I’m a fan of the IKEA Billy bookcase having used him to make built-ins in 2011, created some shelving in this awesome playroom, sidled him up next to a Besta in my office, and for the fourth time we’ve again partnered together. I decided to dress them up with a little crown molding to give them a more custom built-in feel. Crown molding wouldn’t work for us because we didn’t have enough wall space for the crown to sit. Pushing back all of the molding on the top of the bookshelf would have looked weird.
Adding this crown moulding also made the bookcase even taller bonus!.

I’ve seen it done with billy bookcases but not hemnes. To finish off the tops, we added some crown molding which was much easier than we anticipated. Billy bookcases from IKEA and adding some crown and baseboards to them.
