Make a built-in from your old Ikea Billy Bookcase. It looks great and the DIY is easy and perfect for beginners.
Assemble your Billy bookcase and as many extensions that you need to come close to the ceiling
Measure the height and width of the gaps above and next to your bookcase. Cut pieces of MDF to close the gaps. Add crown moulding to create a finished look.
Fill in any gaps and seams with caulk. Don't forget to fill in the telltale holes in the sides of the bookcase too.
Adhere wallpaper to the back (optional). Prime and paint the bookcase.
