Inspiration Snapshot: DIY Bookcase Makeover

How fabulous is this bookcase?! It was transformed from a simple white piece of furniture to a stylish statement piece by blogger Sarah Gunn, just by using a stencil + paint (and a little patience)! I thought it was wallpaper at first glance, but she used a stencil from Royal Design Studio. Click here to see the before & after and click here for step-by-step instructions. Have you used stencils on any decorating projects? The wheels are spinning in my head on what I could do with some paint and a cool stencil around my apartment...


  1. Wow this is an amazing bookcase! I currently have on my DIY bookcase but I love the idea of a stencil. That probably would have been a lot easier to do. I might re-do it!

  2. I love this look! I am currently working with a client and we are trying to decide if we are doing wall paper or stencil with her built in shelving. The stencil is definitely less expensive!

  3. I love patterned paper on the back of furniture it looks so much better.
    Im digging in the new website layout it looks great :D

  4. Beautiful, it came out really good from blank to totally eye catching!

  5. WOW! what a great idea
    got to give it a try!
    thank you x
