About This Project


My 13 year old daughter and I built these ledges together. We changed the plan just slightly to make two 36" ledges for her bedroom. She was able to do a lot of it, which was very cool. They are very "rustic" and she loves them. I am really shocked at how sturdy they are! Perfect for displaying some of her trophies that I was previously too afraid to let her put up in her room.

Thanks so much to Ana for giving us the courage to build things of our own!

These principles can be very generally described as love and consciousness. But to leave it at that is to leave much value untouched on the table.
