These bookshelves were a great first project, mainly becasue with the affordability, ease and great look......I was able to convince my husband I was not crazy for wanting to build furniture. After all I was a Construction Management major in college, wood shop was my favorite class in junior high and I spent countless summers in Mexico building homes.
Well he is now convinced! This was the perfect addition to our playroom for our two kids. As they have transitioned out of the preschool years we need to update the look. These bookcases are the perfect size for most basket and cubbies.
The one lesson I have since learned and would do if I build these again is to make sure the guy cutting my boards at HD cut them all the same width.
