A Bookcase Named Billy

I love Ikea, though I don't necessarily love going to Ikea - mostly for the same reasons as The Lancashire Hotpots:


So today a van brought Ikea to us. We both have a lot of books and stuff, and even though we already had four full size Billys they were crammed to capacity. A ordered another three full size bookcases and a little half size Billy for his 'man cave' (i.e. the dining room). I got a half size Billy too for the living room. You can't beat a Billy, even though getting the backs to slide in properly is always a faff.

The ever growing collection of Dr Who merchandise...

We also bought two LACK side tables (£5 each!), three TJENA boxes with compartments (perfect for storing Re-ment miniatures), two huge GARNITYR boxes to house Christmas decs and suchlike, and a whole bunch of FLYT magazine files for A's comics.

The living room.

Returning to the subject of Billy, I recently found out Ikea made a limited number of 1/6 scale Billy bookcases and other furniture like LACK and IVAR to be given out as staff Christmas presents a few years back. You can read more about them HERE. I haven't even bothered looking how much they sell for these days, it will only depress me!
