I didn't want a cheapo bookshelf and didn't want to spend several hundred dollars and a nice, solid wood bookshelf. My dad has all of the tools needed - so why not do it myself? So I did!
My dad helped cut the wood and assemble the two sides and the shelves. I did pretty much everything else myself. It's about 5'9"" tall and almost 2 feet wide
I'm so happy with how it turned out. This is exactly what I wanted... and even better 'cause I made it!
I probably spent about $75.00 total for everything and I have extra wood, trim, paint, etc. Maybe I'll build a coffee table next.
After cutting all of the wood - we used a Kreg jig to drill the holes.... so it's professionally done.
Assembling the shelves. I skipped over the obvious - sanding, painting, etc.
Added the trim.
Loaded up with books... and room to spare!
