Bookshelves Updated with Scrapbook Paper

I wanted to lighten up the look of our family room bookshelves.  They are currently a dark wood that I have considered painting white.  I love all the white bookshelves on Pinterest and I may still go in the direction of painting these in the future.  I love the look of these.


But, at the same time, I love how our family room has a library feel to it and white bookshelves might take away from that.  Even one of the signs on our gallery wall says library.  So, for now, I am sticking with the dark wood.

I originally set out to cover some foam board with wallpaper or wrapping paper, but ended up using plain old scrapbook paper.  It was affordable and easy and I love how it lightens up the look but can easily be changed.

Here were the bookshelves before:

Bookshelves are one of my favorite things to decorate and I have a whole pin board dedicated just to that.  Check it out here.   I change my mind all the time, so these shelves just might will probably end up painted in the near future.  But for now, I love how the lighter backs have updated them.
