It does the job DavidNice bookshelf. The baseboard cutout is too short and doesn’t work in my home, but overall the piece is nice and seems well constructed.
Just what I neededLauraI need a couple of inexpensive bookshelves to unload several boxes of books that have been sitting in a spare room for several years, and this fit the bill. Not the most attractive or structurally sound but for the price, it’s the perfect temp fix!
Lower End, Highest QualityScottI was hesitant at first upon the purchase. I stopped it the first time and but then placed the order after not finding anything else that I could piece together as i wanted to in order to fit my needs. The quality is much higher than i had expected. The simplicity of the manual and assembly are of the highest quality as well. Kudos to Ikea for taking the time to overpackage a product to ensure no damage. Delivery was a breeze, the gentleman were kind, placed everything where asked and took pics and quietly left.
Great!JoanEasy to assemble, looking good!
Sturdy, nice-looking bookshelfAeryllWe got this bookshelf to replace an older wire bookshelf that was too tall. This one is the perfect height to mount our TV over in our living room.
Affordable shelf unitLindaGreat little shelf unit for the money, and simple to assemble.
Little BillyCindiGreat product for the price
Love itJenniferBought 4 years ago and when I needed a new bookshelf after my divorce I knew exactly what I wanted!
Easy to assembleStephanieLight enough for a single person to carry to/from my car. Easy to assemble. Just needed a screwdriver and an Allen wrench, and maybe a hammer (or use the screwdriver to hammer in tack nails). My only issue is that one of the locking plastic pieces broke, but the shelf is sturdy enough to stay together with the 3 remaining pieces.
A second lovely boocasePeterThis is the second shorter Billy that I have purchased. But of course that just makes it fit different locations and also makes it easier to assemble.
Easy to assemble, just theBrianneEasy to assemble, just the right size.

Great book shelf!NicoleSturdy, affordable bookshelf. I own three of these.
Book 📚 shelf Thanga EswariToo good I love it . Easy fix
Billy are a great budget shelfLindaWe have some of these in one of our properties that is 20 years old. Just bought some of these for my little shop. Easy to assemble and a great-looking, sturdy shelf/cabinet. I wish the cutout on the lower rear of the shelf to accommodate the baseboard trim was larger - many homes in the US have larger baseboards than what this product accommodates. I put a 2" board under each shelf to lift it up so the shelf won't sit offset from the wall.
Great ProductBernardI bought this bookcase for my man-cave. To hold my stereo system.
Billy is the BestTerryI’ve planned over the past four years, adding to my Billy bookcase collection and the recent price reduction was the perfect time. I love the quality. And I expect, as my space needs change, I’ll be adding more in the future. Thank you!
Doesn't Ship Well DavidI received the original order with a broken side and then received a subsequent replacement order broken as well. I realize I am purchasing a particle board item, but (1) at least try to protect the item for shipping (2) change your shipping partner (I'm looking at you FedEx) or (3) design sturdier particle board items.
Love the Billy bookcasesLorrieHave purchased multiple times, and will purchase again. Work great in closets, bedrooms, studios.
Favorite item of mine!AntjeI've had multiple Billy shelves over the years. They look great, are sturdy and hold a lot of stuff!
