These days, I’ll find myself stopping in the doorway of my office, staring in, thinking ‘I want to change everything!’. I’m sure many of you have had the same experience. It happens after time, particularly with the rooms in which you spend most of your days. It would be amazing if we could all just start completely fresh, but that isn’t always possible. So… what’s the next best thing? Making simple and easy changes to your key pieces that will drastically change the look and feel of the room. It’s a quick and affordable option and allows the opportunity to fully customize. Choose your colors, your favorite fabrics, preferred designs — it’s the best! That’s why we love today’s feature project so much.
Angela Pingel reached out to us not long after we launched EZ-Steam® II. She had a great idea for backing a bookcase in fabric and thought it would be the perfect product for the job. Turns out she was right! Take a peek at her custom bookcase below and make sure to click through for the simple how-to. The only question now is what fabric will you choose to feature in your space?
Fabric Backed Bookcase
This project allows you to transform any ordinary bookcase into a complete custom piece using just one product, EZ-Steam® II, and your favorite fabric. Let your imagination guide you and create a one of a kind piece for the perfect spot in your home.
