Use Pole Wrap To Turn Your Ikea Bookcase Into A Fluted Work Of Art
Although pole wrap was designed to wrap around basement poles to make them more attractive, the decorative sheet of pliable wooden slats can do the same for an Ikea Billy bookcase.
In a TikTok, user @cityfarmhouse paints arches into the glass panes of their signature Billy bookcase’s doors and adds pole wrap to the doors’ bottoms to create a fluted effect.
You can do the same if your Billy bookcase already has doors, but a standard Billy bookcase, which comes with fully open shelves, will require a few extra steps.
You can buy doors from Ikea, like the Billy/Oxberg ones, or create your own frame, which you can then affix the pole wrap to before attaching it to your Billy bookcase with hinges.
