Workroom Sad Face

Billy Bookcases

The bookshelves are delayed again and I am getting annoyed. Well, I was already annoyed, but now I am more annoyed. Pandemic. Supply chain. First world problems. Blah blah blah. I know. I know.

Scandinavian Designs has some very basic bookcases, which might be a good solution if they are in stock. They do not have the added height shelf that the Billy bookcases have. Also, one thing I like about the Billy set is the accommodation at the bottom for the baseboard. There is a little cut out so you don’t have a gap against the wall. Also, apparently, they no longer have white in stock and I refuse to introduce anything even approaching life-sucking beige into this room. Finally, they are much more expensive. On the plus side, we have an entertainment unit from Scandinavian Designs and we are very happy with it.

Why hasn’t anyone tried to copy the Billy bookcases? I know I should be promoting intellectual property theft. I really want the chaos in my house to end.

  1. Oh I feel your pain! We’ve been waiting on a replacement mattress for over a month here. Same issues as you shelves…covid shipping/supply chain messes.

    They DO sound like they are worth the wait though. Unless perhaps you and your Mr want to start a new business? hahaha

    Hope they show up soon Jaye. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I hope so, too.

      I have seriously thought about getting someone to make shelves for me.I know it would cost more, which is a con, but I might get better fitting shelves. I have to decide how long I am willing to wait.

      No new business ventures for us.
