I have finally completed my project!
Let me tell you, it's been a VERY time consuming
I got the idea from a pin I saw on Pinterest.
I have always wanted built in bookshelves and thought
this would be a way I could do it myself.
They are made with unfinished wooden crates from
Michael's and painted a creamy white.
I started collecting the crates and that wasn't quite as
simple as I thought it would be. Our Michael's does not
stock very many at a time and many times I'd go in only
to find they were out. The other problem I had was
that the quality was not consistent and I wouldn't buy
some of them. :(
I also used my coupons to get them 40% off as often
The paint I used was Mystique by Valspar. Boy, did I
get tired of painting crates! Then having to let them dry
long enough before they could be stacked.
I am still playing with all my little cubbies and trying
to figure out what I want to put on them.
I have too much stuff!
I love that I can have a huge book shelf that I can
take apart and move whenever I feel like it!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my finished project!
Have a wonderful weekend!
