Book Case

I know that we've not updated in quite some time. Friends have pointed this out to me. Well, the one that checks up on this mess, anyway.

Truth is, we took the winter off, and now that it's warmer and staying light longer, we are looking at starting a few projects. The first one, since I think November, is this bookcase. I started it last Tuesday night, cut out the shelves and routered the edges, and got the basic form put together.

Trimmed it out and started painting it on Saturday. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about getting the crown molding right, but am very pleased with how it turned out.

Finished painting it today. It's ready to install in my office.

We took most of the winter off, too. I'm not so sure about my husband, but it gave me renewed energy to work on the old girl again!

FABULOUS job on the bookcase! Record time, too! Looks great!

Have a great day!

I love the bookcase! I could use a few around the house....I'm going to email this post to my husband!

Great job! Was this a pretty easy project? We were thinking about tackling something similar...

not terribly difficult, Kim, if you have basic woodworking skills. My fall below average. I'd say from lumber yard to painted takes about ten or twelve hours total.
