IKEA Billy Bookcase Makeover

Crate furniture on Feb 19, 2016
I recently took part in a bookcase challenge and made over a plain white IKEA Billy bookcase. I wanted to give it a modern look with vibrant color, so that's exactly what I did! I added a new top and some trim to the bottom to dress it up, and I patched over the holes inside of the bookcase. I used a HomeRight Finish Max paint sprayer to coat it in high-gloss green paint, and I added birch tree wallpaper to the back. Then, I had fun styling the shelves!
