Firstly, she put the bookcase at a single place to bring her idea into reality. For completing her vision, Amy purchased another Billy bookcase of the same size. Through the narrower view, she got the idea of using three shelves in her space.

With the help of quick and easy to use a paint sprayer, Amy painted all the bookcases with Benjamin Moore White Dove paint to achieve a perfect white finish.

At the time of preparation, Amy removed all the molding to avoid the use of backing that came with the Billy bookcases. So, she used the same white dove color to paint the several coats at the back of kitchen cabinet.
During construction, a little twist came as the bookcases were taller than the countertop. She let her dad help for this part for cutting down all the pieces to perfect size that would fit in that space.

When the shelves were fitted in the cabinet, Amy installed the front-facing trim in such a way that it would look like built-ins. She picked up all the lumber from her home depot.
