Besta Billy Office Hackeroni..

Materials: Besta, Perfekt Abstrakt, Billy

Description: OK so I didn’t like the regular Ikea office selection when I wanted to create a home office.  I set out to make something white and shiny..woo..wee!

I combined glossy Besta shelving and glossy Perfekt Abstrakt kitchen cover panels for the counter..then used Billy bookcases trimmed out for a finished look.

Besta bookcases aren’t really deep enough for a office counter so I built out the counter with 2×6′s..that also gave me something very solid to hang the Besta off of with the Besta railings..

I filled any gaps with spare gloss panels and ran a couple of surge bars behind the cabinets for printers and lighting.

Then cut to size the cover panels for the counter (well..I wanted a shiny top too)..

Then I put up the Billy cabinets.  I raised them up with 2×4′s since I wanted the baseboard to be the same level of the ones on the wall for a built in look..

I trimmed them out for a built in custom look..

Add some LED light under the floating cabinets and an Ikea wall map and we’re all set..
