Transform Ikea's BILLY Bookcase Into Functional Built-In Office Desk
Ikea furniture is many people’s go-to for modifications, such as this DIY hack that’ll turn the classic BILLY bookcase into storage compartments for your home office desk.
For this hack, you’ll need two without doors that fit the space between your desk and the ceiling. Ensure the bookcases fit properly in the area for a more put-together look.
If you have a narrow corner to work with, get two tall, thin Ikea BILLY bookcase shelves, but if you have a wider wall for your desk area, you can get broader bookcases.
Paint the bookcases to match your home office desk and the room’s décor in order to make the pieces feel elegant and give the entire desk a custom-fit appearance.
Once you’ve fixed them securely to the wall, the bookcases are ready to hold all your belongings and decorative items.
