Create A DIY Built-In Home Bar With This Ikea Billy Bookcase Hack
Ikea's iconic Billy bookcase can be repurposed for many DIY projects, including one that will make your home bar more stylish and functional.
TikTok user @mrsbb1975 set up two Billy bookcases to frame their home bar, highlighting taller liquor bottles around the middle and shorter bottles at the bottom.
The bottles are kept safely on the shelf behind a collection of Oxberg glass doors. The bookcases bookend the counter space, framing the rich greenery on the sink and shelves.
Ikea's Billy bookcases have a classic look that can be intertwined with almost any design style, and their affordable price point will help you cut costs.
The particle board shelves of the Billy bookcase can curve under heavy weight, but you can fix this by installing several vertical pieces of board in the middle of the shelf.
