I am sure most of us somewhere in our apartments, homes, or condos have these Billy Bookcases from Ikea. And we agree that these bookcases are functional but so boring to look at.
While I was reading my new Style at Home (the Canadian mag I mentioned a few weeks back) they show a great way to dress up that blah bookcase.
In the photo they purchased Billy Doors - attached small rods to the top and bottom of the inside of the doors (or you can use a staple gun for a quick fix), and displayed Damask looking fabric in which they cut the fabric larger than the door to create a gathered look.
Now you can show off those Billy Bookcases in any room of your home!
