This makes me ridiculously happy. And knowing that it's home waiting for me sends me over the moon. (yep - I'm a dork.)
Let it be said that Matt did most of the work, and is seriously roxor.
Also, cookbooks don't have a place yet. [le sigh]
OMG that is INCREDIBLE! so beautiful..all those books :)
That bookshelfbeast is FANTASTIC! You may have inspired me to get my books organized and under control . . .
Ok that bookshelf is totally sweet. I am especially impressed that you added lights AND hooked them into the home automation. I am really looking forward to a post about all that in your home automation.
I am totally drooling over that!!!!
mmmm...books and ikea. I am drooling. Great work guys.
Just thought I would finally pop in and say HI again. I googled Autoworld for a guy at work and I end up here. Nice bookshelf! I could really use one of those for all my crap! Very inspiring.
that bookshelf is beautiful. i am so jealous.
Oh I'd recognize Billy anywhere! Should I be embarassed to admit I have about 7 of those things in various configurations around the house? Yes, I probably should... I have one in the dining room holding the Fiesta ware. Yes, it is a thing of beauty!
So, can you give us the part break down? Share the Ikea love, please.
Since you're curious, here is a breakdown of the pieces 'n' parts that we used to make the giant bookshelf.
4 Billy Byom Doors (76" h)
4 Billy Byom Doors (13" h)
2 Billy Height Extension units (32" w)
2 Billy Bookcases (32" w)
1 Billy Bookcase (16" w)
and 2 packs of little round accent-y light things that I can't find on ikea.com.
