Updated bookcase

The first few weeks of my new year have been awesome. I did a lot of updates on my room and I’m continuing to do a few more. I’ll be posting all about them over the next week or so!
One of the first projects I worked on in the new year was updating this bookcase I got a few years back from Ikea.
It’s an okay bookcase, but in recent years Ikea has been making their furniture better and sturdier. Of course, I bought this bookcase before that happened. So the back kept falling out…
I kind of hated the plain white back anyway, and wanted to do something with it. I found some great contact paper at Marshalls for $5.00. I stole some plywood from my dad’s garage to make a new, sturdy back and cleaned out the clutter and dressed it up all pretty!
