How to make a Built-in from an Ikea Billy Bookcase
Everyone knows Billy, dont you. He has been a house guest in many homes all over the world for 30 years now. All in all about 41 million Billys have been produced and Ikea still makes about 3.1 million of them each year. Well this particular Billy was at least 10 years old, but still going strong. Just plain boring, like Billy kinda is. But it fit perfectly just behind the bed in our tiny guest room. So I wanted to keep it but make it look a bit less, yeah what, ugly I guess.
So this is what I did. First I went to the clearance section at Ikea and bought myself two extensions to put on top of the Billy. I didnt care about the color because I knew Id be painting it anyway.
