365/293 The next project

I have finally built a shelf to house my scrapbooks {that was on my 40 before 40 list}. It is a different shelf than I originally thought I would build for them but this one will hold more items than just my scrapbooks. It still needs to be painted {trying to decide if white is the best choice} and completely assembled.

It is a project from Ana White’s new book, The Handbuilt Home. And thanks to my Brother’s Kreg Jig {I got to get one of these!} it was a breeze to make. It is just 1x4’s, MDF, about 150 screws and few nails. I made them narrower than the plan so I could get 2 in between the windows. Her plans are easy to read for the non-woodworker with cutting diagrams and tips.

Now on to painting…….
