Leaning Shelves

My 5 year old son wanted a "Lego Creation Display Thing" to exhibit all his hard work with his beloved Legos. I knew this plan was perfect.

After styling it for the photo, I didn't want to give it to him, but keep it for myself instead! I think I need to build another one. Or two.

The building only took a few hours, but I spent a LOT of time on sanding and painting it perfectly for a professional finish.

I bought 1x8s instead of 1x4s and ripped them on my table saw, becasue I was able to get straighter boards that way and it was a tad cheaper.

(Bonus Brag: I refinished and reupholstered that blue chair!)
