Floating shelves for books + Vinyl storage

Submitted by careaud on Wed, 03/24/2021 - 14:50

I love Ana Whites's site. I go to it all the time when I have project ideas. The Video tutorials, combined with plans, is just amazing. Plus, the brag pages of people that have done projects from what they found here. Thank you Ana.

The floating shelves part was from Ana's site. The other part was done using my own plans (I used SketchUp to draw them)

My wife added the books, plants, and decorations, and I finally opened the dusty boxes that contained my insane LP collection. The experience has nothing to do with steaming music, it is far more complete.

I used plant-lantern brackets to prevent books from falling from the sides of the shelves. All done, this is great.

I would like to change the main picture, but I get strange messages from the site when I do this.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
This part is hard, as wood cost has never been this expensive. Also, the plant hocks were rather expensive. In fact, I don't want to know the total I've spent on this, but glad I did it myself, otherwise, cost would have doubled, if not more.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Knotty pine
Finish Used
Hard wood floor stain (2 coats on the sides, 3 on the main surfaces).

Wow, those shelves look amazing. And there is a lot of space, so you can store a lot of books there. I also have one shelf in my room, but it's pretty small, so my books also lay on the table and somewhere else in the room. That's why now I prefer getting ebooks or just reading something online. I'm a student, so it's not possible to buy everything I need to read, so I just use e-versions. The last time I went online, I read The Yellow Wallpaper, and I liked it a lot. I needed to write one, so I had to read it first. I also found this resource https://papersowl.com/examples/the-yellow-wallpaper/ with different The Yellow Wallpaper essay samples, which helped me so much with writing. I like to read something, analyze it, and then write, but there are situations when I'm just stuck and can't write. And that story has shown a lot of issues, so reading examples would be a good idea. And it's cool that I managed to find such info online and didn't buy something printed.
