Billy-Benno Corner Bookshelves

Materials: Billy Bookshelves, Benno DVD Tower

Billy has corner bookshelves combo. However it doesn’t fit in my root neatly.

So what I did is to use Benno DVD tower as corner shelf. Billy corner hardware can be used as is.

I also put on height extension. However, Benno DVD tower doesn’t have height extension. I have to use 15 3/4″ Billy height extension and cut narrower. Benno tower is also shallower then Billy. So I have to use the left over of back board to fill up the rear bottom half of the narrowed Billy (now Benno) height extension.

It looks great and fit in my room perfectly.

    You said “However, Benno DVD tower doesn’t have height extension. I have to use 15 3/4″ Billy height extension and cut narrower.”

    I’m curious if there is a reason why you used the Billy for height extension instead of getting a second Benno and cutting that?

    Thanks for posting! We were thinking of using the Benno for the corner, and found your post while searching to see if it could be done.

    can you give me the exact length of this combo? From end to wall. I’ve got 122cm on each wall to use. I think maybe this solution might work.

  3. Most of the houses nowadays lack spaces. So this type of corner shelf will definitely create more spaces virtually. This will also be useful for keeping books and other things.
