D.I.Y bookcase

Hello Everyone,

 

When my son started to collect books he liked, it got put everywhere inside drawers, under beds etc. I didn't want to spend money on a cheap book case and have it fall apart after a year. Seeing as I had some left over mdf panels and paint I told the boss that I would make him one! I tell you there was a lot of suggestions and some even involved carrot cake! ( talk about bribery! ). While all this was going on I built it and painted it. Next thing you know it was at the foot of his bed!

 

Cheers,

Red

 

Easy Peasy!Easy Peasy!

Re: Book Case

Nice one @redracer01. I like the primary colours. It might be fun to have three lined up next to each other.

Hello @Jenny_O 

 

You know I really should have, but it's just held together with screws.

Re: D.I.Y bookcase

Thanks so much @MitchellMc. That’s great that I can get help at the store with the timber. I guess my only questions relate to putting it altogether!
