If you're looking for a little inspiration on how to put your own stamp on store-bought furniture and lighting, check out my story in the Easy Decorating issue from Woman's Day this month.


For starters, take the Billy bookcase from IKEA. 


He's a great basic but a little plain Jane if you ask me. To dress him up, find a fabric you love—I used this modern geometric from Calico Corners—and adhere it to foam-core cut to fit the inside backs of the bookcase. 


Use foam tape on the backs of the boards to adhere them, and you're set!


That's a good boy Billy.


And when you're bored, simply swap out the fabric for a new one, and Billy gets a whole, new look. For detailed directions, pick up the Easy Decorating issue of Woman's Day on newsstands now!
