I love incorporating color, pattern and texture into all areas of my house. Recently I have become more and more obsessed with utilizing the fine paper that is available at countless stores.
Also, I had noticed that the bookshelves in my living room were starting to look a little cluttered. Although I first tried taking away some decorative accents (I would describe myself as more of a maximalist in this department...) I quickly realized the real issue. All of my books. Cook books, children's books from my days in the classroom, Jason's business books, the list goes on, and on, and on. From bright orange, to antique, neon green, to gray the mishmash of colors and the combination of typography was turning my shelves into a hot mess.
Then it dawned on me- repaper the books! Luckily I had already purchased some paper and it was sitting in my closet, just waiting to be used. I also had some extra fabric laying around which I used on a few books and in a little picture frame too!
This whole project didn't cost a lot of money, took very little time and really changed the cohesiveness of my bookshelves.
