Home study

 

Hi,

 

Ever heard of Ikea Hack?

Having the BILLY bookcases (all sizes) for a long time gave it my stamp of approval of a very good quality/worth every penny/value for money product.

Now, 

Regardless of how much extra space for an office we have in our homes, Bookcases can fit almost anywhere, Living rooms, Hallways, Bedrooms, even Kitchens (don't try the bathroom!), But for me, having a certain room for study or work is essential.

Here's the things I did to change the BILLY Bookcase to this look.

 

 

First

Assemble the bookcase according to instructions, I did not fit the back board as i wanted the grey paint to show behind the books.

1. Decide on the design

I choose a wide softwood for the sides and a thin one for the top and bottom of the bookcase.
