best paint for ikea furniture


  1. Sister, I’m thanking you from the bottom of my heart for this post!! I, naturally, found a tiktok and decided to do this and it didn’t have anywhere near the detail we needed to complete it. This saved many an argument and headache! Beautiful work and such a great tutorial!

  2. Hi Courtney!! YAY! That truly makes my night. I totally KNOW the feeling when you see an amazing DIY with little to no instructions. Thank you for the sweet comment <3

  3. Hey queen, how would using a 2×4 at the seems helped with the cracking? I’m about to start my shelves and want to avoid that

  4. Hi Elisha!
    This is amazing and I’m going to base mine off of this, however mine needs doors.
    How would I go about that with the arch?

  5. My space accommodates a regular sized Billy bookcase and one narrow bookcase. Do you think that it would look too off balance?

  6. Hi Hanna! Thank you so much! I don’t have any experience with arched doors- i’m so sorry! But another option would be to get ikea doors for the shelves on the bottom half of the bookcases!

  7. Hi Meila! Oh that’s so tough! I would try to get a visual if you could draw it to scale! Maybe you could even do 3 of the narrow ones?!

  8. Amazing inspiration for these Billy bookcases! Honestly, I am blown away. Do you think this is doable on a carpeted room? Also curious, how long did this project take you? Thanks for such an in depth and articulate post!

  9. Hi Rachelle! Thank you so much for the kind words!! You could definitely do them in a room with carpet, I think you would just want to cut away the carpet that they’ll rest on! As far as time, It’s so hard to say because I work in increments, but the built-ins before I painting them probably took a couple busy weekends (full days) and then the painting you could finish in a few days as well! I was pretty surprise with how quickly I completed them! Hope that helps!

  10. Hi Elisha! Thank you for sharing your diy bookcase. Because of your detailed step by step method, I believe that I can definitely accomplish a similar project. I also appreciate that you took the time to meticulously document the process for the people ( like me) who work best when information is presented in an orderly manner. I am sure it was time consuming; and so I appreciate your effort even more. Please continue to present content of this standard. Looking forward to reviewing more of your projects and starting some of my own.

  11. Hi Erica! Ah, that makes me so happy to hear! Thank YOU for taking the time to leave this comment- it makes my day! Good luck on your project and always feel free to DM me on Instagram if you ever have questions! Cheers <3

  12. I SO appreciate the detail, photo & videos you posted. I am such a visual learner and many DIY posts skip steps which has left me confused. Very excited I found your page and I can’t wait to get started on this project!

  13. That totally makes my day!!! I’m so glad you found it helpful and feel free to DM me in Instagram if you have any questions 🙂 Thanks Elizabeth!!
