About This Project

This was my second Ana White project and with this project I really began to feel like a builder. I did modify the plan to make it less tall to fit in the space I needed it for. I also added a front to the shelves because ultimately these were going to be used for starting plant cuttings and I want the front to cover up the plastic pots they are growing in.

The cost of the project is for 2 of the modified shelves and does not include the screws, putty, etc. Also, the time needed would change if you chose better boards than furring strips. Those take a lot of time to make nice at the start of the project. This would also go together quicker if you are only building one shelf instead of two (obviously!).

I'm very happy with the end result! I wrote 9 blog posts on building this project for a more in-depth look at this build.

Estimated Cost: 
$40 just for the wood (2 of these in the modified, shorter version)
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
pine furring strips and pine boards
Finish Used: 
General Finishes water-based stain in Espresso. Topcoat is General Finishes High Performance Water-Based Poly in Satin.

friend request

Kristen I'm trying to send you a friend request from Ana's site but I can't figure out how to do it. I'd love to link up over here because I think Ana's site is so much of what we do and so relevant that it can only lead to go things. If you can figure it out will you let me know?
Thanks
Jaime

Dimensions?

Hey! Do you happen to have the dimensions or a cut list of the materials you used with your version of the leaning shelves?? I love this size and it would work perfectly in my home. Thanks!

Hi--

I can get a general list for you--give me a day or two to get that together. I've got posts about the build on my blog, but I don't think I put together a cut list. This project was awhile ago so I can't remember specifically--check out:

pinktoesandpowertools.wordpress.com

there's a woodworking category with a subcategory "Leaning Wall Shelves". I've got 9 posts about this build there.

I'll get that cut list too--check back :)
