Pin of the day: Can you make this windowseat/bookshelf combo with Ikea Billy Bookcases?

This morning, a pinner suggested that the look inspired by below image could be accomplished with Billy Bookcases…

Since I’ll be putting DH to work on building these, I am going to run this all by him before I embark on this project for DD#1’s room. she’s desperately in need of shelves, and a window nook did wonders for me and my love of reading as a child. By my estimate, this configuration would end up costing from $90 to $120 — not including the window seat foam and fabric.
I love Ikea, because so often I can find what I’m looking for by hunting Craigslist. Will set out with my measuring tape, my budget, and let you know if this project is a done deal, or a bust! what do you think?
