I have been wanting a bookshelf in our computer room for some time now. Through my numberous searches I found either really cheap ones that would not stand up to my amount of books, or shelves that were too expensive. Thanks to Pinterest I found a DIY bookshelf that I thought I could do. And here it is….
Using wood crates I purchased at Michael’s (with a coupon for all of them!) I had a plan. I started by sanding the crates and making sure the slates were secured. I then used polyurethane and applied two coats to the inside and out of each crate (I chose to keep the wood natural to match our furniture). Once dry I secured the crates together using brackets and screws I purchased at Home Depot. This project took me about 8 hours and I enjoyed doing it.
And WALA! I made the bookshelf…all by myself…Just saying!
