For this weeks DIY Inspired Space post, we have a delightful DIY Built-In Shelves makeover that doubles as an IKEA hack. The girls at Eleven Magnolia Lane have transformed a room in the most magnificent of ways using the Billy Bookcases from IKEA. I have had many inquires about our library shelves, which were custom made for our home. Having them custom made is a very expensive process, and this hack is a perfect low cost alternative to that. Hope you enjoy this makeover as much as I did.
DIY Built-In Shelves – An IKEA Hack
Looking at this before picture, it is nearly impossible for me to picture just how fantastic this room will become with such a simple makeover. Always exciting to begin with a clean blank space.
Even at this point with the shelves in place as below, I found it difficult to picture how this transformation will come together.
With some clever thinking and a little carpentry, which I firmly believe that even a novice DIYer could have a go at, those shelves transformed from the ugly duckling they were to this gorgeous swan! Perfectly styled to accentuate the design.
Such a wonderful space, with an incredibly simple and DIY transformation. Perhaps this could be something you could try? If you would like to know more about the “how”, head on over to this post on Eleven Magnolia Lane.
