This is a blast! If there is anyone out there that still hasn't checked out Ana's site,
do yourself a favor and spend some time there. I have a list of projects that I am itching to start. The first one that called to me was the bankable bookcase and I did it!
My husband helped me out with the cuts on the table saw. Those sheets of wood are Heavy! But other than that, it is my project. I know that he was more than happy to help me out; he is the greatest. But I really wanted to do it by myself.
(wow, that really sounds like Addy, my 2 yr. old.)
Here it is, primed and ready to paint.
Check out my cute shop assistant.
I should have asked for help measuring, I measured where I wanted it about 10 times. I was so worried that it wouldn't fit. Our house is very small, and everything has to fit just right
(like a puzzle).
Guess what? it doesn't fit !?!???
I didn't think to measure the doorway, I wanted to cry. After all that work, I couldn't put it in the closet the right direction. So instead of seeing my cute bookshelf with toys and boys all nicely organized (at least for the picture) I can only see the end. Because of the width of the doorway and the light fixture, I can't turn it. The walls are all dinged up now, too, from my trying.
I thought about moving it to Cort and Chan's bedroom, but after all of Collin's work on it, I couldn't just give his bookshelf away. Maybe after I finish one for each of them, I will have them trade. But for now, we get to enjoy it from the end.
I love this color, it looks great in Collin's room. I wish that I had a better picture
of the finished project, but I didn't bother to take one in my workshop (kitchen)
because I was going to get it once it was in the closet,
oh well... I will do better next time--you better believe there will be a next time.
This is so fun!
