About This Project

I used Aspen boards that are marketed for furniture. I found these at Lowes and they were pre-cut to the dimensions I wanted. I used beadboard for the back, mullion for the trim, and some dental moulding for the top.

My home seems to shrink in direct proportion to my daughter's growth. It seems we never have quite enough space for the new cache of toys, books, games, etc. So, I decided to look for a bookcase/storage center/desk that she could grow with and that might keep up with her. When I shopped for such a large item, the price tag was even larger. I decided to build one myself. I posted step-by-step directions with pictures on my blog: www.momthebuilder.net. Check it out and tell me what you think!
