- 1. CREATE A BEAUTIFUL WALL-TO-WALL DINING DISPLAY UNIT
Using Billy bookcases and Oxberg glass doors, Steph @henrikjunehome made this lovely wall-to-wall storage into an alcove. It required exacting measuring techniques, a lot of work, and creative ingenuity.
Steph started by ripping off the skirting boards in the alcove to build the unit. The hardest thing, according to her, was starting and ruining the perfectly good baseboards.
With the help of some leftover plywood, Steph created a robust base for the Billy bookcases and added a butcher block countertop.
With the help of studs, screws, and brackets constructed from scrap wood, she extended the depth of the built-in bookcases. The Billy bookcases and side panels were then inserted. She can store more items and be more organized thanks to the greater depth.
To give the storage a chic backdrop, Steph placed the shelves and adhered pieces of wood shiplap to the back panel. She painted the doors individually when the frame was finished and painted it white.
After they dried, she fastened them to the frame. After all that struggle, uncertainty, and hard work, Steph says, “It was totally worth it.”
