What Houzz contributors are saying:
Shelving. For a more demure living room application, consider applying wallpaper to the back of shelves or glass-doored cabinets. Books and picture frames look great in the foreground, and an area this size can usually be covered by just a single roll.
10. Add wallpaper. Another way to add interest is to wallpaper the back of a bookshelf. This is usually easiest when you have removable shelves, but you can also cut the paper into individual rectangles. Apply it like normal wallpaper, or simply use double-sided tape in the corners for a temporary and easy installation.
Or wallpaper the backs of the shelves. I recommend this only if they are fairly spare. If the shelves are chockablock full (and there’s nothing wrong with that), the wallpaper will be blocked.Here’s where Houzzer comments are such a huge help: In a previous Houzz envy ideabook, you suggested using cut-to-fit foam-core boards wrapped in a favorite wallpaper or other quality paper for a great look.
