Goodbye ugly ikea bookshelf!

My IKEA Kallax bookshelf is about 8 years old. It’s boring, blah BUT in great shape. As I redecorate my home, I wanted to add some extra seasoning to my bland office using the furniture I already have!

With a some extra pieces and a little elbow grease, I turned my $89 IKEA bookshelf into something z gallerie is charging $800+ for.

Here is a list of everything I used (and similar products I was able to find)
Ikea Kallax (White)
Furniture Feet
Rust-Oleum Gold spray paint
Ikea Kallax Shelving Units Insert with Door
Electric drill
gold handle pulls
Golden Overlays:
(Silver is available on amazon))
– Gold vase (purchased mine from Burlington) similar one: https://amzn.to/2BChgoo
