how to add doors to a skinny billy
here’s one from yong kang of singapore who found a way to plump up a skinny billy and add doors.
“i had a 60cm (approx 2′) wide billy bookcase for quite sometime (they don’t sell the 60cm version anymore over here at ikea singapore).
when i first caught sight of the billy nyckelby, i told myself i really have to put that on my bookcase.
the problem is that the width of the doors is 40cm (approx 16″). then, an idea struck me, i could attach a benno cd tower (20 cm wide, approx 8″) next to it to make up the total width of 80cm.
so i purchased the benno cd tower. new screws were attached for added stability.
