Billy Bookshelves Kitchen Island

Materials: Billy bookcases and Numerar countertop

Description: We took down a wall between our kitchen and living room and created a room divider/island with Billy bookcases and Numerar butcher block countertop.

We covered the back of the bookcases with beadboard and trimmed the whole thing with moulding from a big box store.

We allowed the butcher block to hang over the back side, supported by corbels. We now have a bar height seating area. On the kitchen side, we’ve added lots of open shelf storage.
