With Detail and Care Built In Bookshelves

The pleasures of beautiful workmanship can be seen in this wonderful built-in bookcase. It appears that it has always existed in the house, but that is not the case. Using three Ikea bookshelves Gwen from The Makerista hired a professional carpenter to come in and make them appear built in.


They did not want to remove the original molding so they figured out how to layer molding around the base of the bookshelf to make it seamless. Knowing that they were going to have a ladder slide, the bookshelves were secured in place to the wall behind it. This amazing transformation using simple bookcases from Ikea will inspire you in your own home. The quality and handmade craftsmanship of the molding and overall design will add value.

Do you want built-in bookcases but think they are too expensive to construct from scratch. This idea using the Ikea Billy Bookcase will have you measuring the walls in your home before you even finish reading this article.
