Have you ever decided to do something and then thought, "why did it take me so long to decide to do that?". That's how I feel about my decision to paint or wallpaper the back of our black bookcase. It's all handcrafted and hand painted so I think I was reticent to paint over someone's labour of love. In the end, it's just too black and it needs some wow. Now to decide what kind of treatment it deserves. There are so many inspiring ideas out there.
I love bright and bold but it may also require a lot more work in the styling department just trying to keep things from becoming a jumbled up mess.
Case in point. There are very few books in these bookcases.
Here's one that's a little less colourful but still not so many books. Oh no, I see a trend.
This is a definite option if wallpaper is what I decide on.
I realize this isn't a bookcase but it's still got major wowza.
While I would consider myself an avid reader I don't think I could ever in my lifetime find enough books to colour code a whole wall like this. Very inspirational though!

Or maybe I should just leave it black and style it a bit better.
What do you think? What do you like to do with your bookcase?
