Back to the shelves. They are in my family room here at #ProjectLemonade. I painted the vintage Weiman cabinets a custom blue black color that looks amazing. I did nothing to the backs of the shelves because I was

I remembered seeing somewhere an inexpensive faux grasscloth available at Lowes.

I immediately got to work when I got home. I simply measured the back of my shelves and then marked the measurements on the back of my wallpaper.

I added strips of the mounting tape around the edges of the back.
I started from the top and removed the backing off of the tape as I rolled the paper downwards.
