Hemnes display cabinet

Materials: Hemnes bookcase

Description: Modification of the Hemnes bookcase in to display cabinet.

All this project comes from the need of a display cabinet for my figure collection. There were a few concepts that I had pretty clear at the time of chosing a display cabinet. The front had to be glass, without frames, or with a very thin frame, so it wouldn't cover any figure. The sides, it had to be glass too, so the inside wouldn't be too dark, and because it was near a door and it would be ugly to see a wood side when you entered the room. The rest of the furniture of my house, are colonial style (banak), and I didn't want one who didn't match, so the colour should be similar.

After seeing several possibilities, all of them very expensive, I put my eye on the Hemnes bookcase. It's not exactly what I was looking for, but I saw a few possibilities. I was looking in Ikea the possibility of disabling the sides. In fact, I talk to them by phone asking for this possibility but they said it was too difficult. I also dismissed at that moment the doors that came with this kind of bookcases because they have huge frames that cover 20cm of the front side and this is terrible for my beloved figures.
