We have built-ins in our living room and I would love to paint them white, but I'm thinking we'll just leave them as is for now. Instead, I'd like to spruce up the back of the shelves with some color. I'm not sure if I want to paint the backs or use a pattern or wallpaper. Here are some photos that are inspiring me right now. First up are some painted bookcases and then some with patterns/wallpaper.
