quick and easy way to change the colour theme of your furniture
"i recently did my first ikea hack and i would like to share my idea. as i'm turning my whole house into a black and white scheme, my birch veneer billy didn't match anymore. i took the whole thing apart, and painted it. the outsides black and the shelves white (with black in the front).
then i glued wall paper at the back of the bookcase, put everything back together and... voila! billy was black and white! i only had to buy the wall paper, and as i didn't use all of it and i'm now using it to decorate other things in my house (i.e. my jewelry boxes which you can see in the pix below)."
