DIY Built-In Bookcase Made From Ikea Billy Bookcases

Cool Idea: DIY Built-In Bookcases

Built-in bookcases are a great way to showcase all of your odds and ends, accessories, and, of course, books. But they're also an architectural feature that not everyone can afford to install — or are allowed to install in a rental. So I'm loving Rebecca of Loving Living Small's clever and affordable DIY built-in alternative. Instead of hiring a carpenter to outfit her gorgeous new pad with shelves, she headed down to Ikea and picked up four Billy bookcases to re-create the look of built-ins. In such a spacious room, it really works, and I adore all the lovely little vignettes she's created on her bookcase. Be sure to read more about her decorating project to find out how she did it! Have any of you tried something like this in your own home?

I also love the side table. So I found it. The good news is I found it. The bad news is it's expensive. Definitely an investment piece. I'm hoping I will be able to find something similar for like, $700 less.

I want to know the same thing... that mirrored side table is the best!
