IVAR "Good Old Days" Bookcase

Materials: IVAR, decorative moulding, mdf, paint

Description: A boring corner next to our two-wing bedroom door had to be pimped. Ivar fitted perfectly in there, but it needed some old fashioned look to go with the 19th century door. The Ivar skeletal structure is 30cm deep and 226cm high. We placed a mdf panel on the sides and on the top. After that we painted it in the same colour like our wall.
