Nursery Room Book Shelves from $10 Ledge Plan

Submitted by karahart on Wed, 05/11/2011 - 08:42

I built these bookshelves with the help of my husband for our daughter's nursery. They were so simple to build, the finishing work is what took the most amount of time. They're very sturdy, and we get tons and tons of compliments on the 'feel' that they add to the nursery!

Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Select Pine
Finish Used
I put on a coat of white primer, and then painted quite a few coats of ultra-white paint on each shelf. I sanded between each coat of paint, and finished it off with a top coat of polycrylic. I also filled in the screw holes with white caulk and painted over that once they were all mounted.
