I’m not convinced this qualifies as an Ikea hack so much as an Ikea tweak. Either way, I wanted a large something to fill up some space in my new and sparse dining room. I’d decided to be utilitarian about it and use something useful: a bookcase! Or rather, bookcases. Since I keep getting questions about how I got them all to look like customized built-ins, I thought I’d do a photo walk through right here on my blog.
Edit 1/12/2014: The bookcases are still holding up strong and I haven’t had any stability problems with using the Ikea provided backing!
