BILLY Bookcase overhead





Materials: BILLY Bookcase, BILLY extent units, saw, drill, ruler, level

Description: Afterwards we decide to installed a BILLY in a dead space in the rooms lobby; we bought a BILLY bookcase (200 cm x 80 cm x 28 cm) and 2 extended units, but the bookcase was 4 cm larger and 1,5 cm deeper that the space available to put it on; so the skillful husband cut the extra cm of the all bookcase, turned the BILLY height extended unit to frame it over the door and used the middle shelf to make the bottom exterior frame.

    Nice.
    May I ask why you didn’t use Cherry wood Billys?
    That would have looked stunning considering the door frame has reddish tones.
