When I was debating which bookshelves to buy for my living room I did a search for Billy Bookcases and found some very cool examples of ways to make them look more colourful and custom.
You may or may not know this but what makes a custom bookshelf different from a cheap one is the shelves are thicker. They are usually two inches instead of one. Molding was added to the 4 Billy bookcases from IKEA in this image above and the colour certainly customizes it on it’s own. Now here’s an accent wall I would approve of 🙂
If you paint the back though you have to choose between adding colour with accessories or keeping them more neutral with a painted background.
