Materials: Billy bookcases, Blecka hooks, Byholma baskets, Tosig soft toy frog
I made my entryway cubbies using four white IKEA BILLY bookcases (15 3/4 x11 x79 1/2″).
I assembled each bookcase according to the instructions, but without installing the middle shelf.
Using a 4.5″ baseboard, I cut four 11-inch wide pieces and attached them to the bookcases.
I then screwed the Blecka double hooks to the middle of each board.
Removing a small section of the corner baseboard, I placed the first bookcase flush with the wall, securing the top shelf to a stud and repeating the same process. All four bookcases are held together using wood screws driven through the pin holes.
Finally, I applied some white caulk to both ends to hide any gaps between the bookcases and the wall.
