Built in bookcases

I used four Billy bookcases (with extenders) from Ikea to install a wall of built in bookcases for my craft room. For a few hundred dollars, we have a custom look!
Ikea Billy bookcases turned into built in unit.
We slid the four bookcases into place and surrounded it with trim to build it in.
A thick crown molding added the final touch.
All gussied up with storage boxes and containers for my craft supplies
