Last summer my dad helped me build a coffee table (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261880.msg2935847#msg2935847) so this summer my dad helped me build a book shelf! I did the same finish as the book shelf (super dark with a black glaze), and then I painted the trim at the bottom. Here's the finished product!













Thanks for looking! =)

That's really cool that you guys have a summer tradition like that!

I love how it turned out, and I especially like the motif you painted on the bottom.
