Wallpaper Bookcase

A "fool the eye" bookcase made from wallpaper borders.

Approximate Time: Two hours or less


  • leftover wallpaper borders featuring book design
  • leftover wallpaper borders featuring wood grain design
  • Ad
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • bowl in which to wet the wallpaper borders


  1. Depending on the size you want your bookcase, cut the border featuring books into pieces of equal length.

  2. For the "shelves", cut the wood grain border into narrow strips.

  3. Glue the book strips to the wall with the shelving strips in between.

  4. For the casing, measure wider pieces of wood grain border and cut to fit, mitering the corners so as to look like woodwork.
