A DIY enthusiast has shown off the incredible result of her creativity and hard work after overhauling IKEA bookcases.
Tamara Smith, who posts on TikTok as @mygrandparentschair, shares tips and advice for updating and transforming furniture and home interiors and wanted to make more of her bookcase.
In a now-viral TikTok video, the thrifty mum-of-three explained how she’d had the IKEA Billy bookcases for a while and had been moving them from room to room.
Prior to the DIY project, Tamara decided that they needed a permanent home, and chose to get creative with how she decorated them, transforming the dull shelves into chic alcove units.
In posts on her Instagram page, Tamara reveals how she built the Billy bookshelves into the wall and added arches to the front of each one, before painting the interior.
The project appeared to be spread over a period of time, with the mum gradually working on the incredible upgrade.
The end result is incredible; the bookshelves look incredibly striking thanks to the contrasting dark and light paint that has been used.
The fantastic transformation left TikTok impressed, with one user tagging a friend and commenting: “the after is incredible”.
While another said: “I love the look of the black shelves”.
