Reeded glass IKEA billy bookcase hack


Good morning guys. I've got SO much to share from our home renovation (and life in general) but I thought I'd get you up to date with my latest DIYs before I deep dive into reno chat! 

It will come as no surprise that today's DIY is an IKEA hack. I think we can all remember a time when we owned a Billy bookcase right? well, this will be my third one and I wanted to give it a new lease of life. 

I adore reeded glass cabinets, and this is a great way to achieve the look of a high-end one at a fraction of the cost. I've used window film and a quick paint job to transform the look of a standard IKEA bookcase. 

Materials used:

Reeded glass film
BIN primer (the only one I'd recommend for painting IKEA surfaces)
Brass door handles

You can find the full reeded glass tutorial here and trust me when I say this glass film is top-notch (not like the antiquated patterned privacy film that you may have seen in the past!)

Let me know what you think..

Back soon
