After we had built-in bookcases added to our living room, I had every intention of painting the backs. A year later, they’re still white. I can’t bring myself to decide on a color (green? yellow?) and given the number of shelves, I want to get it right the first time. I searched for papers that I could put up but no go. Then I stumbled across the blog Recently. Cut foam core to size, then paint and insert. Since it’s thicker than paper, it stays in place. No stickie tape or nothin’. If you’re in an apartment, have a stained piece you don’t want to paint, or just can’t make up your mind, like me, it seems like a perfect solution. â€” Sarah L.
