I finally got around to doing a much needed overdue project in the master bedroom this past weekend.
Remember the nondescript built-in bookshelf that’s actually a hidden door?
Too plain Jane.
Now Ooh La La!
I had some left over toile fabric that was used to cover the inside of the armoire.
It looks a little more beige/yellow in the photos, but it’s the same creamy white in person.
I did this project in about an hour. I measured the backs of the shelves and cut poster board to size. I then cut the fabric a little larger and folded it around the back of the poster board like wrapping paper and secured it with tape. I used masking tape to adhere it to the cabinet back. So easy to change out.
Here are the 4 panels before I taped them in!
I love the way it turned out!
I’m playing around with styling the shelves. With it actually being a door (and a heavy one at that), I have to be careful what I put on it. I can’t put lots of books or anything extremely breakable. That’s why it tends to look bare.
I definitely think the fabric helps to add some interest.
Now to tackle the shelves in the library. It will be a much bigger task and I’m not sure yet what fabric I’ll use.
Do you think it might be a different colored toile?
You know me…
On another note, has anyone seen or tried these candles at Bath and Body Works? I highly recommend them. They’re two of my new favorites.
They smell absolutely divine!!!
