A few years ago, I bought these bookcases at IKEA. They have served, and continue to serve their purpose quite well. But alas, they have reached their capacity. Last weekend, while walking through the Marketplace at IKEA, I stumbled upon a room set up with these cabinets but with height extenders on top. Needless to say this was a "quick intake of breath" moment. Not more than 30 minutes later I was in Aisle 1, bin 67 filling my cart with all the necessary parts for these extenders.
This morning I have committed to assembling these extenders and getting them in place.

All things considered, I'm glad I installed the extenders. I now have a nice clean look and as you can see it offers plenty of extra storage for books and other "tools of the trade."
During this project I found some books from my childhood. Here is a Whitman cloth book with a copyright of 1959, the year I was born.
And a Random House Mother Goose book that I received January 24, 1964.
