IKEA Billy bookcases + Lowe's kitchen wall cabinet + cut-to-fit shelf for seating + wainscoting = awesome entryway system for under $300.
Bookcase Buffet - When it comes to creating posh pieces of furniture for your dining room, think outside the box. Convert bookcases into a custom store-and-serve buffet. Using wall anchors, hang a pair of bookcases horizontally while placing a third on the floor directly below. Mount the middle bookcase at counter height so it can be used as a serving station.
Easy enough to make in 3 separate pieces that can travel the country with us and be re sized to one or two pieces as necessary.
Use tension rods to transform a bookcase into the perfect crafts and gift-wrapping station. I am telling you Better Homes & Gardens knows EVERYTHING! What a great idea, especially with the upcoming holidays!
