The BILLY bookcase is pretty straightforward to build right out of the box , or you can get creative and make elaborate storage that looks great. The ScrapHacker had four BILLY bookcases left over from his poor student days, but they were not a good fit for his grown-up apartment. Did he kick them to the curb? Thanks to new-and-improved production methods, the BILLY bookcase costs less today than it did when it launched in However, savvy penny-pinchers like Noz Nozawa know you can buy these affordable shelving units at bargain basement prices in gently used condition on Craigslist. Stores like Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel sell glass-front bookshelves for thousands of dollars.
This week I spend a lot of time giving new life to an old, dark, outdated bookcase. We got this bookcase a few years ago, and although it has been extremely functional, it completely lacked visual appeal. Fortunately, it was really sturdy and provided a great base to work with to create something sort of new! Here it is: dark wood grain , chipped veneer, sticker remnants and all. The first thing I did was scrape the veneer from the front edges of the bookcase.
Our kitchen is large and has lots of wall space, but lacks cabinet and counter space. I already added a DIY island , which helps enormously with food prepping, but I still needed a pantry. So I took two free bookshelves you can read more about them here and turned them into a pantry. The first thing I did was stain the outside of the bookshelves the same color as my kitchen cabinets. This stuff is amazing. I used it on my kitchen and bathroom cabinets, over three years ago, and the stain is holding up great. Another favorite of mine is the General Finishes Polyacrylic top coat.
A full bookcase is a happy bookcase, but sometimes you do not want everyone to see what exactly you are reading. Your stash of Harlequin.

When Brooke wrote me asking to draw up plans for a bookshelf inset inside a door, I couldn't wait to draw plans. How exciting, a secret door, a door behind a bookshelf! Or just adding extra storage to a room with rarely used doors. Yep, that's a door! And the door opens! Here is from Brooke: Good Afternoon! My husband and I have finished up the bookcase and cannot be happier with the result.
