I made these book shelves for Ry's room about a month and half ago and we finally hung them up yesterday. Yay!! I used these plans from Ana White (great site - highly recommend checking it out) to build them. I am very proud of myself as I had to use power tools (a scroll saw for one) which I never do.
I think they turned out well and were worth the $30 I spent for all 4 (note: we can't hang the 4th yet since Ry will definitely try to pull it down). I also used paint we had on hand...I believe it is the same can of oops paint we have used on the back door, an outdoor table as well as various other projects. Best $5 spent.
