Affordable Bookcases / Bookshelves
My Mom just retired and moved from a house with lots of built-in shelving to one with none. She has ninety boxes of books and we need bookcases asap. I've been amazed at how many furniture stores in our area (New Mexico) don't even stock bookshelves at all. We have about five IKEA 6-shelf 79" Billy bookcases in Beech Effect that actually look OK in my Mom's new place, so we'd considered ordering more of them despite the $350 shipping fee, but IKEA has stopped making the Billy in that color. Office Depot carries shelves in a similar color, but the biggest one's are only 5-shelf and appear to be even flimsier than the IKEA ones. Does anyone know of a company that makes decent quality tall, 6-shelf bookcases in that light-oak/light cherry/orangey-tan color? They just have to be IKEA-grade or better. Thank you.
