These shelves are great because you can make them any size you want! As you can see, these were made to hold my daughter's monster high collection, took advantage of dead space between the wall and the window. I put these together with my Kreg Jig so they're very sturdy. I couldn't buy shelves as nice as these, TWO OF THEM! for under 10 dollars. If you're thinking of building these, stop thinking, start doing, they're well worth your time and effort.
