Office Bookcases

After moving in together, Zach and I decided we were definitely going to need more book storage for our combined collection.  We couldn’t really find anything at our price point that was exactly what we wanted, so I decided to use some leftover/new wood to make some!

We wanted the bookcases to be able to fit some of our oversize art books as well as fit the room to look quasi like built ins, so I adapted this plan from Ana White and went to town!

So happy with how these 3 bookcases turned out!

Furniture building experiment

After moving in I decided I wanted a little makeup vanity for our bedroom, and couldn’t quite find anything that was going to be the right size.  So I decided to try my hand at building one.  I found this plan online, and modified it roughly using this plan to the specs I wanted (2 drawers and a different depth).

I ended up going with a darker stain to compliment the other furniture in our bedroom

The mostly finished product! (sans pulls)

All in all I spent less that I would’ve to buy something that wasn’t quite perfect, and I think with my leftover materials I’ll try my hand at making some bookshelves!
