I must make a confession. I am in love with brown. I am always drawn to it. Almost every piece of furniture I have ever purchased is brown. I love the richness and warmth...yet sometimes I feel like it is consuming me because it is EVERYWHERE in my house. For this latest venture, we decided to paint our bookshelves white...more specifically, "Antique White" by Glidden. I almost had a panic attack thinking that they would not match the rest of the house. Really. I had to tell myself to get over it.
Here is the before. No surprise that I had 4 dark brown pieces of furniture on the back wall around the archway (ok, you can only see 3 here but you get the idea). The wall of brown.

Found this super cute fabric to use as the background.
After a debate on how to actually secure the fabric, we decided to use the ever faithful staple gun. We just stapled the fabric on to the back frame of the shelves.
