These house-bound days during the long Ohio winter make me feel a bit antsy and I am frequently looking for something to do inside that will add a bit of spark and light to life.

I love the feeling of a good bookshelf purge and organizing session and I thought I would share a few ideas for dressing up shelves and bookcases to make them appear more interesting, unique, and vibrant.
I’m a minimalist at my core – I adhere to the “less is more” philosophy so most of what I am drawn to are things that I think are treatments that are fun and designs that will endure over time.

Paint, wall covering, leather and fabric are all great ways to treat the inside of bookcases.
I especially like the wall covering idea because it is an easy way to incorporate some texture and pattern.

Why would you ever have a boring bookcase when you can kick it up a notch and create something interesting???

Be on the lookout – I'm predicting more painted finishes on furniture, mill-work, and BOOKCASES.

Painted bookcases with a contrasting interior – I think it’s coming back into fashion.

What do you think? Ready to open a can of paint or buy a roll or two of wall covering. I say - be bold, and just go for it!

Have fun with it - happy decorating!
