Project Description add commentupload similar

We had a lot of stuff out all over the apt that needed to be put.  So we bought this modular Ikea Billy Bookcase.  It holds LOTS of stuff.  What I like about it is that we could build it to our needs - we choose to put to full panel doors on the bottom and the extra hutch on top.   It holds a lot and it's relatively sturdy.  Be nice to your Ikea furniture, keep the screws tight, and it will be nice back to you.
