first thing Ive made from a pile of wood

well it's hard to see in this picture becuase the loveseat is in the way but I made 2 of the 2x4 cube shelves and then added my own twist to add desk to the end of the shelves to take up the space ( intended ) left by the shelves and have the desk come out to wrap around the corner... I am very pleased and learned alot as these arent perfect but I still love them ( and my decor is not so "thrown" on there .. my daughter helped move them in and she was anxious to get them filled ) I was just so excited to take pictures and share online lol ..

I would like to add that apparently ( as I said I am very new to building ) and newbies should know that the measurements on lumber is 1/4 - 1/2 of an inch shy of what it sells as... BIG learning curve there .. I assumed it was so my cuts were off and had to improvise.. which is why my shelves aren't a true 2x4 cubby kinda shelf.. I put 3 dividers on on the bottom and only 2 on the top..
