Antique'd Ikea Billy Bookcase

Materials: Billy bookcase

Hey! New to Ikea Hackers, figured I’d share my first attempt at adding a little artistry to a standard birch Ikea bookcase. I couldn’t find a old fashioned looking and affordable bookcase that could fit in the tight space between my dining room doorway and living room closet so I decided to transform a cheap Ikea bookcase into the one I had in mind.
