Easy Update - Wallpapering the Back of a Bookcase

It's another snow day here in New York.  We really got a ton of snow this time.  Being stuck in the house so much has given me a chance to do some little projects around the house that I might not otherwise get around to doing.
As you know we just painted our dining room a lighter and brighter color.  There is a small bookcase built into the columns that separate the living room and dining room.

I decided to take the bookcase from ordinary to something a bit more special.
I started by emptying out the bookcase.  It turned out the bookcase needed a little touch-up so I pulled out the paint and painted the shelves.
Next I used temporary wallpaper I had left over (which is the same wallpaper that I used to cover the DIY magazine holders).  
It only took a few minutes for this update.  
I had already edited what was going back before I decided to add the wallpaper, so it was easy to put everything back.

I love easy projects that make such a big difference.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

It looks so nice! It's amazing how the simplest thing can make such a big difference! I have a corner cupboard that I want to update using fabric. You have just motivated me:)

Whoa. Those lamps! I don’t want to say it, but then I have to, I really love the vase, the table and the wallpaper. I can’t get through to the arrangement of the table. Lovely!
