i love books but finding a book case to fit them all is always a challenge. but i’m loving andrew’s solution for paperbacks. it maxs out the space, without taking too much of it.
andrew needed a shallow book case for paperbacks in a narrow hallway. instead of using the ubiquitous billy, andrew measured the borghamn height extender for size and it fitted perfectly. (note: link is to the media storage combo. can’t find the link to the height extender only)
“i used the posts and plates meant to attach the height extender to the borghamn base to instead stack two of the height extenders. if it wasn’t for a window shutter in the way, i’d add another one or two shelves for more paperback storage.”
