Hey all, hope you had a fun Halloween yesterday! My mister and I spent the weekend tackling a storage solution we’ve been meaning to get to for some time. Up in our little guest studio above the garage (affectionately nicknamed the ‘Garage Mahal’) we finally built ourselves a wall of bookcases to store books and other collectibles.
Years ago, we set up a makeshift media center in the space with some small wood bookcases and a coffee table to hold our dinosaur TV. We finally decided to donate that TV and change the wall to serve a different purpose. I’ve been thinking about IKEA’s Billy bookcases for years, but I was always disappointed with their 11” depth. In October, IKEA release a 15” deep Billy bookcase which finally sold me on the wall to wall bookcase project I’ve been thinking about for years. At last, it’s finally finished!
So long old media center . . .
. . . hellooooo built in bookcases!
I am in love! I’ve wanted a wall of built in bookcases for years, people, years! We finally made it happen for under $400 and in about 7 hours.
We started with four of these 15 inch deep Billy bookcases from IKEA:
