Freelancer console

Materials: Billy bookshelf

Description: First you may need to saw the upper part of the furniture to get the length needed (once turned into a console), we sawed about 1/4 of it.

Position the shelves where you want them, then use 2×2 screws per shelves so they can stay vertically.

You can reuse the top of Billy to gain an extra shelf, we added it horizontally in the middle bookcase and maintained it with 2×2 screws.

One layer of melamine special undercoat, then two layers of blue/gray paint.

Add 4 small castors and fill the new console with your stuff !
