Built this bookcase based on the plans for the tall rustic X bookshelf, but made a couple modifications to use one entire sheet of plywood. It made for a monster bookshelf but is perfect for out needs! I also added the cross detail in the middle for extra support, I love how it turned out! I followed the tutorial that mimics restoration hardwares finish applied to originally the farmhouse table plans I think. Combination of weathered oak and special walnut stains with a satin poly.
Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Time Investment

Type of Wood

Followed most of the directions in this link, http://ana-white.com/2013/08/rustic-yet-refined-wood-finish , I didn't do the whitewash step though, I liked how it came out after the special walnut and weathered oak.
