Flat Wall Bookholders - Small Size

Submitted by cdswhite on Sat, 07/02/2011 - 17:38

We really needed a place to organize my daughters books in the living room. These were fairly easy to make - my husband built them and I did the finishing.

I HIGHLY recommend the water-based poly. It is almost twice as expensive but it isn't near as smelly and it has a much lower VOC level.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
approx $10 for both (not including paint & poly)
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine (the nicer kind but not the nicest) & Furring Strips (for the small parts)
Finish Used
Black flat paint (2 coats) and Water-based Poly (2 coats).

We used black paint because I found a $5 gallon at HD from the discount shelf. I couldn't resist saving a ton of money and not having to pick a color and then wait around for a can to be mixed.
