Deep bookcase are versatile furniture that can be used to help you create the look that you want in your living room or bedroom. Whether you have a new wooden bookshelf that you want to decorate, or you have an older bookshelf that requires some work, use decorative details that will help you get the most out of this useful furniture.
Agonizing a wooden deep bookcase gives it a comfortable worn look. Apply a coat of flat paint to the shelves and then rub a layer of paste wax to the shelves. Apply a layer of wood glaze on the paste-wax and allow it to dry overnight. Use 100 grit sandpaper to distress the corners of the bookcase and to wear off patches of color. To preserve the distressed tree afterward, apply a coat of protective sealant.
If the sides of the deep bookcase are not pushed against a wall, use the sides to hang decorative objects. Use small objects so the narrow surface from becoming overwhelmed. You can select a single object or select several smaller objects. A series of very small framed photos can fit this space, or you can choose a small painting or print to hang.
