I have this in a natural wood color. The back fabric/paper is old and dirty. It's sort of fuzzyish. I'm not sure how to get it off (don't want to ruin the wood) but I can't figure out what else to do. Any ideas?

If it's paper glued on the back of the frame, pick off what you can and sand off the rest. If it's fabric, I'm not sure other than trying to gradually soak the glue loose and peel it off.

If its fabric maybe you could vacuum it clean using an attachment unless it's stained then I'd try carpet cleaner (test on an inconspicuous spot first).  If it's paper just use an exacto knife to cut it off as close to the frame as you can get and re-paper it.

It is that paper stuff. And it's glued. EVERYWHERE...every little piece of wood. So here is my plan for this weekend. I'm going to tape off the outside edges of all three big pieces. Then I'm going to do a light spray of white paint. Just to sort of 'clean' it up. And finally put an uplight of string of lights behind it. It won't be the same as when it was new and you could really see the panes but it will be relatively quick and painless. Will post pix Monday.
