Tips for styling your bookshelf:

  • If you can, leave spaces for larger pieces like frames, vases, and baskets that balance the look of the shelves.
  • If you have a lot of books, try sorting them by color, making it a focal point of your decor rather than an afterthought.
  • If you don’t like the high contrast look of this project, you can try covering the entire shelf in the white paper for a sleek, modern look.
