Materials: Billy, molding, wallpaper, paint

Description: A ten year old Billy, boring but still going strong got another ten years of glamor filled life by being turned into a built-in.

By adding mdf and crown molding the bookcase was extended up to the ceiling.

More molding was used to decorate the edges and make 'fake' supports.

Beadboard wallpaper gives the impression of a real beadboard back.

White paint ties it all in.

Full tutorial for the Billy built in.
