Before & After: Boring IKEA Billy Bookshelf to Rad Reading Bench

All Things Campbell

The great thing about Ikea's Billy bookshelf is that it's an inexpensive, versatile storage unit for any age — the downside is when you'd like it to be a bookshelf for kids but the height and reach is too much for little arms.

Leave it to Lisa Campbell to fix that! She just turned it on its side, so that it not only holds books safely, it doubles as a bench! She added some decorative trim, secured the shelves, and sewed a cushion for the top. Now her little one's books are accessible, and all within reach!
