"S" is for Shelves

I built storage shelves for books, toys and games.


These shelves are for Lily, she has been my 'test build' customer and she's not even 1 yet.


The plans are from Ana White's 6 cube bookshelf, I modified the top shelf by eliminating the dividers to accommodate board games, puzzles and larger odd sized toys.




Lucky for Lily so far I've made her tower shelves,



and now these storage shelves.


I'd say she's all set, for now.


I only have one progress picture but the build was fast and easy.
I used cabinet grade plywood and 1x2 boards with beadboard for the backing.


The pink fabric bins are from Target.

You definitely inspire me to want to build my own furniture. Perhaps someday I'll take the plunge. These look great.

Jenn said...

These are awesome! I love how you left the dividers out of the top shelf! How long would one of the shelves take you to do? I might just try it! Following you now! :)

Christine - Tutorial Addict lol said...

That is just AWESOME!! I LOVE how you changed it up, I like it without the dividers on the top part! GREAT JOB on ALL of those projects!

pinktoesandpowertools said...

I agree with the others--I really like it without the dividers in the top shelf. Really nice!

I aspire to one day be as productive as you. I, like Jenn, am curious how long it takes you to put one of these together? Need to know how far I've got to go on the productivity goals :)

Nikki said...

This is awesome... well done. Did you make them or your husband?

Jaime said...

Yes Nikki I built the shelves. My husband doesn't know where to find the drill and screws, I build everything I post, he watches the kids!

Jennifer said...

Jaime those are adorable! I didn't realize you built all your projects! I love that you build things while your husband watches the kids! I wish I could say that!
