Rustic Billy Bookcase

$1,145.85

This rustic bookcase is designed to fill your living room with the feeling of 50 years of charm. Unlike a generic IKEA billy bookcase, this one has so much more character. What you see is a unique piece that embodies the life of old. The old days of growing up before there were iPads, and before gadgets invaded our lives. This is a living treasure where books were repeatedly added and removed causing the paint to wear away in the days when books were made of paper and you couldn't have enough of them.

Over time, this piece would have traveled between farmhouses, sold at an auction, and then perhaps would have sat quietly for years in an old barn where the weather would have had its way of warping the wood, and causing the paint to peel and crackle at the bottom as the wood's thirst was quench by the moistened floor beneath its girth. Finally, after years of the shadows, someone rediscovered it and gave it a second chance to use its rustic charm.

This bookcase is about life, love, neglect, and a chance to love again. A chance to be there for you as you proudly display life's treasures, and fill its shelves with books with cracked spines and yellow, tattered pages. It wants to live on, and it wants to live with you.

The rear of this piece is quite pretty, so you can even use it to partially divide a room. There is simply no feature about this bookcase that you need to hide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to pay an import tax when receiving goods when shipping from the UK?

You will need to pay import tax if your goods are valued at $800 or more. I will only sell items internationally where I know the value is less than $800 to keep shopping from my shop easy.

Does your ladder shelf come assembled?

It comes flat-packed in a box and is partially assembled. You will need to loosen 1 screw on each side of the shelf, rotate them into place, and then insert and tighten the provided screws. Get a glass of wine and take 20 minutes to assemble.

How much weight can I put on the ladder shelves?

The shelf is robust and will hold a fair amount of weight, but not designed for extremely heavy objects. Books, bowls, potted plants, and things of that nature are all perfectly fine.
