Other pinner said: Adding fabric to our IKEA bookcases gave them a custom look. I wish I had done it years ago! The process of adding fabric to the shelves was way easier and less expensive than I expected.
Place painted foam board in the back of the bookcase, giving the look of a painted bookshelf w/out the commitment. Love this idea for a small book shelf next to couch. Good way to use yellow without committing to it in a big space.
