Clean the book case with some soapy water and wipe it dry. (If your shelves on the book case can be removed easily remove them as this will make the project much easier.)
Measure the height and width of the back of the shelves, if your shelves have a gaping hole in between the shelf and back add a couple cm to fill the gaps underneath.
Cut your pieces of wallpaper to the dimensions you have.
Paste the paper into place and allow drying.
Using the Kraft knife trim any extra pieces around the backing.
The project is completed, now you can add all your statement pieces and be in awe of your own work with your now beautiful statement bookcase.
