When renovating my basement I knew I wanted a wall of built ins. Keeping my budget in mind I created that feature using IKEA bookshelves from the Hemnes line. Visit www.no29design.com for more details, pictures and ideas!
Cost: $2000

Before any work was begun we finished our semi finished basement. Overhead lighting, storage closets and a laundry room were all added to the space. Since this would be the family room I wanted lots of storage as well as display space, and don’t forget the television!

Once the major construction was complete I had a 17 foot wall to create a storage and media unit. I measured about 20 times to make sure I had it right and then purchased 5 pieces from the IKEA Hemnes line.

I purchased units to hold books, games, movies and music. The display shelves hold baskets as well as accessories.

The bookshelves were spaced out to cover the entire 17 foot wall, then finished off with trim and soffits. The gaps between each unit aren’t noticeable with the trim and a fresh coat of white paint.

The space where the wall mounted tv was to be hung was finished with a board and batten pattern to match the rest of the room.

Shelf liner was added to the back of the bookshelves. This helps add some texture to a whole wall of white!

I now have a huge storage and display wall. It is the focal point of the entire room.

    I love the finished product, but it is hard to match the spaces pictured in the before and after. There is a door pictured in the after that may be to the stairs, but then there seems to be the new wall unit is not as deep as the picture portrays

      Looks like they may have tightened the space and put a closet or built in storage room where those doors are. I see what you mean though, it does look deceiving at first.
