Barn door bookcase

Submitted by Kristi88 on Mon, 05/04/2020 - 15:20

This is my second project and I am really happy with how it turned out! I needed more storage in my kitchen but I only had a 3 foot wide wall to put this up against, so I altered the plans to 5 feet 7 inches tall by 3 feet wide. The handle is an antique from my great great grandmother and dates back to the 1800s. I think it adds some character to the piece.
Thank you for the plans Ana! I can't wait to start my next project!

This looks so beautiful! Similar to you, I have a 3 foot wide wall to place this against. As a beginner here, and my head hurting when I do try to adjust the measurements... Would you happen to still have the measurements that you utilized?
