From BILLY to BABY
Materials: Billy, Komplement
Description: This is the story : our first baby was born about 4 months ago, so it was time that her room was set up. There was a corner available to install a wardrobe and I wanted it to fit perfectly. So I started looking at all the models on the Ikea website (I’ve made several hacks before in my former apartments and didn’t know your site by then) and they were all at least 50 cm deep. My corner only could accept 40, so I had to make something up : There is one deep (40 cm) and wide (80 cm) Billy bookcase that would have fitted perfectly but it isn’t made for clothes.
So I cut a Komplement clothes rail to the right size, I changed the handles for others that I had, added a few baskets and Voila!
