What kind of backer board is behind the shelves or is it just textured drywall?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Dining room bookcases are filled with family heirlooms and historical pieces. Grandpa's trumpet, grandma's typewriter and books galore serve as conversation pieces when entertaining.

4. Vary the direction of the books. This is an easy trick that will instantly help you reach balance in a shelf: Place your books both vertically and horizontally, changing the presentation in each individual shelf. Intersperse them with objects, propped by the books, so your eye continues to linger on all the interesting items.
Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to How to Make Your Home Feel More Like You
Your HistoryDisplay meaningful heirlooms in your bookcases or on tabletops. Incorporate a few important pieces that document your history into your bookcase, but make sure you use more books than accessories. Too many accessories makes for a cluttered and unfocused look.
