Double-Duty Room Divider

Transform inexpensive bookshelves.

Separate open-concept and multi-purpose rooms with clever "upholstered" bookshelves that act as a faux wall or even a headboard. Here, two inexpensive bookcases are capped with crown moulding for a custom-built look. The back side is “upholstered” with plywood panels covered in linen-look fabric and embellished with brass nailhead trim. Print out a materials list and step-by-step instructions to do this project.
