Billy cupboard doors

Materials: Two Billy bookcase

Description: We wanted a clean front for our Billy bookcase because we could not bear to see the contents anymore.


However, we did not like the original doors, we looked for some other ones and found them at a hardware store. But there were no holes for the hinges and the knob, indeed.


After we’re done, the bookcases really looked like a cupboard and the doors fit more then all other cupboards in our apartment :-D
