Before & After: Jenny's Built-in IKEA Billy Bookshelves

Before & After: Jenny's Built-in IKEA Billy Bookshelves

Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook consistently executes beautiful DIY projects with precision and flair. Most recently, she and her family used Ikea's Billy bookshelves in combination with lumber, mouldings, and spray paint to create a custom look at a non-custom cost.

Jenny has slowly been revealing updates to her New York home, and these shelves give the living room a sophisticated feel that's still young and fun. It looks so good! Given the fit of the shelves, improved with Ikea's extender option, and the shiny black mouldings, you wouldn't guess this project started with something from that ubiquitous Swedish store. The crown molding they installed elevates the whole look even more.
