to me except that I have a fear of wallpaper ever since one of the houses that we lived in had over 24 different wallpapers all over the house - but that's another story.
So I didn't want to use wallpaper because I have commitment issues, so I decided instead to see what fabric I had since fabric is so much easier to remove. I had this perfect grey floral that has been sitting there for a while and decided it would be great for this project. Plus it matched with the curtains I made and the overall colour scheme of my office, bonus!
To do this to your own bookshelf you'll need mod podge, a paint brush, fabric scissors, an iron, and a good amount of space.
