Organize your living room and make IKEA built ins for books, toys, and electronics with billy bookcases! Add trim, doors, hardware, and a top for a custom look.
IKEA Built Ins: Living Room Storage
We put a narrow Billy bookcase and a wide Billy bookcase from Ikea side by side and attached them together. Then we added doors over the wide bookcase as well as handles. For a custom look, my husband trimmed them out, mounted them to the wall, and added a top with a ledge that matched our fire place.
A couple of coats of paint over the top and trim, and we had a custom organizational piece!
We made two of them. One for toys, and one for electronics.
The other built in houses the DVD player, Wii, remotes, and the kids’ Kindles. (We keep a baby lock over the handles to keep little man out.)
