Custom-made bookshelf wall
Materials: Billy bookshelf
Description: When I moved in here I hade several old Billy shelves in a dark reddish colour that didn’t match the new place. I also needed more shelves than I had for all my books.
With some help I dismantled the shelves, and sawed away the part where the backside is. Doing this shelves and sides got the same depth. Also painted them white.
We then screwed the sides to the wall and added the shelves, to get more parts I bought Billy tops. Some of the shelves are placed using the old holes, other are screwed into place.
All that is missing is a list at the top to make it look built in.
