i love the idea of adding an interesting back panel to cabinets, so kimberly's hack on a plain pine stranda wardrobe (left) is really working for me.
first, she stained the pine black and layered on polyurethane. then, kimberly wrapped the fiberboard back with a few yards of vintage black and white print fabric. the wardrobe was then assembled as per instructions.
the final touches were the hardware on the doors - hammered, silver knobs from anthropologie. nice!
