This hutch lives in the space between my living room and my dining area.
I love the rich color and its slim profile. I use the upper hutch portion for both book storage (my penguin hardcover classics, LOVE!) and to display decorative items. For a while now I have felt something was off or missing. I decided the back was too dark and some of the items weren’t “popping” against it the way I would like them too.
I decided to add fabric to the back of the shelves to add some visual interest. I wanted to make them easily removable so I could change them out when I change the look of the room or if the hutch ever moves to another room.
I started by measuring the back panels. Then I purchased 2 pieces of foam poster board and cut them to size. I cut my fabric and just used clear packing tape to secure it after wrapping it around. Then I was done, they just needed to be popped in. $10 and 10 minutes and I think it gives a nice update to the hutch. Plus I love that I can easily change it whenever I feel like it.
