Update Your Bookcase with Washi Tape — Video from Apartment Therapy

Apartment Therapy

After taking the time to decorate your bookshelf like a pro, you may be ready to take your decor to the next level. Enter washi tape. It's an easy and inexpensive way to update furniture. (And good news, they make washi tape big enough to take on these kinds of projects, so you don't have to go inch by inch.)

In this video, see how simple it is to turn your plain bookcase into a piece that pops. Plus, it's not permanent. If you want to try a different background at any point, you can! Who says a little tape can't go a long way?

The washi tape we used: Patch Tsugihagi F, $18 per roll. One roll is enough to cover the back of the 3-shelf BILLY bookcase from IKEA.
